Climb Summary


Cycling Stunt Road from Mulholland Highway - bike parked on roadside overlooking panoramic views of Santa Monica Mountains

Cycling Stunt Road from Mulholland Highway

Santa Monica Mountains, California

Ride 3.8 miles gaining 1,323’ at 6.6% average grade.

Stunt Road is one of the best climbs in the Santa Monica Mountains not starting on Pacific Coast Highway.  This is a challenging, fun and scenic climb with mild traffic.  We also consider Stunt Road, along with the high point on Yerba Buena 20 miles west, to be one of the finish hubs in the Santa Monica Mountains.
