The Foothills Community Lifestyle 

"Auburn is characterized by its rural environment, low‐density, high‐quality living and small‐town atmosphere.  Poised on the rim of the American River Canyon and serving as a prominent gateway to the Sierra Nevada mountains, the City of Auburn is undeniably at the crossroads of commerce and recreation in Northern California.  With a legacy dating to the Gold Rush era and a civic eye locked on the future, Auburn has a confident sense of place that is being shaped for the new century.   Auburn's access to open spaces, fast‐moving rivers and a network of rugged hiking and biking trails make it a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, from weekend novices to endurance athletes.
