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 Pacific Crest Trails Association 2023 Tahoe Trail Skills College is possible thanks to the U.S. Forest Service.

Camping will be provided on Friday and Saturday nights, on-site at Hobart Work Center. The campground will have water, bathrooms, and parking.
Can I just attend for one day?
No- all classes at this year’s event are two-day courses, so partial attendance will not be possible.
What’s the fitness level of Trail Skills College?
The fitness level of the field sessions will vary depending on the classes you select during registration. However, all participants should be prepared to hike a minimum of 1-2 miles while carrying personal gear and tools. Participants should also be prepared for the hands-on learning opportunities in many of these classes, resulting in 6 hours of active trail maintenance per day.
