CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Hwy 191 South

Ride 8.4 miles gaining 2,525’ at 5.7% average grade.

Climb summary by our good friend Bruce Hamilton (Midway, Utah).

This climb starts north of Vernal near the turnoff to go to the Red Fleet Dinosaur site. We were able to park along the side of the road at the base of the climb right where the road starts to go uphill. The highway is very lightly traveled so even though the speed limit is 65 there are very few cars coming by.

For much of the climb there is a double lane and a wide shoulder. In all this climb was more rural and quieter than we'd expected. And it was also quite scenic. The climb winds with wide switchbacks and the terrain is open and you can see the top of the ridge where you're going throughout the ride.

Not a difficult climb by PJAMM standards but definitely worth riding (and combining with the Flaming Gorge climbs) if you're in this corner of Utah. Fantastic descent with wide smooth road and switchbacks so large that brakes are not needed.

Thank you Bruce!!
