Open Season

This route is all paved, and is a good season opener when conditions can be muddy off the pavement. We prefer the shortcut of going over Lee Hill instead of Old Stage, this saves 2.3 miles at the cost of an extra 110 feet of climbing. The shortcut on Hurricane Hill is also recommended. Boulder Canyon has heavy traffic, but cyclists can maintain speeds nearing that of traffic on the descent. 47 miles.
