“While not quite 3 true miles in length, 3 Mile Hill is a solid climb along Route 18 located very close to Interstate 93 that leads to the Cannon Ski Area.  From its unmarked start (grade change) head east over shallow grade which soon goes flat and then gradually increases.  Eventually you enter Franconia Notch State Park over solid grade and usually little traffic.  Towards the very top the slope eases and the climb ends at the parking lot for the ski area on the right.” (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 99.)
