2 XR650L's, 1 XR600, 1 XR650R, KTM525, KTM500, KTM535 Seven friends and I decided to combine camping and riding our dual sports. I've been to the Rubicon a few times so I said why don't we do a loop out of my house in Tahoe and incorporate arguably the most famous 4x4 trail in the world. They agreed. 142 miles, 2 days. And so, the first annual Cal-Poly alumni dual sport overnight extreme enduro "are we really riding the Rubicon" camping trip was a go. Pictures to follow, with a video at the end. The plan...? Leave North Lake Tahoe and head Northwest towards Donner pass through the old train tunnels. From the top of Donner Pass we headed into Soda Springs for some fuel before heading south towards the Cedars and the very challenging Tevis Cup Trail, a winding single track trail down to French Meadows Reservoir. Drought Relief This guy is an inmate sooo maybe he can chime in and explain what's going on here. After passing French Meadows and Hell Hole Reservoirs we continued on to Uncle Toms Cabin for a quick refreshment. Next, we entered The Rubicon Trail via the Loon Lake damn spillway. We camped at Ellis Creek, 2 miles into the trail. Early the next morning we started the daunting task of completing the rest of the Rubicon in one day. We stopped at Buck Island lake for a quick bite and a swim.
