Hello all, will be moving to the Auburn area and looking hard at homes in the Foresthill area, what is the drive like down Foresthill Road to Auburn? Google maps has it at 20 minutes, but I'm guessing it could be longer as the road looks a bit curvey.
Thanks

The road isn't bad. The worst curves may make you slow down to 40 mph in a few places. You can easily drive 55 mph most of the way.

It's not a bad drive at all. Be warned though, Foresthill gets a whole lot more snow than Auburn, it is ~2000' higher, so your commute in the winter could be a lot longer than 20 minutes.

The road is curvy, but it's not 20-30mph curvy, it's more like 40+ curvy. They'll get a little snow, but just a little and it won't stick around very long. I think the town is around 3000'. If you're looking in the surrounding hills, you can be near 4000' before you know it, which changes things quite a bit. I would personally love to live out there and would jump at the chance if I worked within a reasonable commuting distance.

The only time it gets slow is if there are logging trucks blocking the road. With those turns you really dont get much of a chance to pass. They just did some road construction (fixing the road mostly) so that parts pretty much taken care of. Trucks can make it a bit frustrating though. The drive is beautiful so I am jealous. I am right in the city of Sacramento. Boring!!!

Hello! We are thinking of moving to the Foresthill area, and this commute feedback was very helpful, thanks! Are there any Sutter Health Employees that would like to share any "experience, strength and hope" for employment positions for RN"s in Auburn?
