Rubicon River / 11 Pines RD.

Post by Pacifico87 » Mon May 29, 2017 7:37 pm

Wondering if anyone has been up to the Rubicon River Area, or the crossing at 11Pines Road. Curious to know conditions up to Hell Hole Res. as well.

Any fresh info. would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I had called the ranger station in Georgetown with some questions about backpacking in the Hell Hole Reservoir area, this was middle April, and she had said that all of the access roads had been damaged. Not sure if they have been fixed as of yet. Here is a tool I believe I found on a posting form this forum:

Thanks Michael,

I got off the phone with the ranger stations up there, and they both said the conditions are decent. There is a group of college kids working along the trail up the rubicon river she said. The road to Hell Hole from the west is bad, you have to go through French Meadows Reservoir then down if you are driving. We are planning on parking along Wentworth and hiking up the river to Hell Hole. I will let everyone know how it is when we get back!
