Hwy 3

Hwy 3 closes the loop between Western side of Parks Creek Summit Rd and Gazelle Callahan Rd. It's an 18 km ride over the ridge with an 8% from either side gaining 650 from the South and 700 m from the North.

Generally I found Hwy 3 a good road to ride on: light traffic and a decent shoulder for the most part. But be aware, when you take Hwy 3 South, unfortunately, there's no paved (see No Rides Section) road to get you back to the Mt Shasta area.
