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).

This is not rideable by any sane person on a bike. Route is on a two lane highway with no shoulder, bad visibility and 70 mph traffic.
