    I ride this route every couple of weeks just to get "aired-out." I'm inclined to take the left-hand turn at the little (sort of) town of Phillipsburg and go up the switchbacks to Conifer as I think it's more challenging. When you get to the Pleasant Park Grange building - also previously used as a school house, you're at the top. The owners of the building have coolers full of iced-down water and sports drink as well as some picnic tables and a Porta-John located there for us cyclists - so it's a nice place to take a break. They also have a money depository for donations - be sure to leave them something for whatever you take. It's how they pay for much of the maintenance on their building...

    After reaching the Grange, you can continue to Conifer via several routes and go on down to Deer Creek / Tiny Town - or you can cut across to Evergreen and go down Turkey Creek. Or you can just turn around and coast back down to Phillipsburg and beyond. If you elect to coast back down, most of the way is on the exposed (guardrail) side of the road, there are a few rough spots - and quite a few spots that accumulate gravel, so keep an eye out, be careful, and keep the speed down to whatever you can control...

    My first mountain climb and it was indeed challenging but well worth the effort. Guess I'll be using this to get ready for the summer climbs in the ski areas.
