Climb Summary


CLIMB SUMMARY

This climb  begins at the western tip of Stevens Creek Reservoir.  The first 1.5 miles greet us with nearly double digit average grade.  Thereafter, the climb is much more comfortable and gives us some great views to the east of Mt. Hamilton, Moffett Field giant dirigible hangers, Mt. Diablo and generally the Silicon Valley.

Who would have known:   Just a few miles west of
Cupertino, CA and the Silicon Valley, we are in Wine Country!  There are four  vineyards along and clearly visible as we climb into the Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation.

Roadway surface and traffic:  The road is in fairly good shape and is 2 lanes for the first 2 miles, narrowing to 1 lane for the last 3.  There is very little traffic along the route, it ends at a dead end and is considered very safe and enjoyable.
