FOTR was created by trail users for the sole purposed of keeing the Rubicon Trail open.
FOTR formed at the end of 2000 when a gate was proposed on the Tahoe side of the trail. Overnight, hundreds of folks were communicating via email about how to mitigate a winter/spring errosion problem with Placer County. FOTR was formed instantly!
"FOTR and the Foundation work hand in hand to keep the Rubicon Trail our icon of four-wheeling." Del Albright 2006
