Rubicon Trail Still Closed

The Lake Tahoe Basin Management (LTBMU) Unit still has the Rubicon Trail closed until October 20th.

  • The Caldor Fire is 98% contained.
  • There has been rain and snow over the entire area.
  • Temperatures are ranging from the 20’s to the 60’s.
  • The Rubicon Trail is open in Eldorado National Forest
  • The Rubicon Trail is open in the Tahoe National Forest
  • There are no strong winds forecast

Why is the Rubicon still closed?

Where is the Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF)?

  • RTF’s mission statement: “To Enhance the Future Health and Use of the Rubicon Trail, while Ensuring Responsible Motorized Year-Round Access.”

Why is RTF not ensuring our “year-round access”?

Does anyone fight for the Rubicon anymore? Is this the future of the Rubicon, seasonal closures due to possible fire conditions? If someone doesn’t push back, we will lose our trail during future summers as we’ve lost it this past summer.

FYI, if you go up to check out the trail status first hand, the bathrooms at the staging area are closed.
