Cycling Lizard Head Pass South
Ride 12.1 miles gaining 1,481’ at 2.2% average grade
Steepest ¼ mile = 8.3%
“The south side of Lizard Head is a shallow climb with great scenery. The ride is over a narrow road much of the time but there is little traffic to worry about. The climb ends over very shallow grade at the pass with great views of the surrounding mountains.” This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in Colorado, page 136.
