Climb Summary

“One of the most scenic climbs in the Northeast, the south side of Evans Notch, located near the New Hampshire border, is also very isolated.  The road is quite narrow and dark in places as it carries you up to the notch through a tunnel of trees and with little traffic most days.  A fairly shallow start, the grade soon ramps up before you encounter a stretch of flat riding.  Soon climbing resumes over moderate grade and the hill eventually enters deep woods and contains extended double digit grade toward the summit and can make you work for its scenic top.  The summit is obvious and there are hiking possibilities at the notch as well.” (This is a quote presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 65.)
