CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling South Hills Valley Road

Ride 2.5 miles gaining 990’ at 7.5% average grade.

Climb summary by PJAMM contributor Dan Razum.

This is a nice little climb from the valley floor up to Highway 180.  There are some steep sections but

there is also a short downhill portion in the middle where you can catch your breath, so it isn't too bad.

Start - Intersection East Kings Canyon Road and South Hills Valley Road.

There is some shade scattered throughout the climb but a lot of the road is exposed to the sun, which

can get quite hot in the summertime.  The road condition is very good, very smooth, but there isn't

much of a shoulder most of the way.  We did encounter a moderate amount of traffic but the drivers were

courteous and the ride felt safe.

Pristine road, but hot in the summer.

The climb ends at highway 180 which offers several possibilities to continue riding, either in loops with

other local roads or all the way up to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park.  The climb to the National Parks

starts about 5 miles further up highway 180.

Finish.
