2020 Tahoe Trail Skills College

The Tahoe Trail Skills College is a free weekend event for volunteers to learn about trail maintenance and stewardship. Beginners and experts alike can benefit from Trail Skills College courses like Intro to Trail Maintenance, Waterbars & Checks and more.

Trail Skills College is offered free of charge in an effort to inspire stewardship of trails. In exchange for attending the training, we encourage you to volunteer at least 16 hours of work on trail projects in the coming year.

The 2020 Tahoe Trail Skills College is possible thanks to the U.S. Forest Service and Osprey.

When is it?

Out of deep concern for the health and safety of the PCT community and beyond, we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Tahoe Trail Skills College, which was originally scheduled for July 17-19, 2020.

Thinking about next year?

Don’t forget, you can learn new trail maintenance skills by volunteering on a PCTA trail crew any time. Most crews don’t require any previous trail maintenance experience. Knowledgeable and experienced crew leaders are on site to teach you the necessary skills.  Visit PCTA’s online schedule to find trail projects near you.
