What is the Truckee Meadows Trails Challenge?

The Truckee Meadows Trails Challenge (TMTC) motivates participants to get out and explore many of the hiking trails and public parks around the Reno area. At the same time, you will be supporting our parks through the Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation.

TMTC is a self-guided program where you choose the trails you want to hike and the challenge level - basic, moderate, and advanced - after signing up. You can pick basic trails or go for it with up to 50 miles of trails. You consider your own interests and fitness level in making your selections. Individuals, families, and groups can all take the challenge.

How to Join the Truckee Meadows Trails Challenge

Go to the Truckee Meadows Trails Challenge website, then click over to the registration page to enter your information and send payment. Shortly thereafter, you will receive an email with the TMTC Guide book and Trail booklet with a complete list of possible trails in the Truckee Meadows. Decide which trails are right for your personal challenge. Registration includes online access to the TMTC members page with trail information, guidebook, and more.

As you complete your hikes, enter them in your trail log book. You have a year from the time you sign up to finish your challenge. Once you have completed all of your trails, submit your log to TMTC and you will receive your "I Survived the Truckee Meadows Trails Challenge" t-shirt.
