Rubicon Trail Ethics and Tread Lightly Principles

Welcome to the Marlin Crawler Round-Up

The Marlin Crawler Round-Up has become one of the largest Toyota-based 4WD events in the world. Held every fall on the world-famous Rubicon Trail, the Round-Up has developed into the premiere trail-ride sponsor for the Rubicon Trail, with more than 200 vehicles and 300 people participating each year.

Unique Customer Appreciation Experience
This event was first held in the fall of 2001 as a way for Marlin to thank his customers for their support and trust in his products. It was a simple, free event & included a BBQ lunch. After 2003, our appreciation was expanded to include trail repair and future health efforts of the Rubicon Trail. The event has seen tremendous growth ever since!

Each year participants from the Marlin Crawler Community take on the grueling 17-mile Rubicon Trail on an epic journey to the beautiful and historic Springs Campground. Part of the uniqueness and excitement of the event is how members from our large online community forum come together for the first time, putting faces to usernames and getting to see Build Projects in person. The event has attracted forum members from as far away as Florida & Hawaii, as well as international members from Canada, Japan, Denmark, Germany, and Australia! But the event isnt only for Marlin Crawler forum members and Toyota owners! Rigs of all bolt sizes are always on hand and are sure to turn heads! If your rig is Rubicon-capable, then please register today! Wed love to wheel the Con with ya!

Come join the fun!
This September we will be celebrating our 19th year of giving back to the Rock Crawling community. Whether you enter the trail from Loon Lake or from Tahoe Lake, get ready for an event to remember!

   2.5-mile Nature Hike with Marlin himself
   Awards Ceremony
   Mechanics Repair Station
           
   Horseshoe Tournament

We are planning a delicious Tri-tip dinner, Award Ceremony, a Rubicon Trail benefiting Raffle, and a multi-item Grand Prize Marlin Crawler Raffle. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Rubicon Trail. To date, $140,682 has been raised and donated by this event for the Rubicon Trail!

Pro Tip: Saturday Night Exit Strategy:
Many choose to leave and night-wheel to either Buck Island or the top of Cadillac to set-up camp for the night. This makes for a FAR more relaxing and enjoyable Sunday exit. Even if you are not in a hurry Sunday morning, it is fun to get ahead and wave rigs farewell as they pass through. If you take this night-wheel'n suggestion, plan ahead to be sober at the end of the event before getting into your truck. Night-wheeling is a lot of fun but also challenging, especially through two of the harder parts of the Rubicon (Cadillac Hill or Big Sluice). Please be well prepared and extra patient. Don't risk an unnecessary late-night injury to yourself, your truck, or the trail because you were tired and it was dark. Remember, you chose to night-wheel so respect and enjoy the extra challenges! In our opinion this is a highly fun way to add memories to the event and we strongly recommend caravaning for safety, support, and spotting. :driving:

Sunday  9/18:
5a      Early birds get out relaxed :turtle3: with ease :hattip: and with time to grab a rewarding lunch in Tahoe or Placerville. :beerchug:
8a      It's a traffic jam! :willynilly:
10a    If you are still in the springs at this time then we recommend waiting until after noon to leave. Just relax, make a nice lunch, walk your campsite for any left behind trash, and enjoy the quiet & beautiful nature around you :thumbs:
         Have a safe time exiting the trail and driving back home!

Sunday Exit Strategy:
As mentioned above, because the Springs Campground is situated between two of the more difficult sections of all Rubicon, Cadillac Hill to the north and The Big Sluice to the south, traffic backs-up quickly. To make matters worse, there are multiple narrow sections such that if one truck breaks down then no one is moving until it's fixed. If this is your first time attending a Rubicon event of this magnitude then take note: The raffle will end after dark and the bonfire will still be kindling warm long after midnight. If you have a long drive to get home Sunday night then we implore you to be back on the trail before 6am. Be responsible with your time: Partying until 2am with your alarm clock set for 5am is a recipe for disaster.

:camping: :meal: :wave:

Fingers crossed the fires don't ruin it again... I still think it should be moved to an earlier date.

Agreed, there are a lot of other events that go on during the summer that Im sure place a strain on the availability of the Springs. We can only hope that the timing is in our favor this year. I have been trying to make it for years up there.

I just signed up and am looking forward to seeing the Rubicon for the 1st time.  Wheeling my 2018 4runner with RCLT and 37s has been great but the stock 44 crawl ratio has held me back.  The TacoBox will be installed by then and so I think the rig is ready.  I'm super excited to get on the Rubicon.  I would be looking to wheel with some other vehicles.

Hey Mike I'm not sure I registered correctly.  There will be 2 of us and I'm passenger,  it didn't give me an option for 2 names. I did the co pilot pack not sure that was the right one, do I need to purchase 2? 🤔

We're all registered 🙌 But I have a question if someone could answer it since it's out 1st time out for Marlin, Do we just register the option with co pilot? Or did I need to register twice for both of us? 🤪
