INTRO

"An isolated climb near Grants Pass in southern Oregon, the east side of Cedar Flats Road is a steep test over a very narrow road that carries little traffic. Stout from the start, the grade eases about one half mile into the ascent. Soon very good views arrive down into the valley in places. From here the grade goes up and down as you ride through the mostly pine forest. Within one mile of the summit you find the steepest sustained grade on the hill and long views both left and right. Soon the grade eases and the climb ends at an unmarked but obvious summit. Though not as difficult, the west side of Cedar Flats is also a solid climb over a narrow road." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 208.)

CLIMB SUMMARY

Climb Summary

 A hidden jewel – no doubt about it. Tucked between and outside of both Siskiyou and Klamath National Forests, this is a secret climbing oasis that only 15 Strava members had recorded as of August, 2016 - what a waste!  The scenery along this ride is exceptional and anyone with the time and interest in a special climb should make the time to tackle this one if they live or are ever anywhere near this climb – it will not disappoint.

 At a mere  6.7 miles Cedar flat packs a punch. It starts out with a sharp pitch up to 12% and fluctuates at a healthy grade thereafter. The road is extremely quiet and peaceful with very low traffic.  The road quality is near perfect but for a couple uncharacteristic brief rough spots along the way.  The road is bordered by lush, thick foliage and forest nearly the entire climb.  While the roadway narrows to nearly one lane without a shoulder for much of its route, this is immaterial as you are effectively on a private roadway nearly all the climb, particularly the upper section.  Just Do It.
