Cadillac Mountain is located in Maine. It is 8728.5 meters long with an average gradient of 5.1% and a maximum gradient of 16%. Find similar hills.

One of the nicest climbs in the U.S. Steep enough to give you a great workout, but not so steep as to require special gears. The views from the top are spectacular. The descent is a little scary, however. The top is exposed and, being right on the Atlantic Ocean, receives intense wind gusts. I was afraid I'd be blown off the mountain or into a cliff wall at the top of the climb. In August, stop by the side of the road on the way down to eat some of tasty wild blueberries. See Cadillac Access Road for more detail on the summit road.
