CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Cascade Springs

Cycling 12.6 miles gaining 3,356’ at 3.9% average grade.

This is a fabulous bike climb that has a misleading average grade because of two substantial descents within it that reduce the overall gradient average.

Climb summary from PJAMM great friend and contributor Bruce Hamilton:

This road is exceptional.  It’s called Cascade Springs road and it was dirt until this September. I rode it last year on my mountain bike but when we were in Midway in September, 2020 they had just completed paving it. We had just come from CO doing spectacular rides in autumn leaves and even by those standards this road was stunning. In fact, I think the road between Ouray and Silverton is the most scenic in the USA and we’d just done it under ideal conditions and this new Cascade Springs road might be even better. Certainly up in the top few with Glacier Park, Mt Lemmon, Ouray-Silverton, etc.

It starts in Midway and goes to the Alpine Summit (the same summit as the two Alpine Summit East and Alpine Summit West) but it has two descents along the way. Starts around 5,500’ in Midway and ends at just over 8,000’ but it’s about 3,100’ of climbing as there are two 300+ foot descents as you’re going up. We rode it almost every day we were there. Not that we needed even more spectacular climbing in that area. We ended up thinking it’s the nicest ride in the country.
