Glacier Lodge Road

Big Pine, California, USA

Mountain - New

Glacier Lodge Road is another of the multiple and difficult Owens Valley climbs in eastern California. This one begins in Big Pine, California and leads up the spectacular eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It carries a steep and fairly steady grade almost all the way up to a scenic alpine setting.. A stout start soon eases and then a cattle guard just under two miles in announces solid grade for the majority of the remainder of the climb. A big switchback approximately 3 miles in will get your attention as it produces steeper climbing with views in places. Toward the top the grade finally eases and some trees begin to appear within the final segment.
