CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Eagle River - Skyline Drive

Ride 3.8 miles gaining 1,532’ at 7.8% average grade.

Toughest paved climb in the Municipality of Anchorage.

Climb summary by PJAMM’s Alaskan adventurer Bryan Robbins:

The Eagle River Town Center makes a good parking option for this ride. The climb begins across the Old Glenn Highway on Eagle River Loop Road. The route is entirely paved and the pavement is very good until the final half mile. Eagle River Loop is busy but has a wide shoulder. After a left turn onto Skyline Drive you’ll have quiet roads and steep grades all the way to the top, with maximum grades of more than 12%. Once you reach the top you’ll have a nice view to the west of Cook Inlet, Sleeping Lady Mountain, large volcanoes and, on a clear day, Denali, the highest point in North America at 20,308′ (dwarfing Mt. Whitney by nearly a mile!).
