CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Smugglers Notch North

Ride 7.7 miles gaining 1,677’ at 4.1% average grade.

This is a nice climb out of Jeffersonville into Smugglers Notch State Park on the north side of Stowe Mountain Resort. The “notch” is the gap which separates Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak. The term “smugglers” comes from smuggling from Canada to and through Vermont to avoid President Jefferson’s Embargo Act of 1807.

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Bruce Hamilton, Midway, Utah.

The climb up Smugglers Notch from the north side starts in the small town of Jeffersonville. The early part of this climb is not steep and provides time to warm up but we rode to see a few covered bridges in the nearby town of Waterville to get warmed up. Once on the climb the grade is varied, perhaps 3-4% for the majority of the ride. Toward the summit the forest gets more dense and the grade becomes steeper. There is a very interesting narrow gap at the top with an opening to view cliff faces up above.

Thank you Stacy and Bruce!!
