Description: I will be recovering from two back-to-back events so this will be a very easy short hike to downtown Auburn. We can purchase a refreshment from local eateries there at Central Square, sit around the fire pit and just talk.
Expectations: Beginners are welcome.
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 775-315-0710. 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.
