Staley Road Climb from Old Forge

My second favorite forest road climb in Michaux. This climb starts at Old Forge Road with a steep 10% grade and a couple of switchbacks. The gradient settles down for the duration of the climb. At this point, if you want to make a run for the KOM, you'll want to push a big gear and pedal hard. The smooth, hard dirt base of Staley favors a light bike with a less-aggressive tread pattern.
