Snake Pass A57

    
One of Britain’s most challenging roads
A cache by : jlik

This has not yet been found

Snake Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1,680 feet (510 m) above the sea level, located between Manchester and Sheffield in Northern England. The pass is traversed by the A57 road.

The road over the pass is often closed in the winter months as the bending roads become icy, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. The road has superb views and the scenery is exceptional, particularly at the start of the descent into Glossop from where you can see to Manchester and beyond on a clear day. The surface of the road is asphalted and includes some steep sections. The road which passes over the high ground between the flatter moorland, as its name suggests is a winding twisty road with lots of elevation changes and adverse cambers.
