Rubicon Trail – Club Run (AT FULL CAPACITY ALREADY)

June 12 - June 20

**This trip is AT FULL CAPACITY already **

The Rubicon trail has long been called the Grand Daddy of all off-road trails! It’s known all around the world for not only its extremely challenging terrain but for its unsurpassed beauty.

Perhaps the best-known and most popular 4×4 trail in the world. A rare combination of difficulty, beauty, length and pure rock-crawling pleasure. Great camping next to crystal-clear lakes with stunning views. Most people drive the trail in the direction described here, but it can be driven in both directions. The trail reaches elevations above 7,000 feet and is partially snow-covered in the winter. However, only the Granite Bowl is officially closed to vehicular travel at that time. From a practical standpoint, however, the trail is for summer use.

A mix of granite slabs, soft dirt, sharp rocks and large boulders that require precise maneuvering to avoid body damage. Several extreme sections can be bypassed but many very rough sections cannot. Cadillac Hill is very steep, tippy and potentially dangerous. During wet periods, one water crossing can be very deep and muddy. Extremely dusty with a tight brush in places. With an expert spotter, you might get a stock, high clearance, short-wheel-based 4WD vehicle through without body damage, but the average driver should not try it. Best done in a modified vehicle with ample body protection and lockers.

Meetup: 6:30AM departing at 7:00AM. Summit 4×4 Company at 402 N Sheldon St, Prescott AZ 89301.

Trail Rating: Difficult – Deep washouts, challenging rock obstacles and steep climbs. If you have the driving skills, a brand new stock Wrangler can be driven through the Rubicon, taking the bypasses. Most people should expect sheet metal damage, at a minimum. Larger tires (33”), a lift kit (3”), body protection (rocker guards) and a locking or limited-slip differential should be considered to prevent damage.
Not recommended for stock vehicles. High clearance, Min 33″ off-road tires, lockers and good articulation are needed.
**Reminder, this is a family-friendly club, no alcohol is allowed during the trail run. **
