Rubicon Trail – CLOSED!

El Dorado County has officially closed the Rubiocn Trail due to wet trail conditions. This is a temporary closure and will be lifted when the trail dries out.

From an email I received at 10:39am:

A TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THE RUBICON TRAIL FEBRUARY 25, 2014.

All three conditions of the monitoring protocol have been met and the Rubicon Trail is closed until further notice.  Transportation crews will monitor and open the trail as soon as conditions allow. 

This notice will also be posted to the County website.

FYI –
The three conditions are:
1) The soil is saturated to the point where water can no longer soak in
2) The depth of water greater than 8 inches (capable of rinsing contaminants from the bottom of a vehicle)
3) The water is flowing so that it can transport sediment.
