The Rubicon Trail – Teraflex Trail Review
The Rubicon Trail is one of the most iconic 4×4 trails in the United States. It’s a Jeeper’s dream trail and its at the top of many 4×4 enthusiast’s bucket lists. The Rubicon Trail is located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and runs approximately 16 miles from the gold mining town of Georgetown, California to scenic Lake Tahoe. It can be run in either direction.
While the majority of 4×4 enthusiasts may rate the Rubicon Trail as a 10 today, other more hardcore 4-wheelers will rate it a mere 7 out of 10 in difficulty. Take a ride with Dennis Wood from Teraflex as he reviews the Rubicon Trail during the 2013 Jeep Jamboree. Wood shows us the ins and outs of the trail today. He also shows us how the trail is quickly evolving and recalls video footage from some of the most well known obstacles on the trail from just 2 years ago (2011).
Along with some excellent Rubicon Trail video footage, Wood also gets a chance to speak with trail veteran Mark Smith from the Jeep Jamboree. Smith tells us that the first Jeep Jamboree was run almost 60 years ago and its main objective was to encourage tourism in the town of Georgetown. Little did he know that the Rubicon Trail would become the famous trail that it is today.
With the help of the Jeep Jamboree, 4×4 enthusiasts and 4×4 clubs of the past and the future, the Rubicon Trail will remain as one of the greatest 4×4 trails in the United States.
