INTRO

"The east side of Route 16 in south central Pennsylvania is a pleasant and steady grade ascent through gentle turns.  It carries a bit of traffic at times but not enough to ruin a ride.  The route is along a fairly wide road and takes you through woods with a few views in places.  Near the top the grade eases and the summit is unmarked but obvious.  It is a quick and fun descent as well." (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 97.)

CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Route 16 East

Ride 3.2 miles gaining 1,181’ at 6.9% average grade.

This is a challenging climb on a state highway with  some sections reaching double digits.  

Climb start.

The climb begins just a few miles northwest of the very charming town of Mercersburg.  We highly recommend One North Coffee in Mercersburg.
