A new year, means another new attempt at the goat trail and Cardiac Hill!
It's a flippin' good workout for those of you who haven't done it, but be prepared!
While it's not as hard as Training Hill, in my humble opinion, it's still a good[masked]ft of climbing on the way back out. Not for the meak of mind, nor the short of breath.
So, let's meet at the green gate (see below) and head out along the canal to the goat trail, which will take us to the river and then back up Cardiac Hill for our workout. If some of you want to do a longer loop, there are other options to add on..
Directions; From Sacramento I 80 E - Newcastle exit, go straight onto Indian Hill Rd. - left on Auburn-Folsom Rd. - right on Maidu Rd. -Meet at the second green gate on the right ASRA pay parking lot $10.00 If you don't have a pass or don't want to pay you can park for free across from the water treatment plant (PCWA), just slightly farther on the right.
The parking lot where we'll meet has a port-a-potty and a drinking fountain.
Let's meet there by 9.15 am!
Bring the usual - walking poles if needed, water, snacks and a good sense of humor!
