The Rubicon Trail, California
Lodging / Helicopter / Meals*
Headquartered in beautiful Lake Tahoe, California (elevation 6,225 ft.), the Rubicon Trail Experience takes you on a journey through some of the most challenging off-road terrain in the world. Leading your group will be off-roading icon Casey Currie himself along with an elite Trail Guide team from Jeep Jamboree USA. The group will be guaranteed plenty of personal attention and given expert driving instruction and guidance along the way. This experience is limited to six Jeep vehicles only — all vehicles must be equipped with 37” tires, skid plates, rock rails, front / rear lockers and drivers MUST have prior off-roading experience.
You’ll spend three days tackling the trail by which all others are measured – the mighty Rubicon Trail. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the most challenging) the Rubicon Trail is rated a true 10. After a scenic drive from Georgetown, CA, you’ll put your Jeep 4X4 into 4LO and drive a grueling 8-miles to Rubicon Springs Base Camp. Drivers and vehicles test their capability as they inch their way slowly over large boulders and carefully navigate on the edge of sheer drop-offs.
Two nights at Rubicon Springs Base Camp ensures a well-needed rest from the day’s activities. Some participants prefer to freshen up with a warm solar shower, while others brave a dip in the historic Rubicon River. After a hearty dinner, participants share stories around the campfire before they turn in for the night in their own tents, complete with comfortable cots, air mattress, warm sleeping bag and oversized pillows. Your group will have one rest day in Rubicon Springs Base Camp enjoying the opportunity to swim, hike and connect with other Jeep community members.
Your group will have access to never before areas of the Rubicon Trail as they can only be accessed via private property and a short helicopter flight. This adventure is not for the faint of heart, if you’re concerned about living life on the edge this extremely unique adventure isn’t for you. Nothing can prepare you for the sheer thrill of the Rubicon Trail experience. There’s no off-road trail anywhere in the world that can be compared to the unprecedented challenge of the Rubicon Trail. Come join us for what will be the “Experience Of A Lifetime”.
Your Host – Casey Currie
Casey was born into a motorsports family that has been in business for over 60 years building high performance rear ends for most off-road and NASCAR style racing.
Growing up in Anaheim Hills, California he has been drawn to anything with a motor. By the age of 5 he was racing motorcycles and by the age of 16 he jumped behind the wheel of his first race truck. Currie’s off-road resume is lined with wins on motorcycles, trucks and buggies in the desert – this one is no stranger to dirt sports.
At 22, Casey became the youngest team owner in short course and Casey has made the most of it: multiple wins and podium finishes, a short course championship in 2010, a Masterpiece of Metal feature in Dirt Sports magazine, created an 8-truck team for the Monster Jam events, setting history by finishing the Baja 500 Trophy Truck Class in a straight-axle Jeep, among many other accomplishments. In 2017 he accomplished wins in three different disciplines of racing, winning the opening round of the TORC Short Course series in his Pro Lite, taking the crown of King of Portugal in his Ultra 4 Jeep, and then culminating the year by winning the Baja 1000 in the Ultra 4 Class in his Trophy Jeep.
In 2018 Currie claimed victories in the Baja 500 and Baja 1000, while taking home the 2018 Score Series Championship in the Hammers Unlimited Class. He also started his journey to compete in the toughest off-road race, Dakar. He would take his first Rally win at the Desafio Inca Rally.
In 2019 at his first Dakar he finished 4th in the UTV Class and took Rookie of Dakar. Building off of his success from Dakar Currie won Gold at the inaugural Jeep X Challenge at Winter X-Games in his first ever X-Games appearance. He would follow up with wins in the Ultra 4 Class at the Mint 400 and the UTV Class win at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge.
Following his inaugural Dakar Rally, in 2020 Casey would go on to become the first American to win Dakar, taking home the UTV Class title in only his second running of the famous race. Casey looks to further push the boundaries of off-road travel and racing.
