See Lake Tahoe from all angles on the Tahoe Rim Trail; experience vista after vista.

The Tahoe Rim Trail is a circular journey of over 170 miles (270 km) that circumnavigates Lake Tahoe, crossing into both California and Nevada. The TRT traverses the Sierra Nevada and Carson ranges of California and Nevada, and shares about 50 miles of its western section with the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. On the Tahoe Rim Trail, there is no defined beginning or end. Thru-hikers and backpackers can begin anywhere on the loop. Along its path, the trail offers many stunning views of Lake Tahoe, which makes it perfect for day-hiking. Hikers and visitors wishing to give back to the Tahoe Rim Trail can adopt a mile or vista through the Tahoe Rim Trail Association.

Works Offline, No Data Required

Once you’ve completed the initial setup of the app, all of our trail guides work offline. They use your device’s internal GPS to display your current location and guide you along the route. Offline use includes access to the key features of the guide, including the map, elevation profile, waypoint list, and more.

Trusted Trail Data

All of the data for our routes is collected by trusted individuals and partners, and is kept meticulously up to date. The track of each trail includes side trails and alternate routes, along with key waypoints. Our apps also offer comprehensive town guides, helping you resupply and access other services quickly.

Built for Community

Stay informed about trail conditions ahead by reading other hikers’ waypoint comments, and let other hikers know about your experience by leaving your own comments. Keep your friends and family up to date by sharing your current location from a Google Maps link sent via email or text message.

Offline Maps

Our variety of offline map sets, optionally downloaded as part of the initial setup and accessible offline afterwards, can give you extra quality information such as topographic lines with elevation values and satellite imagery.

Detailed Waypoints

Waypoints are plotted on a map and elevation profile, and each includes its own detail page with photos and descriptions. Water waypoints offer the most up-to-date water information, gathered from trusted sources and checked by other users.

Tailored to You

Plan your day by letting the app calculate the distance to the next campsite, water source, or other waypoint. Not every hike is the same, and we know that. Create your own custom routes using our route builder tool.
