INTRO

“Moore Hill Road is a pleasant Catskills ascent with a grade that will make you work for its dead end top that it shares with Glade Hill Road. A fairly variable grade that includes double digit sections will wear on you and most of the ascent is through thick woods with a somewhat isolated feel. The grade eases as you approach the obvious top. Moore Hill Road is a bit of an easier descent than very steep Glade Hill Road as well.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 140.)

Not super steep but solid overall, Moore Hill Road is a stair step hill in pleasant and shaded surroundings and a quick descent. Many climbing opportunities in this area as well.
