Map + Directions
From Wentworth Springs Road, eight miles east of Georgetown turn north on Volcanoville Road. Go approximately one and one-half miles to the Rubicon Road. Turn right and go approximately two miles to an uphill spur road to the right. This short road ends at the trailhead. The trail winds down to a footbridge crossing Pilot Creek and continues to the Rubicon River. The footbridge crossing the Rubicon River was washed out in 1997. Until the bridge is reconstructed, access to the trail on the other side is not recommended.
