Auburn Hill Hike Revisited! *River Loop*

Join me in the foothills of Auburn for an intermediate walk up and down the MANY hills that make this the foothills! We will walk up to 6 miles in about two hours on a mix of roads, sidewalks and the Western States Trail, so wear good walking shoes or hiking boots. The route may vary each week, but it will include LOTS of hills! Bring a flashlight/headlamp in the fall and winter and bring bug spray and sunscreen in the spring and summer. Also bring one to two liters of water.

MEETUP LOCATION IS RAILHEAD PARK IN AUBURN. From Sacramento/Roseville, travel east on I-80. Take the Maple St. exit. Go straight up and through a stop sign, and then straight through a signal light. You are now on Auburn/Folsom Rd., and you just passed the historic courthouse on your right. Go through the next signal light (Auburn fairgrounds is on the left) and turn left at the next signal light at Pacific Ave. (If you come to Maidu Ave., you have gone too far.) Continue straight on Pacific until you see the parking lot for Railhead Park on your left. There are restrooms and a drinking fountain available at this park.

We will begin the walk in Auburn at 6:00pm, so plan to arrive a few minutes early, so we can leave right at 6:00. If you are running late, please call me, and we will wait a few minutes for you. My cell phone number is[masked]-0710. This is a non-smoking event. No dogs. Children who are able to walk 6 miles welcome. Rain cancels. Heat of 90 degrees or above cancels.

This hike is also posted on Auburn Adventures, Foothill Hikers and Roseville Trail-Bike-Hike-Jog-Run-Outdoor Club. If you are wait-listed here, be certain to check those other listings to confirm your spot.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
