CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Lost Acres Road, Connecticut

Ride 3.1 miles gaining 647’ at 3.9% average grade (4.5% climb only)

“Lost Acres Road is a popular climb quite close to the Massachusetts border in northern CT.  it begins over shallow and then more challenging grade among some houses.  The grade is rolling throughout with flats interspersed with more solid ramps.  The houses recede eventually and you ride through thick woods.  Near the summit the slope eases and the climb ends at the junction with Granville Road.  You can turn left and climb quite shallowly for several miles up to East Hartland if you wish.”  (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 53.)

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum.

Beginning of climb.

 

This climb is a little strange, it is fairly straight, not a loop, yet it starts and ends at Granville Rd. The two Granville Roads at either end of this climb are different roads which do not meet, so it isn't clear why they both have the same name. Presumably the locals have some way to tell them apart!

The climb has a couple of steeper ramps but for the most part the gradient is moderate, interspersed with a couple of short downhill sections.  The scenery is nice and traffic is light, making this a pleasant climb along a rural county road. It is a good climb if you want a decent workout but not too  intense along with country side scenery to pass the time more quickly.

The road surface is smooth throughout and although there isn't any shoulder it is wide enough for the  few cars you might encounter.  The top is unmarked but it is only a couple hundred yards from the second Granville Road, so it's hard to miss.
