Fish Rock route


Challenge yourself to this gruelling gravel climb over the famous Fish Rock Road. The route starts in Boonville and heads west along the quiet Mountain View Road, with epic views, and ample time to get your mind ready for the challenge ahead.

After riding alongside the Pacific Ocean for a brief 10 miles, it's time to turn inward and tackle the Fish Rock Road. A steep slope upwards with only the gravel under your tires to keep you company, it's a great test of your mental and physical fortitude.

The route is 72.4 miles, with a whopping 9,670ft of elevation gain. The record is just under 4 hours. Will you be the one to beat it?

There is also a great gravel road climb and descent, to keep the terrain interesting.

This ride is not a joke. Every crazy thing you've heard about Fish Rock Road is probably true, or in some way related to something that is true.

    Low-key vibe, great location and demanding but spectacular route. Bring your climbing gears and leave race tires at home.
