I don't remember if I've done that. I think I still have my map with everything outlined so I will look for it on there to see if I have done it or not
Rubicon ridge isn't bad at all if it's dry. There is a very steep and loose rock hill on the entrance next to baileys bolsters and if it's wet there is one steep red clay hill that can be slick. When I was there in November it was rutted pretty bad and rigs with smaller tires were dragging pretty bad.
Yes rain plays a huge role in the trail condition. You can basically bump up the level one notch! So a 3 is a 4 and a 4 is a 5 and so on.
This was the trail condition when I was there in November. It rained nonstop the whole weekend.

I don't think I've ever been there with this much water before. Even came in the floor at one point.
