This is a challenging bike climb out of Jackson Falls. After a gentle, but brief, start, the road pitches up to double digits for several segments, maxing out at 12.4% for a quarter mile beginning at mil 1.6. This climb can be done in conjunction with Hurricane Mountain Road (East / West) which is only 10 miles southeast.
