Roadway:  Two lane state highway in good condition with a double yellow center stripe and zero to very narrow shoulder.

Traffic:  Mild.

Parking:  On the right side of the road at the start of the climb (MapStreet View). 
Provisions:  None on the route.  Closest food and beverages are at the Dollar Store or gas station 3.3 miles southeast of the start of the climb (Route Map).
If you wanted to do both the East and West we would recommend starting on the Burnt Mountain West side as it has parking, with your turnaround point at Highway 136 and Burnt Mountain Road to come back and do the Burnt Mountain East climb - 21.5 miles gaining 2,875' (Map).
