INTRO

Meyers Grade is a very steep climb beginning on the rugged Sonoma Coast, just north of Jenner, CA. The first half of this climb offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean to the west which gives way to a crushing three-quarter mile 13.1% average grade (miles 0.75 to 1.5). This road is known for being one of the most fun, fast and beautiful descents in Sonoma County. Located between Fort Ross, King Ridge, and Sea View Roads, it is typically used as a downhill connector to the next big climb. If descending make sure to check the road and plan for some off camber sections. 
8.8% average grade with 0 descent.  30% of the climb is at 0-5%, 23% is at 5-10%, 34% is at 10-15%, and 13% of this climb is at 15-20% grade. The steepest quarter-mile is 15.3%.
