The Rubicon Trail, a world-renowned OHV resource, is the birthplace of organized 4x4 recreation in California. The Rubicon Trail is now widely recognized as the premiere OHV route in the United States and has been called the "Crown jewel of all off highway trails.” It has continually provided OHV recreation for over 50 years. At one time, it was revered as the most difficult, rated 10 on a scale of one to 10, due to its narrow passages and rocky climbs.
The Rubicon Trail attracts both street legal and “green sticker” off-road motor vehicles. As a result, users travel the trail on and in a wide range of all-terrain vehicles, including dirt bikes and a variety of 4-wheel drive vehicles, from street-legal SUVs to vehicles built for the sole purpose of driving the trail.
