News of the long awaited Adopt a Trail program for the world famous Rubicon Trail is out. The Rubicon Trail Foundation is pleased to announce that the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors has approved the Adopt a Trail Program that has been in the works for over 10 years. Adopt a Trail allows clubs, organizations, or even an individual or unsanctioned group to adopt a section of the trail to do maintenance and cleanup work.
With the help of Friends of the Rubicon and the Rubicon Trail Foundation, this program can give trail users a sense of ownership of the trail. As current President of the Rubicon Trail Foundation and one of the charter members of the Friends of the Rubicon, I’m happy to see this actually happen. It makes all the long nights working on it worthwhile.
The Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF) was formed in 2004. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to the future health of the Rubicon Trail and our mission is to enhance the future health and use of the Rubicon Trail, while ensuring responsible motorized year-round trail access. FOTR (Friends of the Rubicon) and RTF works with individuals, 4x4 clubs, organizations, and agencies to maintain and manage the trail. Our Officers and Directors represent a wide variety of Rubicon Trail OHV users, land owners, county representatives, manufacturers, and event organizers.
