High Rock Challenge 2018

5 Ways to the Top!

Challenge yourself to climb High Rock via one of the 5 different routes to the top!

Via High Rock Road N

Coming off Youngs Road, turn onto High Rock N. Steep grade at the very bottom, this way flattens out towards the top.


Challenge: Medium

Via Glatco Lodge Road

The easiest way - take Glatco Lodge Rd and make a left on Moulstown Rd at the end. Make another left onto High Rock N for the final short but steep climb!

Challenge: Easy to Medium

Via Moulstown Rd

Approaching from the North off Route 30, take Moulstown Rd going south and prepare for a long grinding climb past Maple Grove. Just when you want it to end, make a right on High Rock and climb more!

Challenge: Medium to Hard

Via Gnatstown Road

Take Gnatstown Road starting in Bunch Creek heading west. After a mile and a half you'll come to Moulstown Road, where you'll cross and make the final climb up the back of High Rock N!

Challenge: Hard 

Via Beaver Creek to High Rock W

This is possibly the hardest way to the top - and one of the most satisfying! Take Beaver Creek off of Maple Grove and make a left onto High Rock W. There is a short steep hill immediately, then it levels off a bit - until the last mind melting 18% (via Garmin) grade in the last eighth of a mile. No shame in walking!

Challenge: Very Hard!
