Training Hill and Beyond - Intermediate

  • Feb 19, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Cheryl (530)[masked]

Since our "guest host" cannot make it this week, we'll just do Training Hill and a little extra on one of the side trails, then come back the "long way."

We'll go up Training Hill, each at our own pace. We'll wait at the top for everyone, then continue on as a group.

Please bring water, snacks, and a headlamp - and most of all, a positive attitude!

TRAILHEAD DIRECTIONS: Take I-80 towards Reno and exit at Elm Ave in Auburn. Turn left at the stoplight, and another left at the next stoplight, following the signs towards Cool (Hwy. 49S). After you wind down into the canyon, turn right at the confluence, right after you cross the bridge, the green gate (#150) will be on your right. Park on the right hand side of the road past the green gate. Parking here is free. We will meet in front of the green gate (#150).

    Another wonderful evening hike. It was nice to get back to Training Hill - we were rewarded with an awesome sunset. However, I've never had anyone use the "I left the stove on" excuse to leave the hike early! (I hope everything was OK!) We had a fun group, peppered with lively conversation. Thank you, everyone, for coming out on this gorgeous evening.

      It would be a great excuse to get out of doing Training Hill- unfortunately it was true!!

      I'm glad all was OK when you got home. Next week, do a double-check, as you aren't getting out of it two weeks in a row! :)

    Wow, Great Hike. Felt good to be back out with all of you. Thank you to the hiker that joined us for the first time.

    So bummed to have missed the hike yesterday with you guys! By running late and rushing out of the house (barefoot, hiking shoes in hand), the stove was left on. All is well, but I'm SO looking forward to next week. Can't wait to see your trip pics, Graydon and Kathy!

    A wonderful evening it was! Beautiful sunset, great conversation and a real killer hike for this first timer to Training Hill. I can hardly wait for pizza and a pint!

    Sorry guys - had to change this one, since our "guest host" Graydon is unable to attend this week :( Hopefully we can do the dinner/slide show next week???
