Is Magnolia Road the toughest paved climb on the Front Range? There’s only one way to find out. From Boulder loop straight up to the town of Nederland, then bomb down Boulder Canyon back to town. This ride is short on miles, but long on challenge. Terrain: Magnolia is among the steepest paved climbs in Colorado. Total elevation gain for this ride is about 2,500 feet, which does not do it justice. Traffic and hazards: The early part of this loop uses the Boulder Canyon bike path, so perhaps the biggest traffic hazard of the whole ride comes from other riders and pedestrians on the path, which has its share of tight, halfblind turns. Remember that pedestrians have the right-of-way on this and other “bike paths.” You will then be ascending for 2 miles on the highway itself. In general, the shoulder is wide and smooth enough for easy lane sharing with motorists. But the pavement ends about 4 miles up, and the unpaved road tends to be rough, with occasional huge washboard.
