Weimar Institute ~7 miles Intermediate

Nysia is leading this hike and it's her first time, so please be prepared for the unexpected!

Weimar Institute's trails are in a beautiful wooded area just past Auburn inside the Weimar Institute.

It's about 800' elevation gain with some hills.

~5 miles

Bring a packed lunch and we'll eat at the cemetary.

The trails connect, so if you get tired you can always find your way back and wait for your car group. My plan is to skirt the outside edges, definitely not all 14 miles of the available trails.

Dogs okay, but please clean up after.

Estimated time to the Weimar Institute parking area is 10:40 AM. Directions from Sacramento: 
I-80 East
EXIT towards WEST PAOLI LANE
LEFT at the end of the ramp
LEFT over bridge
RIGHT into Weimar 
20601 West Paoli Lane Weimar, CA 95736

Please pay your carpool driver ~$4.00 per hour of drive time, so approximately $6 total.

    What time do you think we will be back at the Roseville Park and Ride? I have early dinner plans with my wicked step-mother...

      I would imagine we would be home before 3... There were many criss cross trials at the park, if you need to cut out early, if it seems the hike is longer than expected, but I can't see that being the case.

    10/3 Thursday
    I drove into the Institute yesterday and it did not appear the gate office was being manned, so I suspect there is no donation request.
    I did not check out the cafeteria.

    The last time I hiked there, Nysia, the Institute wanted a donation from each person at the gate. Is this still so, and if so, how much?

    Although you say we will have lunch at the cemetary, the Institute does serve a wonderful vegetarian hot lunch which is open to the public, but the cook would have to know how many to expect if a lot of hikers wanted lunch. It was a great lunch, but we had to be there when the cafeteria opened. The lunch cost was reasonable as I remember.

    Very excited to be hosting this hike! Hope people can make it. I will have my sister (it's her birthday!) and one other friend with me. :)
