El Dorado County has officially closed the Rubiocn Trail due to wet trail conditions. This is a temporary closure and will be lifted when the trail dries out.

From an email I received at 10:39am:


A TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THE RUBICON TRAIL FEBRUARY 25, 2014.

All three conditions of the monitoring protocol have been met and the Rubicon Trail is closed until further notice. Transportation crews will monitor and open the trail as soon as conditions allow.

This notice will also be posted to the County website.

Parks Manager
County of El Dorado
Chief Administrative Office



FYI -
The three conditions are:
1) The soil is saturated to the point where water can no longer soak in
2) The depth of water greater than 8 inches (capable of rinsing contaminants from the bottom of a vehicle)
3) The water is flowing so that it can transport sediment.

El Dorado County has re-opened the Rubicon Trail.

There is a survey scheduled for Friday (tomorrow) that could go either way for us.

Stay tuned.

El Dorado County sent out an email this afternoon stating that the Rubicon Trail is again closed from Wentworth Springs to the county line on the north edge of the Rubicon Springs private property.

The Ellis Creek tie is open from Loon Lake to the intersection with the Rubicon Trail.

Open, Open, Open!

El Dorado County has reopened the Rubicon Trail.

FOTR will work on the problem section this summer to prevent future closures.

Unless there is a heavy rain storm, the trail should remain open for the summer.

The recent warm weather and rain storms have again caused too much flow on the Rubicon, so, it has been closed, again.

This closure should only last through Friday but stay tuned.
