Ward Creek Trailhead



Stay tuned for the next volunteer opportunity!


Join Teens 4 Tahoe and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association for a trail day!

Volunteering with Teens 4 Tahoe is a great way to get outside with your friends, and earn those community service hours you need for school!

What To Expect

Workdays generally run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and no experience is necessary. Our trained crew leaders will meet you and the rest of the day’s volunteers at the trailhead and teach you everything you need to know about safety, tools and trail maintenance and construction techniques. After hiking to the work site carrying tools and supplies you’ll work until lunch taking water and rest breaks as needed. Work varies widely depending on the project, but can include cutting back vegetation, restoring eroded trail, constructing trail features or digging sidehill. A few more hours of work after lunch and the crew will return to the trailhead and celebrate a job well done!

Meeting Location:

This workday is subject to change based on weather.  We will meet at the Ward Creek Boulevard Trailhead south of Tahoe City. From Highway 89, turn west onto Ward Avenue, and turn left to stay on Ward Avenue at the first intersection. Continue for 1.9 miles as Ward Avenue becomes Ward Creek Boulevard. Look for the TRT kiosk on the left side of the road just past a dirt forest road. We will carpool and caravan past the FS gate as long as everyone is vaccinated and comfortable wearing masks in the vehicles.
