Climb Summary


4 mile mark.JPG

Cycling Hwy 153 Utah - this bike climb is in the dead center of the state.

Ride 13.4 miles gaining 3,930’ to elevation 9,794 at 5.4% average grade.

This climb is situated in the center of Utah, 80 miles from the start of Top 100 U.S. Climbs  #14 (Guardsman Pass) and 152 miles north of #76 (Hwy 153).  The views are good  (canyon and forest) after the first couple of miles.  We were limited in our observations of  distant vistas due to rain when we made this climb on August 4, 2014.  The crux of the  climb is from miles 2-6.5 (1,875' at 7.9% average grade).

You will get a very good sense of the climb viewing our YouTube video.

Steepest ¼ miles begins at mile 4.9 (9.5%) and mile at 5.3 (8.6%)

Roadway and Traffic Report: There is moderate traffic along this route (minimal during the second half of the climb) and the roadway surface was very good as of August, 2014.
