I park at the gravel lot on Gambrill Park Rd about a quarter mile north of Coxey then descend to Harmony Rd, turn around and climb back up. It's pretty tough on one whee.

CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Coxey Brown

Ride 1.9 miles gaining 1,016’ at 10.2% average grade

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

Coxey Brown is a short road, just under 2 miles, between Harmony Road and Gambrill Park Road. But just because it is short doesn't mean it is easy.  It has some steep pitches that will keep you working hard.

The road is basically a single lane through a rural area with several houses along the way.  Although it is narrow, traffic is light and the pavement is good. Plus, there is plenty of shade in the  steep sections. We felt safe on this climb.

The climb is steep at the beginning and at the end, with a gentle section in the middle.  So this  does allow us to catch our breath a little half way through and we definitely need it for the finish.

There aren't any permanent provisions along the ride, but there was a cooler with free water at the top when we climbed, which was very much appreciated.  Apparently there are local people who are biker friendly.  We can't say how often the water is available, but hopefully it is there during the hot months.
