This location has been evacuated due to the wildfire: CaldorFire 2021. 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
