CALIFORNIA - FS Approves Rubicon Trail Route Improvements

Dear BRC members, supporters and action alert subscribers,

BlueRibbon Coalition is proud to mark our 12th year of helping the incredibly dedicated volunteers working on the Rubicon Trail to make it the dream trail we all want it to be. When  BRC helped form Friends of the Rubicon (FOTR) in 2001, it was imminently clear that world-wide interest in the famed Rubicon Trail called for long-term, local, state, and federal cooperation with volunteers to make this icon of four-wheeling the treasure it deserves to be.  Another huge step in that direction just occurred, and BRC is celebrating along with the  other partners, volunteers and trail users.
