Rubicon Ridge is one of three trails at Hot Springs ORV Park where you can earn a Jeep Badge of Honor. For avid off-road enthusiasts, it is on the "must do" list, as the trail consists of a myriad of challenges depending on the weather and trail conditions. You get everything from steep downhill and uphill grades, loose gravel, slick clay/dirt, larger rocks, off-camber sections, and beautiful scenery all combined on a two mile trek you won't soon forget.
Rubicon Ridge is a mix of gravel, dirt, clay, large cobble, and small to medium boulders. The terrain varies, consisting of downhill cobble, downhill clay/dirt mix, up and down sections with loose gravel, and off camber situations in washed out sharp stone. The trail is 2 miles of elevation change, dropping 320 feet into a valley in the first 0.37 miles of the trail. The next mile of the trail has uphill and downhill sections that are fairly consistent in elevation. From the 1.4 mile mark to the end of the trail, it ascends 336 feet to end up back on Main Road 5. Higher clearance than stock is recommended, especially in the first steep downhill section, which is littered with larger cobble and small boulders and has about a 20-30% downhill grade.
