Rock Creek/Beach Dr Cyclists - What % Grade Hill is This?(6 posts)

Rock Creek/Beach Dr Cyclists - What % Grade Hill is This?Fez
May 19, 2003 2:59 PM
Right at the intersection of Beach Dr, Jones Mill Rd, and where the Beltway overpass intersects, there is a turnoff to go to Forest Glen area.

I think the road is Forsythe Ave and if you stay on Forsythe (don't go to Newcastle), there is a really short but steep hill. Anyone know what % grade that is?

I know the hill you're talking about...talk to the Park Service if they don't have the info they might be able to find it. In the past I've found them very cooperative

good luck
tell me where it is and I'll run it for youDougSloan

State/city/road between intersections and I'll run it for you in topo usa. The link to the map you posted is the entire eastern US.

Dangit, I just realized that the CD for that section of the country is at home. I'll have to do it tonight.
