The Rubicon Trail is an extreme 4×4 rock crawling trail located near Lake Tahoe in the California High Sierra?. Also known as the McKinney-Rubicon Springs Road, The Rubicon Trail is located in the California High Sierra due west of Lake Tahoe & appx 80 miles east of Sacramento. Rated 10 as being “most difficult” on a scale of 1-10 & known as the “Granddaddy of all off highway trails” it is appx. 12 miles of incredibly scenic albeit ROCKY un-maintained El Dorado and Placer county road. The ceremonial “Trailhead” is at Georgetown, which is a small town nestled on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California’s Gold Country . West of Tahoe, East of Sacramento, North of Yosemite National Park and south of I-80 and Donner Pass. Flying there is the best way to arrive, they have a little airport perched on the highest mountain nearest the town. Driving there is beautiful but windy.
Ask ANYONE in Georgetown and they’ll tell you how to get to the “actual” trailhead which is several miles east of town adjacent to Loon Lake.
Georgetown is synonymous with the Rubicon Trail. The town is built around servicing and supplying Rubicon adventurers and their rigs.
