Day Hike (2B) Training Hill Loop

  • April 27, 2013 · 8:00 AM

This hike starts at the confluence, goes up the training hill (guaranteed to get your heart rate up!), follows the Pointed Rocks trail east, crosses Hwy 49, goes around the Cool Cave quarry, descends to and returns on the Quarry Trail. Hike stats: 8 miles (round trip), elevation gain 1500’, starting elevation 600’. Bring the essentials, including water, snacks, lunch, layered clothing due to changeable weather conditions, and $$ for carpool drivers. No minors, no dogs. Rain cancels.
We will meet in the Sacramento area and carpool to the trail head. Leader will email meeting place info to RSVPs.
(Note: do not RSVP for this outing if you have disabled your Meetup email.)

    We timed it right, the hills were still green and there were flowers everywhere. We had a very strong group, they charged up the training hill in just a bit over 30 minutes. Hard to keep up with them! A fine day.

    Mike, Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. I have been on training hill before, but had never explored it this way. Sorry that two of us had to leave early because of an appointment.
    See you next time!

    Did not rec. location email. See my note.

    Just realized this was one of the hikes where the location has to be emailed. I didn't receive the email with the location. When I signed in to Meetup just now, it gave me a message that my email address was incorrect or was offline since April 15. Neither of those things were true. Logged in again and Meetup was fine. Guess it was just missing me (???). I'm guessing that's why I didn't receive the email.

    The location of the meeting point and the hike does not show on my email. How can I find out the location?

    Since Jeanine is cancelling , may be there will be an option to take my friend?

    I'll meet you at the trailhead as I am coming from el dorado hills - if anybody wants to join me - we can meet somewhere in Folsom. Also, What time are we starting the hike & what time approximately - we finish ? Can I take a friend with me?

    April 26, 2013

    • Mike R

      Varya, this hike is full, so no friends, please. See my email for more.

    "just south of the bridge where Hwy 49 crosses the river at the confluence" awesome. Thanks!

    April 26, 2013

  • Steve B

    Or, well, I'm just not sure which hill is "training hill" or maybe that's the name of the trail?

    April 26, 2013

  • Steve B

    Mike you said I can "meet at the trailhead at 8:30" but this just mentions "the confluence". Which confluence trailhead? Thanks

    April 26, 2013

  • Tina

    Where is everyone meeting for this hike?

    • Erik

      Christine, I think you should have received an email of hike instructions which included the meetup location when you were taken off the waiting list. Erik

      April 25, 2013

    • Mike R

      Christine, I sent you the email again, just in case.

      April 26, 2013

  • Steve B

    Will meet at the trailhead, so please let know exactly where trailhead and when. Thanks

    April 25, 2013

  • Erik

    Is anyone coming from Midtown who would be willing to carpool to and from the meetup location (but not necessarily the trail head)? I don't have a car and am hoping to hitch a ride. I could meet wherever is convenient in Midtown (for example, 11th and P). I would be happy to cover all of the gas costs. Thanks, Erik

    I have other commitments - sorry......

    April 23, 2013

  • Tina

    why do I always hear about these hikes after they are already full?

    April 22, 2013

  • Sandy

    Coming from Placerville, so will meet you at trailhead. What time do you expect to be there?
