CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Big Thompson Canyon

Ride 20.4 miles gaining 2,640’ at 2% average grade.

Climb start

This is a mildly challenging bike climb out of Loveland ending in the lovely town of Estes about 20 miles shy of the ultimate climb in the area, Trail Ridge.  For this Big Canyon climb, stay left on Hwy 34 (Big Thompson Canyon Road; versus turning right onto Hwy 43 for the Trail Ridge ride which is the longest bike climb in the Continental US).

First part of the climb - entering the canyon.

Stay left on Hwy 34 at mile 7.5 (junction highways 34 and 43).

Claire's Place in Estes - sign and front of restaurant

21 miles to Estes -- Claire’s Restaurant is awesome!
