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 a mile and you will see parking spaces on the left side of the road. Parking here is free.

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

    Black ops for the next hike. Face paint, and red light head lamps. We have to learn the hand signals too.

      That border patrol is making their presence known more and more! But, we are a creative group :)

    Another wonderful evening hike. Perfect hiking conditions on Kick Ass Hill, no slipping and sliding. We watched the beautiful moon rise over the hills - all while keeping one step ahead of the law! Good job, everyone! And welcome to our newbies Syd and Vince - I'm glad you joined us.
