Mountain Biking Rubicon Trail

***   Add a review
#576 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#7,349 in the world

The rubicon trail is one of the most well know 4x4 trail among off road enthusiast. This trail would make an amazing ride on a mountain bike. It's pretty long coming in at 20 miles so get an early start. If you choose you can even make it a two day trip and camp at spider lake. Plenty to see and lots of different trail from easy to technical.

Getting there
Take Hwy.50 out of Tahoe to Riverton. Make a "Right" on "Ice House Road" It is some what of an easy turn off to miss. Follow Ice house road to Loon Lake and follow up to the end til you come up to a Damn. Follow along the damn and it will take you down to the spill way. This is where most of the people will enter, to start at the rock slabs. The other way, and the real start of the Rubicon is at Wentworth Springs. Follow Ice House Road and pass the Loon Lake turn off. Follow the signs to Wentworth Springs. You will pass old delapitated cabins from the day and then some camp sites. Here is a couple of links below.

    Mainly a hiking trail. Too many walkers to ride well. Some sections say no bike allowed?? Some spectacular views either way.
