Join us on Saturday, September 10 at 8:00am for a morning docent-led hike. Enjoy some great views from the top of Big Hill! The Preserves contain unusual rock formations, the gently flowing Coon Creek, and spectacular panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada foothills and Sacramento Valley.
DISTANCE: The hike will be approximately 4 to 5 miles, and may take 3-4 hours depending on the pace of the group and how many stops are made.
DIFFICULTY: Moderate to Strenuous with uphill and downhill travel, on uneven ground and rough terrain.
This is a wilderness outing in a natural setting: there are no restrooms, benches, or water available. Please plan ahead and bring what you will need.
We have a “leave no trace” policy – if you pack it in, please pack it out.
Sorry, NO dogs are allowed on our Preserves, unless service animals. Children under age 8 are not recommended for this hike, but please use your discretion as you know your child best.
We suggest you wear sturdy shoes, clothing appropriate for the weather conditions, (we suggest long pants), and a hat, sunscreen, and mosquito repellent.
Bring plenty of water and a brown bag lunch or snacks to enjoy along the way. Don’t forget your camera!
Participants must sign a release of liability which is available below. Please print and bring it with you.
The event begins at 8:00am in North Auburn. Directions will be automatically emailed after registration is complete (if you do not receive the directions your registration did not go through.)
