“After climbing half of Training Hill, this merciful loop returns via Pig Farm Trail.”— Justin Johnsen
From the Auburn confluence area, follow an uphill trail left, and soon runners will take a right, at the two signs marking the way clearly to Training Hill Trail. Power up 750 feet of elevation gain, keeping an eye on the bridge up the canyon of the North Fork of the American River, until you surpassed it in height. Here, watch the left side of the trail for the well marked Pig Farm Trail sign.
This trail ends in a T-intersection into the Western States Trail, with Cool indicated to the right, and Auburn to the left. Return via the Auburn sign. This final bit of the trail is fully exposed to traffic noise from the Golden Highway route 49.
