“King Road is very likely the most popular climb in the Hanover/Lebanon area that includes Dartmouth College.  Short and sweet, it leaves the small community of Etna over solid grade which quickly gets steeper.  The slope then becomes stair step as you ride towards the east through thick woods and past a few nice homes.  Near the top is the steepest ramp on the hill and the climb quickly ends just beyond at Laramie Road on the right (road turns to gravel ahead).” (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 106.)
