Cycling Lizard Head Pass from the North
Ride 11.9 miles gaining 2,055’ at 2.4% average grade (steepest ¼ mile is 7.8%).
“While not a difficult ascent, the north side of Lizard Head Pass is one of the most spectacular routes in the world. After its start within some trees you soon come to a meadow and stunning views of peaked mountains. A Descent follows back into the trees. Views soon reappear however. Never steep, the several descents knock down its average grade. The climb ends at the signed pass at over 10,000 feet.” This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in Colorado, page 136.
