INTRO

"The south side of massive Roan Mountain in the northwest corner of North Carolina is a solid and difficult climb up to high altitude (for the eastern United States).  Somewhat isolated, it carries a fairly steady grade and good scenery results in a pleasant ride.  More shallow down low, just over a mile into the climb the grade increases and stays increased for much of the remainder of the hill.  More open through its bottom section you will ride through trees over much of its 2nd half.  The grade eases in the last half mile before scenic Carvers Gap with hiking possibilities (the Appalachian Trail crosses here)..." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 110.)
