INTRO

“The west side of Meads Mountain Road is a more moderate ascent than its east side but still carries sections of quite solid grade. The initial climbing is stair step and through a neighborhood and tree cover. Several of the ramps carry short sections of double digit grade and there is also a descent. Towards the top you find the steepest sustained climbing on the hill as the road opens a bit. The grade then eases up to the obvious top.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 135.)
