* Notes:

Avg. Gradient = (Overall Change in Elev. / 5280) / (Distance)

Longer hills will often include significantly steeper sections than the average overall gradient; if only one figure is given, this is the average. Italicised numbers represent estimated figures.

Determining hill starting and ending locations is subjective. This chart, however, should serve as a good guide to the climbing challenges you will find in the area.
