INTRO

The first three miles of this climb are at 4.3% average grade and we are surrounded by Joshua Trees as we climb toward the mountains. At mile three, the scenery changes as we begin to enter a canyon-like setting and the road ramps up a bit to an average of 6.2% for the next three miles to the left turn from Vista Largo Road onto N4/Big Pines Highway.
 
"This climb starts out shallow and gradually gets steeper as it heads into a drainage. At the stop sign (mile 6.1) turn left toward Wrightwood. At the intersection with Route 2 (Angeles Crest Highway) at mil 12.7 turn left and immediately take another left up to Table Mountain picnic area. This 1.2 mile finishing stretch is steeper than the previous section..." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson from The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in California, pg. 203.)

CLIMB SUMMARY

CLIMB SUMMARY

The first 3 miles of this climb are at 4.3% average grade and we are surrounded by Joshua Trees  as we climb towards the mountains.  At mile 3, the scenery changes as we begin to enter a canyon-like setting and the road ramps up a bit to an average of 6.2% for the next 3 miles to the left turn from Vista Largo Road onto N4/Big Pines Hwy.

We enter Angeles National Forest at 9.4 miles and are surrounded by alpine forest the remainder of the ride.  At mile 12.5 turn left onto Table mountain and the remaining 1.3 miles to the finish at Mt. High Ski Resort are at 7.3% average grade.  This is a remote climb along a very lightly used road, feels safe and is just a nice and enjoyable climb.  

Food and Fluids:  There are no provisions along the way and it is unlikely the ski resort cafeteria will be open when you do this climb, so bring sufficient food/water for a 27 mile round trip that includes 4,000' of climbing.  

Traffic and Roadway report:  As of October, 2014, the roadway surface was very good and, while there is no shoulder, there is very little traffic and the road felt safe.
