Climb Summary


Climb Summary

DSC05609.JPG

This climb shares is the first 5 1/2 miles of the most difficult climb in the North Bay  Area (Mt. St. Helena).  Old Lawley Toll Road intersects with Hwy 29 just before the  Hwy pitches up for its 5 mile climb to Robert Louis Stevenson State Park (OLTR  runs roughly parallel to Hwy 29 for 3 miles until intersecting it again a little over  halfway to the summit).

Although brief, this is a very charming rural wine country climb that is quite  manageable for cyclists visiting Napa County who are interested in getting a little  climbing in during their time in this beautiful country (continue up to the top of Mt.  St. Helena for the more vigorous vacation jaunt).  

Roadway surface/Traffic:  The roadway is in moderately poor condition, but is  easily manageable and traffic is light to nil.
