Rubicon Trail on Google Maps

Hey, so i was bored last night and I decided to make a map in Google Maps of the Rubicon Trail. I have always found maps of the trail to be difficult to read or of poor quality, so i hope this helps out in the regard. I used publicly available waypoints to figure out the locations of each obstacle,and after filling in the available roads on the maps program itself, I mimicked an embedded map of the trail from another site. You can export this map into a .kml file and use Google Earth to get a real good look at it all.

The Rubicon Trail

I think it turned out pretty well. Thoughts? (I'm not sure if it's available to publicly collaborate or edit - let me know!)


The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

Cool map! This will be pretty helpful to people who want to get on that trail. What's the condition of the Rubicon Trail nowadays? Can people with reasonable vehicles still run it? I had heard some people tried to dynamite the trail to make it harder or something like that.

They did some demo work on Little Sluice to make it easier for other vehicles to make it through or something... I don't know. That's the only thing I've heard about any demo work happening on the Rubicon.

I didn't realize how long it is either. Cool map, but I doubt I'll get to use it anytime soon, if at all.
