Upper Stagecoach to Kick A** Hill - Advanced

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.

    Another delightful evening hike. Thank you, everyone, for coming out and enjoying this beautiful fall evening. It was so nice to see some new faces on the trail, as well as the awesome regulars. Thank you, also, for welcoming "Flat Ben" and indulging my photo requests. And thanks to Diana, I now know how to use the timer on my camera. Thank you, Diana! I look forward to seeing everyone next time.

    Sorry to miss again but still a little under the weather, especially later in the day. I plan to be asleep before the hike is over. Have a great hike.
