INTRO

"This isolated climb heads up a narrow and somewhat twisty road towards the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. Around five miles into the climb the grade increases as you start to switchback up the hill with great views down into the valley. It ends after 14.9 miles at an unmarked top. You can continue to ride another 11.2 mostly flat miles to Burgess Junction and then go left for another 9.8 miles to reach Granite Pass but any significant climbing has ended." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 234.)

We missed this one on our cycling trip to Wyoming. If anyone has photos and a summary of the climb, we would very much appreciate the contribution to john@pjammcycling.com.

Enter the Bighorn National Forest at mile 5.5

Summary by PJAMM’s Bruce Hamilton.

This climb starts in Dayton, WY – close to Sheridan. It’s fairly isolated in central Wyoming but we were not disappointed. There are often afternoon thunderstorms in this area and we got hammered on our descent. This could be avoided by starting early. This one is not brutal by PJAMM standards but there is a long stretch of 7-8% climbing with no break. Starts in high prairie and ends in forest. Nice rock formations along the way. Beautiful descent with smooth road that would be a blast in dry weather.

Unobstructed views of the Great Plains from 9.5 miles and 6,500’

Thanks much Bruce . . and . . .
