East Grade Rd to Palomares Mtn (S7)

There are two roads leading up to Palomares Mountain, S7 from the East and S6 from the South. The East Grade Rd is the less steeper climb of the two: you gain 800 m over 18.75 km which is just over 4%. There are mile markers every 1/5 of a mile along the road to keep you on track. There must be beautiful views, but when I was there visibility was less than 100 m.

S7 continues beyond the intersection and eventually turns into Nate Harrison Grade a dirt road which leads down to Hwy 76.
