It's been awhile since we've met at the Upper Stagecoach trailhead.
We'll start out there, but once we get down to the confluence, let's cross over and do the Quarry Trail to Boot Buster Hill, come back down and head up Kick Ass Hill, and return on Upper Stagecoach.
As the title indicates, this hike is classified as advanced and all hikers are expected to keep up with the group's pace. Both Boot Buster and Kick Ass Hills represent a challenge to most, particularly if they haven't done it before. The group generally waits for everyone at the top of each hill before we continue on.
Bring plenty of water, snacks, headlamp, trekking poles, if you like to use them, and gloves to prevent slippage and most important, a happy attitude.
Please note the time change to 5:30 pm.
TRAILHEAD DIRECTIONS: Take I-80 towards Reno and exit at Lincoln Way in Auburn. Turn right at the stop sign and left onto the next street, which is Russell Road. Continue approx. 3 miles on Russell Road and you will see parking spaces on the left hand side of the road, where the road bends sharply to the right. Parking here is free. There are limited spaces, but you can also park alongside the road.
