TAHOE RIM TRAIL NEWS
The Tahoe Rim Trail Association announced the naming of the Stephen S. Ball Mile. In May of 2014, Tahoe Rim Trail Association was informed of a generous unrestricted bequest from the Stephen Ball Revocable Trust. The first distribution was presented to the Association on Aug. 29. The mile dedicated in Steve’s honor is the last mile completed on the Rim to Reno project, linking the Tahoe Rim Trail on Relay Ridge to the top of Mt. Houghton. It affords panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the Highway 80 corridor and beyond. This mile is especially fitting due to the historical connection of Steve and his family to the Highway 80 corridor.
