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.

    It was a great hike. Nice to have new hikers join us on a dark cold night. It wasn't that cold. But it was fun

    Great hike, lots of fun, lovely people. Was hard to motivate after a bad work week. That hill scares me but we all blazed up it like lightening. So refreshing uplifting Thank-you Cheryl P.S. I miss Lee, hope he can join us for our next great adventure.

    I'm a 50/50 depending on how quickly I can bail out of a meeting. If I'm not there by 5:00pm, then I guess I couldn't get away.
