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

    We'll start out on on the Upper Stagecoach Trailhead, located on Russell Road, then head up Kick Ass Hill. These are a series of continuous hills with 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 coming back up Upper Stagecoach.

    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 Lincoln Way in Auburn. Turn right at the stop sign, then left at the next street, which is Russell Road. Go down Russell Road, approximately 3-4 miles and you will see parking spaces on the left hand side of the road. Parking here is free.

    Total mileage is approximately 6 miles and takes about 2 hours.

    HI Cheryl
    Hey next week the moon will be 96.6 % full on the 16th. What would think about a redo of rock quarry trail for a night of hike and dine. Dine at the top of the quarry?? I am planning to make garlic shrimp in the pan at the top. Hot out of the pan ????? This just might be fun

      Awesome idea - I've switched the hike on the calendar already.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
