Road to the Rubicon

Saturday, June 6, 2020 -
10:00am to 3:00pm
Rubicon Trail
Desolation Wildnerness
David Michael

UPDATE: This event is now scheduled for June 6, 2020.

This event is for Mercedes all-wheel drive SUVs only.  We’ll be driving to the legendary Rubicon trail (right up to it, but not on it) via Ice House Road, travelling on dirt roads and through streams near McKinstry Lake.  We will end up at a field bordering the Rubicon where David Michael will be barbequing up burgers and will serve up some ice cold beverages (with social distancing in place).  It’s absolutely beautiful.  It’s a rocky, dirt road, so be ready for some scrapes on your rocker panels or worse, but it’s a great way to enjoy the full functionality of your Mercedes-Benz SUV.  My ML430 made it through unscathed, but no guarantees, so if you have a pavement princess you may want to think long and hard about joining this adventure.

While it looks like snow won’t be an issue this year, this event is weather dependent.  We will plan on meeting at Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills, right off Highway 50, and then caravanning up the mountain.
