CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mount Pisgah from the north.

Ride ride 14.5 miles gaining 3,800’ at 3.7% average grade.

Warning:  There are several long very dark tunnels on this route - bring head and tail lights.

John Summerson:

“Mt. Pisgah is a very scenic climb along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The grade is fairly steady and multiple (9) tunnels need to be negotiated along the way.  The first 3 are long enough that they are pitch dark so go prepared.”  Presented with authority from John Summerson’s The Complete Guide to Climbing (by bike) in the Southeast,  p. 93
