CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Castle Craig, Connecticut - stone castle spire atop hillside

Cycling Castle Craig, Connecticut

Photo: Scenes from the Trail

“The climb to Castle Craig may be the most challenging in the Bristol/Meriden area of Connecticut.  In thick woods for almost the entire ascent, you head east over solid grade to begin which gradually steepens up to a junction on the left and the slope eases.  Keep straight here to soon find more challenging pedaling.  Just before climb’s end you find the maximum grade on the hill which is just before a small parking area at the end of the road.  If you turn left at the junction, you have 0.4 miles of up and down pedaling to the actual Castle Craig.  Stats for this version of the hill are the identical distance at 7.1% average grade.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 63.)
