FLIPPIN' FRIDAY-Auburn Adventure -Down to the River and Through the Woods 6 Mile

Another Auburn Adventure strikes again.  But, you won't be disappointed, it's a flippin' good workout for those of you who haven't done it, so be prepared!

While the hill is not as hard as Training Hill, in my humble opinion, it's still a good[masked]ft of climbing on the way back out.  Needless to say, it's not a hike for the meak of mind, nor the short of breath.

So, let's meet at the green gate (see below) and head on out.

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!

    Thanks Tom for keeping me company while I too went down the Cardiac Bypass!

    • Carla

      Well, as long as all we did was go down the Cardiac Bypass and not end up with one, I'd say it was a successful hike!!! Good to see you again, Barbara. We've missed you and Marcia...

    Sorry I couldn't make it up the steep Oregon Bar trail, Carla, and had to take the easier trail around which split me off from the group.

    I am short of breath these days, and you did warn us about that.

      No worries. We knew you had taken a different route. If nothing else, it's a good way to check out other trails. Good luck on your hike this weekend. Hope to see you again soon on the trail.

    If anyone is leaving from downtown or midtown Sac I'd like to share the ride and chip in for gas.

      Steve - how about the Target on Broadway at 8:15? Across the street from the gas station. I have a white Hyundai Elantra.

    How many hours in and out? Thanks ben

    September 13, 2013

    • Carla

      Hi Ben, I would say we should be done by 12noon latest. Of course, it's always dependent upon the slowest hiker, but this crew is pretty speedy. Normally a 2-3 mile per hour pace.
