Historically speaking, to cross the Rubicon River meant that you had passed the point of no return. This trail was originally used by Native Americans as a trade route. In the 1800s it became the main byway from Georgetown to Lake Tahoe. The route incorporated the Wentworth Springs and Rubicon Springs Resort along its path. The Rubicon was advertised as an adventurer's route with healing resorts along the way and is arguably the world's first "off-road" adventure trail.The first official, organized off-road event in the world was established on this route in 1952 by the Jeepers Jamboree & Jeep Jamboree, Inc. In those days, the Jeepers Jamboree challenge began just outside Georgetown and ended when participants could see Lake Tahoe. Participants at this event came from around the world to experience the beautiful Sierra Nevada and the world famous Rubicon Trail. In 2017, Jeepers Jamboree & Jeep Jamboree, Inc. celebrated its 65th Anniversary.
