The hardest hill climb in the Southeast, brand new pavement, almost no traffic inside a gated community with breathtaking views across the Blue Ridge mountains

At 9.25 miles, with 3,200 feet of elevation gain, and a 5.9% average grade, maxing out at 18.5%, it is the hardest climb in the Southeast. The entire course is buttery smooth pavement on a totally closed road inside Reynolds Blue Ridge, a re-imagining of the modern mountain lifestyle with all the amenities you have dreamed about in a convenient community setting.
