“Used in the now defunct Tour DuPont (Lance Armstrong won a stage on its slopes) Mountain Lake is a difficult climb along a very scenic route. There is a lodge and cabins at the top.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (By Bike) in the Southeast, pg. 126, pg. 122)
