Where to park truck and trailer on Tahoe side of Rubicon?

Question for those who have been up towards the Tahoe side of the Rubicon. Looking to take the sleds up there next weekend and judging by how much snow there is now, there should be plenty next weekend. My question is; is there a place to park a truck and 26 ft trailer for the day while I ride from Tahoe to loon and back? I know the Tahoe side of the trail dumps into a neighborhood and I can't imagine there would be much parking. If not, is there another spot to stage the sleds to get me on the trail?

How do you like riding through rocks and streams? I would imagine the trail is clear past observation and through the springs. On the way there, there are several tank traps, water crossings and rapidly thinning snow bridges over others.

In regards to parking, hopefully someone more local can provide more insight.

its my understanding there is enough snow up there. and between Tahoe and observation is always the last stretch of the trail to melt off.

It isn't my understanding, it's my experience, I rode it on Saturday on my tracked ATV.

Don't get me wrong, there is tons of snow in general. Just many hazards as well!

The pictures posted are what it's like between OP and Tahoe. Expect it. Plan for it or just don't go right now. As for snowmachines in some places there are no easy ways around these type of obstacles. Bring a shovel even for a snowmachine!!! If using 4X4s Bring shovels winches/ Straps and lot's of healthy guys to help out! It could take all day to go 500' with a 4x4 in bad conditions.
