Sorry they are late to be posted.
My understanding is that every year Jeepers jamboree gets a “parade permit” from El Dorado County. This allows JJ to close the Rubicon Trail for exclusive use by their participants. The trail is open to the public Midnight to 6am.
Let’s be clear, this is an El Dorado County closure only. All trails within Placer County are open for public use.
That being said, I would urge users to stay clear due to the sheer volume of vehicle coming out, specifically on those Sundays.
El Dorado County has scheduled rock work for Cadillac Hill for October 17, 18 & 19. Expect extended delays and/or a possible temporary closure. I will try to post timeline details as the date gets closer.
This project was previously scheduled for Oct 3, 4 & 5 but was pushed back due to the helicopter company being needed to fight the CA wildfires.
Although the paperwork between El Dorado County and the Tahoe National Forest has not been completed, Jeepers Jamboree will work Cadillac Hill next month. El Dorado County will fly in the needed rock. JJ will put down cyclone fencing, fill it with rock and wrap-it to secure the rock in place and cover with more rock. Some concrete work will also be done as needed in various spots. Besides securing the trail from sliding off the hill, improving the drainage of water OFF the trail is also a goal.
Please avoid Cadillac Hill that weekend to allow this crew to work without interruption. It is in all of our best interest to stabilize Cadillac Hill so the trail is there after each winter.
