Ride Information - Hawk
Hawk (Century - 105 miles)
Total Elevation Gain: 9600 Feet
Minimum Elevation: 2310 ft.
Maximum Elevation: 6129 ft.
A true century that follows the Panther, then traverses the back roads of the towns of Clyde and Canton. A gradual ascent past Sunburst Trout Farm and Lake Logan leads to a soaring climb to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Riders will then enjoy 32 breathtaking miles of long range mountain views on the Parkway before an equally exhilarating descent to Lake Junaluska.
This is a very difficult 105 mile ride with ~10,000 feet of climbing, steep inclines and very fast descents. This is an advanced ride for strong climbers and not a beginner or first time century route.
