Backpacking the Tahoe Rim Trail Janet Loomis and Heidi Blischke
Janet Loomis and Heidi Blischke backpacked the Tahoe Rim Trail during a 3 week period in August of 2020. This trail goes around the circumference of Lake Tahoe and goes through both California and Nevada. Based on the STRAVA app, they hiked 192 miles with a 29,400' elevation gain. They chose this trail not only for it's beauty, but also for accessibility for resupplies, and the lack of permits needed, with the exception of 2 days in Desolation Wilderness. They will be presenting some slides from each day they were on the trail.
