Reddish Knob Climb

Brandywine, West Virginia, USA

Hilly

Reddish Knob is the high point of the border between VA and WVa (4400 feet). The top has a complete 360 degree panorama view of both states. The ride starts in the 1 stop sign town of Sugar Grove giving you a view of the mountain and a gentle 2k descent into the start of the climb. Part 1 is about 3.0 miles of mostly 5-7% with a short 1k descent in the middle. Part 2 is the toughest stretch - about 3.5 miles of 8.5% (with steeper pitches). Watch out for the skateboarding crew filming a descent on this part! Part 3 starts with 1k of flat on the top of the crest between the states before turning right on a stair step 2.3 mile one lane road along the top of the ridge. Enjoy the expansive views at the top!
