Rubicon Trail

Rubicon Trail Closure
The King Fire tripled in size overnight and is now 8 miles outside of Alpine Meadows. The Rubicon Trail is closed from the Placer County trailhead in the Lake Tahoe Basin.  The Department of Public Works prohibits recreational vehicle access from the Lake Tahoe Basin to the trail at this time due to the fire.

What is it?

The historic Rubicon Trail is primarily recognized today as a world-renowned 4-wheel drive route.  It is not owned or operated by Placer County, but the Department of Public Works recognizes the public easement and public rights to pass on the trail
