pic locations: 1: High Grade Road, 2: just north(west) of summit, 3 approaching turnoff to City View Drive from south(east).
Profiled northern approach is on four lane US285, since this is the most direct. This road has a wide shoulder for the most part, and cycling on it is legal. But substituting a  route over North Turkey Creek Canyon / Deer Creek Canyon (or other) is a more pleasant ride.
