Fultz Gap Gravel Climb

Brandywine, West Virginia, USA

Easy - New

Fultz Gap is a very remote gravel climb on the first ridge in West Virginia after crossing a taller ridge (10 miles earlier) that forms the border of Virginia and WVa. This climb has gained in popularity and folklore as Jeremiah Bishop has included it in his VERY tough Alpine Loop Gran Fondo. We start with a short descent along a fork of a branch of the Potomac River. Enjoy this flat because this climb kicks up in a series of ramps that will test your choice of gears and choice of lines through the sometimes bumpy and rough gravel. Your reward is a view only a few will have earned of a beautiful farm on top of the mountain and finally a brief glimpse of a steep paved descent on the other side
