This road connects Hoyt Road to Liberty Hill Road in Gilford. If you start at Hoyt Road, you will have the pleasure of 1.4 miles of grueling, steep uphills. How steep is it? Last time I road up, on the steepest section near the top I was going so slow I could’ve walked faster, and a pickup truck that was driving up the hill wasn’t doing much better.

The good news is that once you reach the top, it’s all downhills – and the views are terrific of the Big Lake, Mount Washington, etc.
