Auburn Lake Trails
Auburn Lake Trails ("ALT") checkpoint is
accessible from the main roadway inside the Auburn Lake Trails gated community.
The access road is close to Gate 3, but entry via that gate requires a
passcard. Non-residents must enter via Gate 1, close to the town of Cool.
After entering at Gate 1, continue on the
main roadway, American River Trail, and turn left where it T's into Sweetwater

about 1/2 mile and turn left onto Middle Mountain Ct. Continue straight and
onto the access road down to the checkpoint. There are normally signs marking
the way on event weekend.
