Cycling Mt. Mansfield (one day per year)
Ride 4.2 miles gaining 2,511’ at 11.5% average grade.
Mt. Mansfield is the highest point in Vermont (4,395’) and is located in the Green Mountains subrange of the Appalachian Mountains. The road is fully within Mount Mansfield State Forest (44,444 acres established 2002).
This is an unbelievably scenic and challenging climb. The two drawbacks to cycling Mt. Mansfield are (a) it is open only ince day per year for an annual bike race to the top - otherwise, no bikes, and (b) it is gravel. The gravel is the lesser of the 2 drawbacks - at least you can ride on the gravel.
The road is through Stowe Mountain Resort, Vermont.
