Anybody know or care to guess at the grade on Jackson Hill in Shelby forest? That's the one that goes down toward the flat that leads to the boat landing. I'm want to dial in my gear cluster for the 3 state and I'm curious how it stacks up against what I hear is the killer finale up Lookout Mt. Thanks for the input.

jackson hill/robinson hill (campfire rd)

Counting Jackson at 1.5 includes almost the whole road from where one takes the right-hand bend coming from the river. The "meat" of the hill is about .55 and is steeper than 5% grade average. Campfire road is the one...deadly steep....

Thanks!

I was really nervous that the steep part of Campground Hill would be something like 10%. I feel a little better about my struggles now. Happy Trails!
