Document Description
The portion of the Rubicon Trail related to the proposed acquisition project is located in El Dorado County along the historic segment of the Revised Statute R.S. 2477 Trail (Trail) that extends from Wentworth Springs Campground to El Dorado/Placer County line with the terminus of the Trail at Lake Tahoe. In order to comply with the Cleanup and Abatement Order (CAO) (R5-2009-0030) issued by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) Central Valley Region to the County and USFS in 2009, the County has been working with the USFS and other private land owners to define the R.S. 2477 Trail alignment. Recently the County submitted an easement application with preliminary Trail map and legal description to the USFS for an easement along the Rubicon Trail, which traverses over El Dorado National Forest. The County is also in the process of working with private property owners to obtain a Trail easement on their respective private lands. The easement documentation will document the Trail location the County will maintain and identify the rights and roles and responsibilities of each party. The ultimate purpose of the easement is for repair, maintenance, and minor alteration of an existing roadway.
