Trails challenge and auction kick off Thursday

More than 100 silent and live auction packages have been donated by local businesses and individuals for the Carson Valley Trails Association’s silent and live auction set for 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Genoa Town Hall. The auction is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations are required.

Thursday is also the first day of CVTA’s Hike for Health Trails Challenge, a month-long event that will offer weekly guided hikes, walks and trail adventures for registered participants.

Among the auction packages are a week-long vacation at a historic Chesapeake Bay farm, golf at Edgewood Tahoe and Genoa Lakes Golf Courses, Lake Tahoe sailboat cruises, a 2011 Kirkwood season ski pass, Reno Aces tickets and a variety of gift baskets with gift certificates provided by area restaurants, businesses and individuals.

“We hope a lot of people will join us on April 22 so they can sign up for the trails challenge and learn more about the Genoa Foothill Trail System project that this fundraiser will support,” said CVTA president Kerstin Wolle. “The Genoa Foothill Trail will be something for everyone in our community to enjoy for years to come.”

The Genoa Foothills Trail System project is funded by a Question 1 grant from the Nevada Division of State Lands. The 22-mile Genoa Foothill Trail will be located in the foothills of the Carson Range west of the town of Genoa, and to the north and south from Adams Canyon to the Kingsbury Grade. CVTA has paid for all of the environmental studies for the project, which were initiated in 2009 and will continue this year. Funds raised by the 2010 Hike for Health fundraiser will be used to pay for trail construction, which is expected to begin in 2011.

The 2010 Hike for Health events have been funded by donations from GE Energy and Clif Bar. For more information visit the CVTA website

The Carson Valley Trails Association is a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization working with partners to provide access to public lands through a recreational trail system for present and future generations to enjoy.
