“A fireroad climb to the ridge. This trail is not very technical and proves a good workout.”
— Lance Buck
Nasty mud after any rain.
The local test piece. 2,000 feet of climbing in 4.5 miles. Strava record is 49:53 to the top.
The shorter climb stops at the Fiske Creek trailhead. There you have 880 feet of elevation in 2.3 miles. The record here is 21 min.
The climbing is pretty sustained, but there are a couple of places where the grade slacks off just a bit, but not many!
As seen on the map, Rd. 40 extends much further west than the extent of this ride.
