Mt. Hamilton

At 4,200 feet high, Mt. Hamilton is the tallest and longest peak in the Bay Area. The current KOM on this 18-mile long climb is 1:08:21 so plan on filling up the biddons and packing a few snacks. This HC climb is a fun challenge complete with hairpin turns, steep pitches, and a couple of short descents to break up the climb. Once the suffering is complete, cyclists will be rewarded with panoramic views of the entire Bay Area and beyond. Traffic is light to nonexistent while riding by cattle and farms en route to Livermore and cyclists will quickly forget how close they are to Silicon Valley. Both Mt. Hamilton and Sierra Road have been used multiple times in the Tour of California so if you want to climb like a pro, this route is a must.
