Originally a Native American trail connecting the Sacramento Valley and Lake Tahoe, the Rubicon Trail was re-discovered by European immigrants in the 1840s. By the 1890s, the trail had become a road and was used to reach the Rubicon Mineral Springs Resort & Hotel. The first car into Rubicon Springs arrived in 1908, driven by a woman from Lake Tahoe. This historic drive received quite a bit of publicity from the San Francisco newspapers. More on the Rubicon 4x4 Trail

    Located at the doorstep to the Desolation Wilderness & the infamous Rubicon 4x4 Trail, Tahoma California sits on the western shoreline of Lake Tahoe at Sugar Pine Point. Towering granite peaks behind it & forests as far as your eyes can see, the scenic Sierra backdrop is something out of a fairytale.
