Long Lake Trail Maintenance 7-28-21Posted: July 28, 2021
The Long Lake Trail is at the bottom of Cadillac Hill and runs along the Rubicon River for 0.91 miles. Yes, I’m getting that specific as there is a definite end of the trail that we must adhere to or we could lose the entire trail.
The kiosk at the trailhead received some new paperwork as the old ones were wet and faded.
A few nuisance boulders were removed from the center of the trail. These were not obstacles that added anything to the trail experience, just something to go around and make the trail wider.
The campsite area had the old drive through route blocked off (again) and signed to explain why. The Forest Service has prohibited the area as a drive through. If we don’t play by the rules, we could lose the campsite.
This step got some reworking. There was an undercut developing which is nothing anyone wants to try and drive up. It only leads to breakage. And the boulder in the middle of nowhere is one of those nuisance boulders that was moved. This one was moved in to the undercut area and built in to a ramp.
Two routes were maintained. Easy towards the river (right side) and harder (but not tough) closer to the HUGE boulder.
The end of the trail has been blocked and signed to prevent travel and inform the users.
Please get out there and explore and enjoy your trails. The Long Lake Trail is adopt and maintained by the Lake Tahoe Hi-Lo’s.
