Spotlight: King Kong

King Kong is a beast of a road. Two miles of 13% grade allows skilled riders to reach speeds in excess of 50mph just before throwing them into full 180º switchback hairpins. This road finds itself among the highest echelon of East Coast roads, side by side with Paradise and Borderlands. Only the most skilled riders can handle a road like this.

UPDATE: As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. This April, the Home Owners Association met and shut us down. R.I.P. Kong, January – April 2015
