Auburn Hill Hike Revisited! *Down to the River*

Description: Grab your flashlight and join me in the foothills of Auburn for an intermediate walk up and down the MANY hills that make this the foothills! We will walk up to 6 miles in about two hours on a mix of trails, roads and sidewalks, so wear good hiking boots or walking shoes. The route may vary each week, but it will include LOTS of hills! Bring one to two liters of water. Also, it is mosquito season. Bring some repellant.

Expectations: Beginners are welcome. Be aware that we will be hiking down into the canyon and following a steep route back to the Railhead Park parking lot.

Trailhead Directions: RAILHEAD PARK IN AUBURN. From Sacramento/Roseville, travel east on I-80. Take the Maple St. exit. Go straight up and through a stop sign, and then straight through a signal light. You are now on Auburn/Folsom Rd., and you just passed the historic courthouse on your right. Go through the next signal light (Auburn fairgrounds is on the left) and turn left at the next signal light at Pacific Ave. (If you come to Maidu Ave., you have gone too far.) 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.

Try to arrive a few minutes early, so we can leave right at 6:00. The estimated end time is 8:00. If you are running late, please call me, and we will wait a few minutes for you. My cell phone number is[masked]-0710. This is a non-smoking event. No dogs. Children who are able to walk 6 miles welcome. Pouring rain cancels. Heat of 90 degrees or above slows the pace.

This hike is also posted on Auburn Adventures, Foothill Hikers and Roseville Trail-Bike-Hike-Jog-Run-Outdoor Club. If you are wait-listed here, be certain to check those other listings to confirm your spot.

      I am available to be picked up anytime monday. Looks like a 515pm pick up would get us there right on time.

      This is good to know. Normally this would be easy for me to swing by, but I will be in Auburn all day. Maybe one of my other friends will be available. Watch for replies.
