Next summer I am going to the Rubicon. I'd like to get a few people together to go. If you're interested, post up. Lets work out a date.

What is the weather like up there in June?
Is it a special event/time?
If the Pirates are going Id be stoked to run it with them.

It takes 3 days?
Does it loop back to the trailers?
Any re-fuelin spot along the way? Propane and gas?

The Rubi is only 12 miles and yes it takes 3-4 days to do. I'm not sure if it loops or not. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be hard to get all the info on the net. Some day I'll get up there.

July or August might be better times.. July28-aug8th is the jeep jamboree and reserved.

June, July and August, with some September runs, are the best times to run the trail. July and August are the busiest times as you have no snow to worry about. Remember the trail is up in the 6000-7000 foot range of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of CA.


All vehicles that are operated on public lands must be registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The registration fee is $21 per vehicle, and is valid for a two-year period.

I'd be up for that. I'd like to get back up there sooner but I would be able too.
I don't need a winch, I wheel a Toyota!!!!

I'm a firm believer in the double standard!!!!!!!!

It is more like 18 miles. I believe the 12 miles is the harder part of the trail. Most of the people park at the loon lake side, wheel in to where ever they want to go then wheel back out to thier trailers.

most times by memorial day the trail is dried up and snowless unless they have had a heavy snowfall.
