-4. Coney Summit
I could just put the numbers 13,271′ in this space and leave it at that but there’s more than just the altitude that makes Coney Summit such a hard HAB. Like Blackhawk Pass, if you know where you’re headed, you can see the summit from miles away. It takes forever to get there too.
Just hiking it is hard enough, I know I’ve done it. But add a bike to the super narrow tread and the pushing gets even harder. You have two options. Walk in the trail, thus pushing your bike over bumpy ground or walk over the bumpy ground while pushing your bike on the smoother trail. Both have their pros and cons. You WILL kick a pedal or two on this beast.
