Cassidy Bridge – Going down Highway 290 towards Walhalla, there is a steep up and down, about a mile each way. The climb begins on either side after crossing Cassidy Bridge. From there it is a steep climb with an average grade of 7% and steeper pitches. This is the last major climb of Issaqueena’s Last Ride.
Whitewater Falls – This is a mostly rolling road that extends across the NC border to Whitewater Falls. It is a gradually rolling upward stretch of road with some steep sections with grades in the upper teens. There are a couple easier sections and small descents. Issaqueena’s Last Ride takes this just short of the border.
Wigington Overlook – This is a short, steep stretch of road that turns from the Whitewater Falls climb. It is less than a mile with a 7% average grade and some pitches in the upper teens. There is a rewarding view at the top. This is arguably the toughest section of Issaqueena’s Last Ride.
