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 sections are divided up by different levels of maintenance so there will be a chance for everyone to help out. Groups, clubs, or interested individuals who want to adopt a section of the Rubicon Trail can do so by contacting Vickie Sanders, below is her information. The county would like to hand the trail back to the user community. Volunteers have always been an important part of the Rubicon Trail. The county will be overseeing the program and will provide assistance, training and materials as needed. The program will be managed by Vickie Sanders, Parks Manager, County of El Dorado, Chief Administrative Office, 530-621-7538, This email address is being protected from spambots.

The county has provided the maintenance as identified in the Clean Up and Abatement Order issued by the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board in 2009.

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.
