“Stunning views of Emerald Bay and Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2014

Start the trail at VIkingsholm and hike along Emerald Bay to Rubicon point. The almost 5 mile hike will provide you with stunning views of Emerald Bay and the Lake Tahoe beyond.

“Great trail along southwestern Lake Tahoe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2014

This is a beautiful trail and mostly flat with only moderate up and downs! A tip....start the hike in the state park....we started at vikingsholm which had a really step uphill return!

“Lives up to it's name”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2014

I travel to Moab often and wanted to come see if the hype was real or not. IT IS REAL. This trail is the real deal. DO NOT go on it trail if you don't have a guide. I hired Rubicon Safaris to take me and it was worth every cent.

“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Amazing trail but rugged. Need to be prepared with spare parts and wilderness camping. Need to be experience with difficult Jeep trails.

“Rubicon Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Granddaddy of them all, a "10" should be on all offroaders bucket list. Jeep Jamboree does a great job once a year putting a rally together. Don't try this alone.
