Climb Summary

Cycling Moore Hill

Ride 3.1 miles gaining 1,258’ at 7.8% average grade.

This is a peaceful climb in the Catskill Mountains.  While not exceptionally difficult, it ranks #10 on the New York Top 10 Most Difficult Bike Climbs list.

“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 grade sections will wear on you and most 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), 2nd Edition, pg. 81.)
