Training Hill Warm-up - with Kick A** OR Boot Buster Add-on - ADVANCED

Cheryl Z. [masked]

We'll meet at the green gate (#150), that leads to Training Hill.

We'll do Training Hill first - straight up and back down. Then after that one we'll decide which other hill we want to do - either Kick A**, or Boot Buster Hill. 

If you are new to Boot Buster Hill, and/or Kick A**, please refer to previous Wednesday hikes for detailed descriptions. Both are rather strenuous and gloves are recommended.

Please bring plenty of water, snacks, and a headlamp or flashlight. Gloves are recommended, and trekking poles are optional.

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.

    Everyone was a "no show" from my hike from Russell. As a group leader my hike moves slow so that I observe others when they pass me.

      UGH - those "no shows" - what is one to do?! :)

    Huh? Well I do declare I showed up for the hike at the wrong place. Still enjoyed my stroll to Training hill and back getting off the trail at 8:00. Sorry about not meeting everyone at the correct place. I know you had fun. I had no laughs but was able to walk slowwww.

      Has anyone seen my boyfriend?

      I think he monitors the RSVP list (on his smartphone made from aluminum cans), and if you don't attend he doesn't bother coming out :)

    Thanks Cheryl for organizing. I was lucky in that I got to see a bear cross the trail down at the bottom of Pigfarm. Not fast enough to get a picture.

    • Dave W.

      Yes, but I did a lot of looking back over my shoulder

      August 29, 2013

    • Cheryl Z

      I don't blame you - I'd be looking, too!

      We were at the posted location - Training Hill - at 5:30 and started hiking around 5:35ish. Sorry you missed us at the starting point, but it sounds like you had a nice hike anyway.

    It's 4:30pm and I'm in Auburn. Skies look clear and blue and the air smells fresh. No visible signs of smoke. Not very scientific I know, but it seems to be fine up here.

    • Marla L

      The air quality index is now 42 (good) so your report is probably more scientific than you think. Too late for me but in the future I will wait until later in the day to decide. Have fun everyone.

  • Cheryl Z

    I'm in auburn now and it is all clear. Good hiking weather!

    What kind of gloves are suggested?

    August 28, 2013

    • Cheryl Z

      Just lightweight gardening gloves work fine.

      August 28, 2013

  • Marla L

    Well I think I better skip-I have asthma and reactive airway disease so probably shouldn't be breathing the air. Too bad. That is a great hike and I hate to miss it. Have fun. Hopefully I will see everyone next week.

    August 28, 2013

    • Cheryl Z

      Oh, I understand. See you next time.

      August 28, 2013

  • Lee C.

    FYI: Current air quality is at 153 (unhealthy). Rim fire smoke is blowing into the foothills East of Sacramento. Hope it gets better by tonight. Just a heads up.
