Does anyone know the alititude change from Hazel bridge to Beals point?

Hello everyone I ride from Hazel ave in Gold River to Folsom on the american river bike trail. I was wondering if anyone here has any idea how I can figure out how many feet I climbed from hazel to Beals Point? I dont have an altimeter or gps by the way.
Thanks for all your help in advance.

According to Google Earth, the fish hatchery is at 108' elevation, and the parking lot at Beals point is at 469'. The net gain is 361'.

If you map out your route on bikely.com you can see the elevation profile.

Edit: Or just wait 2 more minutes and someone will post the actual numbers.

You're right. It's barely a climb. Seems to be much more than it is. Stay in high gear and attack it.
