Fickle Hill is steep.

Fickle Hill Road is insanely steep. It departs the center of Arcata and quickly gains elevation. The road has a lot of "character" with everything from smooth to horrid road surfaces, and flat straights to steep hairpin turns.

I turned around at point "G"
24.6 miles in 1 hour 58 minutes with a 41.5 mph max.
