Hike or Mountain Bike the Confluence Area by the Foresthill Bridge

Perfect day to Hike or Mountain Bike Ride at the Auburn Confluence!

Since this area is a great multi-use area. I thought I would give you the option of hiking, running or mountain biking the Stagecoach trail. I plan on taking the flood trail of the Stagecoach to hike up to the top of the Foresthill Bridge from the Auburn Confluence. I don't believe the mountain bikes can go up this trail, so they can continue up the Stagecoach trail to the top of Russel Rd.

 

Distance: 2 miles Intermediate

Hike:We'll start at the Auburn Confluence and hike up Stagecoach trail. This is an intermediate hike all up hill. Not stroller friendly. After about 3/4 mile we will take the flood road to Moss Hill trail. We will finally arrive at the Foresthill Bridge. Bring your camera, because the views are amazing. Hope you and your family can make it.

Mountain Biking: The Stagecoach Trail is a fire road that is about a 15%-30% grade. Not a trail for beginners. Intermediate

Parking is limited, so carpooling is encouraged. They are now charging $10 per car. Make sure you have exact change or a check.

Directions:From I-80 at Auburn, take the Hwy 49 exit, and drive south on Hwy 49 for 2-3 miles to the where Hwy 49 forks. Continue straight for another 1/4 mile. Trail head is located on the left before the bridge. Meet by the restroom with two bathrooms. Show up early to get a spot. Make sure you pay $10 for parking, because they will ticket you!

    Yes! The trailhead is located on the left by the restrooms and trail map. Make sure you pay for parking. If you're not sure where to go you can meet us in Starbucks by the Savemart on Elm at 1:30. Call me at (916)[masked]

    My boys are at winter camp for boys scouts but I need a little excercise.

    Hi Heidi, Just wanted to confirm where we're meeting tomorrow as the directions to the trailhead were a little ambiguous, assuming it's where I'm thinking of. Is it the trailhead with the 2 port-a-potties and trailmap? If it is, as you drive down 49 into the canyon, it would be on your left, not on your right as in the description. Just want to make sure we don't miss you. I did part of this trail on Friday with my adult group - Mossy Rock up to Russel Rd and then back down Stagecoach over to Training Hill....fab views....C U 2 morrow!

    To cross the bridge or not cross the bridge, that is the question...

    February 16, 2013

  • Karen G

    Would love to join your group, and come to the hike on Monday, if possible. We know Chris & Judy through mutual friends. Let me know what we need to do to join!

    February 16, 2013

  • Jaime R.

    I would like to join you. I have a 3 year old. Would this hike be pretty difficult for him? I can also carry him in a pack some too

    Does the group do very many Saturday hikes? It seems like every time there's a hike I am interested in that also fits with the weekend I have my son, it's on the sabbath, and I don't hike on Sundays. Would love to join in on a hike, but it's been difficult to catch one that works out with our schedules, and when it does, it seems like it's on Sunday. I'll keep my eyes open for more Saturday ones.

    • Heidi

      I also do hikes on Sat too, but a lot more on Sunday. My son is also in Cub Scouts and we have go see its on Sat. It also seems that most birthday parties, wedding and baby showers are on Sat. That's why I have more Sundays free. I try to alternate the days, but I'm usually busy on Sats. Due to low rsvps, this hike might get rescheduled to Monday afternoon. I'll revise the hike if it does.

      February 15, 2013

  • Heidi

    Don't worry! I'll post this hike later in the year. It's one of my favorite hikes.

      What are you saying Jim?...

      February 14, 2013

    • Heidi

      That's why I changed it to an hour instead of the 45 minutes I told you.

      February 14, 2013

  • Jim C

    Are y'all going to be back in time for the picnic?

    February 14, 2013

    • Heidi

      Yes. It's only an hour up and 30 down. We should be done by 11:00.
