The most enjoyable way to do the Rubicon is to plan on multiple days and camp out on the trail. Some people start at Georgetown and spend the first night near Spider Lake and the second near Rubicon Springs. Others start at Loon Lake and only camp one night. You can camp at Rubicon Springs, but reservations are required, and it’s packed on popular weekends. There are a few camping areas just beyond the Springs.
