Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum, San Jose, CA.
We start in a quiet residential neighborhood with nice houses and landscaping and we end at a similar residential neighborhood at the top of the hill.
The road is in good condition. There isn't any shoulder but the traffic is just residential and people going to the park so it felt safe. The road is mostly straight, with a couple of sharp curves near the top.
We encountered several cyclists on this road, it is a popular route in the Huntsville area. And why not, the gradient is never too steep, we ride through a nice wooded area and the traffic is light. Overall, it is a pleasant ride and you can either ride hard or take it easy and enjoy nature, depending on how you are feeling.
Finish at the intersection of Fearn Street and Lookout Drive.
