This is a temporary replacement for the weekly Kick Ass Hill and Boot Buster Hill hikes.
We will hike the streets of Auburn, through various neighborhoods, seeking out the steepest hills we can find. We will hike at a moderately fast pace to keep up our conditioning.
I estimate this to be a minimum of 6 miles - and depending on routes, possibly 7-8. By hiking at a fast pace, we should complete this hike in 2-2.5 hours.
Please bring a headlamp or flashlight, water, and good walking shoes - and a great sense of humor is always appreciated. :)
MEETUP LOCATION IS RAILHEAD PARK IN AUBURN. From Sacramento/Roseville, travel east on I-80. Take the Maple St. exit. Stay straight on Maple Street, which turns into Auburn/Folsom Rd. at the first stoplight (Lincoln Way). Go through two more stoplights (High St./Sacramento St. and Racetrack), then turn left at the third stoplight, which is Pacific Ave. Continue straight on Pacific until you see the parking lot for Railhead Park on your left. There are restrooms and a drinking fountain available at this park.
It is not clear if this park closes at dusk (as the sign says), and since there is a gate that can be locked, it has been suggested that we park outside of the park, along the street, just to be sure our cars aren't stuck in there.
