CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Globe Young Highway (Hwy 288)

Ride 10.7 miles gaining 3,200’ at 5.6% average grade.

Although it was cool June day (in Arizona terms, high of 91) I wanted to start the ride in the perfect 70 degrees of sunrise. The climb is roughly a 2 hour drive from Phoenix, on the northeast side of Lake Roosevelt.

The best place to park the car is at the Diversion Dam picnic area on the north side of the salt river. From here it’s about 6 miles to the start of the climb on hilly desert roads.

Many saguaro cacti on this route

Saguaro cactus can live 200 years and weigh up to 6 tons.

Theodore Roosevelt Lake is in view behind us more than 8 miles up the climb.

The lake is formed by Theodore Roosevelt Dam dedicated in 1911

This is the largest lake located entirely within the state of Arizona.

4 Peaks.

Enter an alpine setting around mile 6.
