Tree Trivia Snowshoe Trek

February 8, 2022

10:00 am - 2:00 pm

September 27 @ 7:31 pm

The Sugar Pine Foundation (SPF) and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) have teamed up for a morning of education and fun as we snowshoe along the Tahoe Rim Trail to the iconic Castle Rock and loop back to the Kingsbury North Trailhead. This will be a moderate, leisure snowshoe trek. However, it could be more challenging if snow levels are deep. Along the way, our experts and friends at the Sugar Pine Foundation will reveal the mysterious world of trees including a discussion of the fate of Lake Tahoe’s favorite woody perennial, the magnificent Sugar Pine, and what individuals are doing to help the species persevere for future generations. We will have lunch at with an expansive lake view, so please remember to bring lunch, snacks, and a camera.

What to Expect

TRTA/SPF treks are group treks, and we do our best to keep the group together. Trip leaders dedicate a great deal of their time throughout the year sharing their passion for the outdoors. They are well-trained and experienced. Please respect their decisions made on the trail.
