CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Hwy 44 North (Flaming Gorge)

Ride 4.1 miles gaining 1,417’ at 6.6% average grade.

Climb summary by PJAMM’s Utah cycling scout, Bruce Hamilton.

This is the most striking of the three climbs in the area of Vernal and Flaming Gorge. It's also the steepest. The climb begins at the water's edge along Hwy 44 near the Sheep Creek Interpretive Site. To the north the terrain is bare and consists of orange and brown layered rocks and cliffs. To the south it's green with grass fields and trees.

 This is a spectacular climb with views across the river and of mountains throughout. This climb is wide open with fantastic 360 degree scenery. You can see the top of the climb throughout most of the actual climb itself. Much of this ride is at 8% and it can be hot in summertime. The climb is not long but be prepared for heat and take water as there is nothing around for many miles. It's a long way from everything and quite remote but definitely worthwhile if you find yourself in this corner of Utah.

Thank you Bruce and Stacy!!
