Cycling Rist Canyon West
Ride 6.5 miles gaining 2,073’ at 5.6% average grade.
This is a very pleasant bike climb with a couple quite challenging segments - The last mile of the climb averages 11.5% and there is a quarter mile stretch beginning about mile 1.8 at 13%.
While the western approach to Rist Canyon has its moments, it is less difficult than the eastern approach.
