Up for a midweek hike workout that's better than the gym?

We'll start out on Training Hill, then cross the confluence and then head up Kick A** Hill. These hills are a series of continuous hills that grades from 10 to 40 degrees up and each one is a climb that stretches from 30 to 70 feet in length.

As the title indicates, this hike is classified as advanced and all hikers are expected to keep up with the group's pace. Kick-a** Hill represents a challenge to most particularly if they haven't done it before. The group generally waits for everyone at the top of the hill then continue by crossing Foresthill Bridge and finish the easy trail on a loop heading down the Bridge View Trail and back to the cars by Training Hill.

Bring plenty of water, snacks, headlamp, poles if you have them and gloves to prevent slippage and most important, a happy attitude.

TRAILHEAD DIRECTIONS: Take I-80 towards Reno and exit at Elm Ave in Auburn. Turn left at the stoplight, and another left and the next stoplight, following the signs towards Cool (Hwy. 49S). After you wind down into the canyon, turn right at the confluence, right after you cross the bridge, the green gate (#150) will be on your right. Park on the right hand side of the road past the green gate. Parking here is free.

    Great group to hike with, as usual. Ended the evening with a beautiful sunset reflecting on clouds. It doesn't get any better than that!

    I felt hot and slow today. Maybe I just didn't nap long enough before hand. :-)

    I so hate to miss this but can't make it. I ran over and did 2 training hills this AM but not as much fun without the group. Have a great night and see everyone next week.

    Please note the time and location change for this hike. Due to the heat, and longer days, we've decided to start a bit later, so Kick Ass Hill will be more shaded. See you guys at 6 PM. Thanks
