THIS MAP: Rubicon Trail Map Revised 2000.

Located 45 miles northeast of Sacramento. The trail starts near Loon Lake and ends at Lake Tahoe, California. Both street legal and green stickered vehicles are allowed. Very aggressive mountain terrain for short wheelbase four wheel drives and experienced ATV or motorcycle riders.

General Information
The Jeepers Jamboree in Georgetown (530) 333-4771 or (530) 333-4777 has been guiding 4WD enthusiasts through the Rubicon trail since 1953. Today the trail is the most written about 4WD trail in the United States. The narrow passages, rocky climbs and occasional mud hole keep the trail rated as "Most Difficult." The granite slabs, remote lakes, and mountain beauty create a desire to return every year. The trail is recommended for short wheel base vehicles with some type of rocker panel protection, and even then you may pick up a scratch or dent. Each year the snow fall closes the Rubicon trail in late October or early November. The snow melts off in June or July, leaving behind a graphic illustration of the power of running water--rocks are moved and the trail takes on a new look.

Since 1989 I've watched the Little Sluice become nearly impassable and the Big Sluice clean-out. On my first trip across the Rubicon, six out of the seven vehicles received some type of damage. I saw a full size 4WD pickup (not recommended) finish the trail with both doors damaged (major dents), trail scars in the pickup bed, and the rear bumper twisted into a new position. The Rubicon Trail is best suited for vehicles no wider than a Jeep/Bronco or longer than a Toyota pickup. If your pleasure is mountain biking, motorcycling, or ATV riding, I suggest camping the end of the pavement just west of Wentworth Springs. From here you can explore the Rubicon trail or the many roads in the area. You can also camp near the Rock Creek OHV area just 4 miles east of Georgetown off Wentworth Springs Road. Maps of this area are available at the Georgetown Ranger Station. For information call (530) 333-4312 (24 hours).

Traveling from west to east has become the most common route and although you can reach Lake Tahoe in one day, the beauty of the Sierras and the challenging Rubicon trail create a desire to linger for several days, But without a doubt, once you have completed the Rubicon trail, the feeling of success will overwhelm you. You and your equipment will have completed one of the most difficult and talked about trails in the United States.
