Lake Tahoe Jeep Rentals for Rubicon Trail

The Rubicon Trail is the world's most famous of all tough off-road trails. It is not the toughest in the world - not even the toughest in the US, but it still takes at least two days for experienced four wheelers to drive all 12 miles of the Rubicon Trail - and there is no short cut in or out!

Rent a 4x4 and don't worry about the damages? Well, no car rental place will allow you to take a vehicle on the king of all trails. If you do anyway and damage the truck (I have not seen any first time Rubicon driver to get through without leaving an "impression" on the vehicle) the rental company will make you pay every penny of the damage (more than you'll pay for one of my trips). Did you know that the Rubicon Trail eats Jeeps for breakfast?

Here is my offer: I will hand you the keys to one of my strong four wheel drive trucks and you'll get to drive the Rubicon Trail in a small group with other adventure minded folks. I will personally assist you to master this wild trail. Dings and dents are on me. It'll be a stunning ride in a breathtaking mountain setting. I offer my events from mid June to mid September.

You don't need any special skills or previous 4x4 experience - anyone can drive the Rubicon. Make sure you bring your family. This is not an all guys adventure - it is for the entire family to enjoy. Even babies below 1 year old have been on my trips. Please don't leave your kids at home.

Driving terrain that seems almost impassable is the main focus of my events - however, it is the magnificence of the High Sierra that will make all trips surely unforgettable. Pristine mountain lakes, towering pines, rustic camping with inspiring talks around the fire will leave a long lasting impression.
