This trail offers a steep uphill climb to beautiful meadows and easy downhill walk. Not for the faint of heart!
Training Hill is a 4.5 mile loop trail that features beautiful meadows and wildflowers, with limited views to Folsom Lake and the Auburn canyon. The trail to Training Hill branches off from the Calcutta Falls trail right before the first cement bridge over the American River. Training Hill is rated as difficult for good reason - the first mile or so is a steep uphill climb, a great workout to train for other treks! The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Keep an eye out for snakes and other wildlife in the area. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
- Water (and lots of it!)
- Bug spray
