University Falls

CFWS will be hosting our first OTB workout of the summer on Saturday August 6th.  We will be caravanning/carpooling to University Falls trail head for a day of hiking, swimming and any other madness we can seem to get ourselves into.

The carpool is scheduled to leave CFWS at 8AM, so plan on being at the box by 7:45 to get organized and ready to take on the hike.  Trail head location and driving directions are below:

University Falls is 30 miles (50 minutes) from Auburn. Head to Auburn on I-80, then take Hwy 49 south to the town of Cool. Go east on Hwy 193 to Georgetown. Go left onto Main St. (at the Napa store); this is Wentworth Springs Rd. Take this about 12 miles. Just after passing through the town of Quintette, find parking on the left. From here, allow 90 minutes to walk in. Walk past the bright yellow gate; 200 feet past the gate, continue straight on the fire road. Go left at the next fork (sign “12N67B”). Go right at “the bend” (look for blue arrows on the rocks). Follow this trail down and make a hairpin right onto the trail that follows the Pilot Creek water canal; continue about .5 mile. Look for the obvious side trail that descends to the left and take it. After 100 feet, go right at the first fork (look for blue paint on the tree). This descends to the falls. Dog-friendly!

Log in to Mind Body Online to let us know that you are planning on coming.  We are looking for a big turn-out.  Bring your paleo approved lunch and join us for the day.  We work out hard in the gym so we can play hard outside.  Time to play!
