9th Annual Cantina for the ConThe 501(c)3 Donation helps the Rubicon Trail Foundation meet it’s goals. Their mission: “To enhance the future health and use of the Rubicon Trail, while ensuring responsible motorized year-round trail access.” The monetary support goes towards continued monitoring of important legal issues and political involvement at the Local and Federal level. On trail, the money is used to educate trail users via mid-trail staff, supporting organized work parties and accessing private property for public enjoyment.

The Rubicon Trail Foundation is a federally recognized, non-profit organization dedicated to the future health of the Rubicon Trail. The Rubicon Trail acts as the support for Rubicon work projects and as a liaison with local government organizations. This support can range from getting approval for projects from the appropriate agencies, to feeding the volunteers, to buying the supplies needed to maintain the trail. We also fight the efforts of others to close or restrict use of the Rubicon Trail System. All funds raised help to enhance the future health of the Rubicon Trail, while ensuring responsible motorized year-round access.

Our Officers and Directors represent a wide variety of Rubicon Trail users and supports. These include trail users, land owners, county representatives, manufacturers, and Rubicon event organizers.
