What makes the Northern California Xtreme Hike unique?

This year our hikers will trek a 23.2-mile route, beginning on the spine of the Carson Range, complete with sun-drenched meadows, cool pine forests and windswept mountain passes. The more rugged central portion of the segment weaves through monumental old growth junipers with stunning vistas of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra. For more information on the Tahoe Rim Trail, visit their website here



Hikers will be supported again this year by Y Explorer Hike Guides  leading them safely throughout the trail from beginning to end.

Xtreme Hike weekend begins on Friday, September 18th with a Welcome Kickoff dinner for all hikers and guests and ends on Sunday, September 20th with a Victory brunch!
