The Utah Hill Climb is traditionally ridden as an out and back. Leaving from Santa Clara continue past the Gunlock turn off and climb to the apex. Once at the top enjoy the descent.
Steady climb with rough road
December 09, 2016
I started from Jacob Hamblin's Home parking lot. The road is like a washboard on the edge where bikes have to be. Moderate traffic but a narrow space for cycling. Not recommended for a beginner roadie. Once you pass the Shivwits-Gunlock turn off and continue up the hill, the road smooths out better. It's still narrow and much less traffic. The climb is steady 2%-6%. The headwind is stiff if it's a windy day.
