Come to Northern California and Nevada and enjoy eight AVA Year-Round and Seasonal events and a Ski event. We have it all!

The Tahoe Trail Trekkers is a local walking and hiking club which is part of a national organization called A.V.A. (American Volkssport Association). A.V.A. is a non-profit, educational association that promotes fun, fitness and friendship by providing non-competitive walking, biking and other sporting events for everyone.


The Tahoe Trail Trekkers sponsor a American Volkssport Association(AVA)Regular Event: Four Year Round and four Seasonal Walks, and a Winter Ski event. Our walks are located in two states (California and Nevada) including the Nevada Capital Walk.

The Seasonal Walks are located in Tahoma(West Lake Tahoe),CA., Truckee,CA. and two in Tahoe City,CA. from May 1 to November 30 each year. Some alternate routes are also available. The club also sponsors an AVA cross country ski event in the winter in Tahoe City. There are four Year-Round walks all located in Nevada. Reno ,Sparks, Carson City (Capital Walk ), and Virginia City.
There are over 1300 year-round (YRE’S) walks in the U.S. that you can do almost any day of the year with anyone you would like to invite along. All you have to do is register at the starting point and get your directions for the walk. They are usually 10km or 5 KM (6.2 or 3.1 miles) in length and take approximately 2- 3 hours to complete.

Weekend events are hosted by local clubs throughout the year, in varied, often historic locations.

All kinds of people get involved in Volkswalking. They walk for the exercise, a love of the outdoors, the awards of socializing. People attend the events to stay fit, to meet people, and to see things they might miss if they simply drove through the area.

Volksporting is many things. It is going for a walk with other people – on the trail, through a park, forest, historical area or right in your own neighborhood. It is going for a bike ride, a cross-country ski-adventure, or a swim with family and friends. The goal of the American Volksport Association is to promote physical fitness and good health by encouraging all people, regardless of age, race, color, creed, or economic status, to exercise in a stress-free environment.
