CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Scenic Drive from El Paso, Texas

Ride 1.3 miles gaining 243’ at 3.5% average grade.

Climb review by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum, Campbell, CA.

This is a nice scenic road, going up to a parking area with sweeping views of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez in Mexico.  The climb starts in a residential neighborhood where Scenic Drive begins.

 The climb  isn't too long and it isn't too steep. It goes along the side of the mountain and there are good views of the city below the entire way.

The road is in good condition and it seems to be popular with locals and tourists alike.  There is  no shoulder but the cars were all slow and courteous to us.

The main reason for the road is to go to the scenic overlook area, so we didn't encounter commuter traffic, which can be more impatient and less tolerant of cyclists.  There isn't any shade along the way but in the evening hours the mountain will block the sun so this could be a nice evening ride.

At the parking area you can see the city below and the distant mountains in Mexico. This climb is really located in the city, since El Paso spreads around both sides of the mountain.  There are no provisions or restrooms along the climb, but since we are still in the city, if you need anything  it's just a short ride back down the mountain.

Thank you Dan!!
