You are right! We hiked 5.5 miles in 3 hrs with 670' vertical. There was plenty of water in the falls. The park has been greatly expanded. I'll try to post a photo from home.

Hidden Falls is a beautiful hike -- all downhill going in, & all uphill coming out!

We hiked from the American River confluence to Lake Clementine last week. 5.6 mi, 2hrs 45 min, and about 500' ascent/descent. This next Thursday morning, we will explore the Hidden Falls Regional Park. Our group is growing. Here we are in front of Lake Clementine.

Hugs,
Barb

Now I'm taking on hiking. The American River confluence area just south of Auburn off Rte 49 has oodles of trails. Yesterday we walked from Cool to Pilot Hill using the Knickerbocker Creek trail, and part of the Olmstead Loop. 5.5 miles, 2:48 hours, 463 feet vertical - up and down.
I wore my size 14 hiking pants, and when soaked with perspiration, they dropped off my butt! Guess I'll need to wear a belt next time.

I walked the 10K course in the Women's Fitness Festival last weekend. It was my first 10K. I came in 10th out of 13 in my age group. I'm proud of that! Plus I walked the fastest speed I've ever done. Now I need to keep on being this active!

It will -- just as soon as I get the money for the copays so I can get this bum knee replaced! And I can't wait! I hate not being able to do anything but sit around & gain weight! emoticon

I challenge all my fellow Spark Sacramentans to take a pic of themselves getting active around town! Be it on the American River Parkway, in front of the Capitol Building, or next to one of our many bridges, I would love to see all your beautiful faces next to one of our Sacramento (or greater Sacramento area) landmarks!
