INTRO

"Historic Cumberland Gap is a gem of an ascent near the TN border in southeast KY.  An easy start leads riders under Route 25E.  Once past you enter thick and scenic woods and soon the grade eases.  After passing the road to Sugar Run (keep straight) the route turns into a classic mountain climb.  Straight stretches in this section are linked together by tight switchbacks, many of which contain double digit grade.  A final switchback leads to decreased grade and the climb finishes at a parking area." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 108.)

Not an alarmingly steep climb at any point so it’s not that hard to summit as long as you don’t just attack it. Parking is available at the top and bottom and the view is spectacular.
