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. We'll head down the path that comes out on the road, near the confluence. We will cross the road and head up the Quarry Trail to Boot Buster Hill and back down. Maybe a quick dip in the river??? Then cross the road and head up Kick Ass Hill.

As the title indicates, this hike is classified as advanced and all hikers are expected to keep up with the group's pace. Kick Ass 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 1 mile and you will see parking spaces on the left hand side of the road. Parking here is free.

Total mileage is approximately 8+ miles and takes about 3.5 hours.

    It was an excellent hike;?worth the drive from San Jose to meet Cheryl and hike with this group. My wife and I will be back one day when this group hikes all three hills. Great company on this hike!

    Hi Cheryl,
    I have not hiked with your group due to my work schedule but due to my vacation I am interested in hiking with you on Wednesday. My wife and I just finished hiking Mt. Tallac, Ralston Peak, and Mt. Rose this last week. So we would like to have some fun with your group. What do we need to bring in regards to membership fees...Robert
