The elevation profile for the 376 miles from Hoover to the Clemson University campus. Note that the very first tiny climb is the 700 foot climb up to the top of Vestavia Dr. The next small humps are the Hwy 25 climbs including the steep side of Vandiver. Then the next climb is up Mount Cheaha. Then the next major climb is Woody’s Gap, followed by the small Wolfpen Gap climb from the high valley between Woody’s and Wolfpen. Then you have Brasstown Bald, followed by a somewhat significant climb on US-76 back up to the Appalachian Trail followed by lots of steep smaller climbs all the way from there to the final drop-off from Stumphouse mountain outside of Walhalla. All the hills between there and Clemson don’t even show up at this scale.
