Kick A** Hill, with Training Hill warmup - Advanced

  • Cheryl (530)[masked]

    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.

    Graydon, I won't be there this evening. Lee and Ron can't make it either. I don't know about Alan. So you get to choose the route! Have fun and see you next week.

      Thanks for the heads-up Cheryl, Lee and Kathy. Since all my favorite people are out tonight, I'm going to stay in the Davis area and hike Stebbins Canyon instead tonight to save a drive in traffic. Have a great week everyone and see you next time

      Enjoy your visit with your brother. How fun. I'm thinking we'll do both Kick Ass and Boot Buster next week.

    Just an FYI - I cannot attend this hike, so you guys can decide which hill(s) you want to do, add a dip in the river, whatever. I'll leave the meeting place at Training Hill, but if anyone wants to change it, feel free. I will see you guys on the 31st. Have fun!
