DescriptionAuburn State Recreation Area holds scattered boulders and small rocky walls tucked amid a maze of rivers, canyons and dirt tracks in the Gold Country foothills.
Check the Auburn State Recreation Area website for current general information.
The State Rec Area closes at dusk - most parking areas are self-paid Details
Most of Auburn SRA is open from 7 am to sunset. Leave early enough to be off the trails before dusk. Most parking requires self registration fees in cash envelopes (or annual state park passes), and is enthusiastically enforced. Check the Auburn State Recreation Area website at parks.ca.gov/?page_id=502 for current information. Note that the park's policy is that technical roped climbing is only permitted in the Cave Valley/Quarry area - outside the fenced private quarry at the back. Unroped climbing - aka bouldering or DWS - is allowed everywhere with a safe landing.
Getting ThereAuburn SRA is between and conveniently near the city of Auburn and the town of Cool along the Golden Chain Highway, route 49. Most people visiting here drive from interstate 80, and exit in Auburn.
This page marks the location of the Quarry Trailhead parking, which is the quickest (paid) parking lot for Cave Valley, the main roped climbing area.
