Highlight: Rubicon Ridge D1 - Hot Springs ORV Park
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.
