Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Northeastern & Central California and Northern Nevada

The Trailblaze Challenge is a 23.2 mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Tahoe Rim Trail - all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.

Hikers will choose between the two hike weekends, August 6-8 OR August 13-15. Make-A-Wish will make every effort to accomodate your first choice. 

As well as being an extraordinary physical test, the real challenge is to raise much-needed funds to grant the wishes of children in Northeastern & Central California and Northern Nevada with critical illnesses. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together, and unites communities.

By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, you will help Make-A-Wish Northeastern & Central California and Northern Nevada grant even more wishes this year.

How Do I Get Started?

To begin your journey, you'll need to attend an information meeting. These meetings are designed to inform you about the mission of Make-A-Wish and describe in-detail the weekend-long hike event.

Info sessions fill up quickly - RSVP today to reserve your spot!
