Devils Elbow Road Bike Climb (Upper Ferntree Gully)



Devil's Elbows, also known as the Devilís Broken Clavicle is a challenging climb up Mt Dandenong starting at Upper Ferntree Gully adjacent to the 1000 Steps car park. It is one of the signature climbs in the Dandenong Ranges. It includes two sharp hairpins as it snakes its way through the Dandenong Ranges National Park.

The climb begins at the intersection of Burwood Highway (C412) and the Mt. Dandenong Tourist Road (C415) in Upper Ferntree Gully and ends at the highest point on One Tree Hill Road. This crest of the hill is about 100m after the 60km/h signs and is designated by a fire hydrant on the left-hand side of the road.

The gradient reaches 10% on the left hand hairpin at around 1.4 km. Continue on Mt Dandenong Tourist Road until you reach Churchill Drive at the 2.6 km mark, then continue until you reach the second hairpin or 'Devil's Elbow' then take the right onto One Tree Hill Road. The final 1.4 km provides flatter cycling.

A summary of the climb is:

Length: 5.5 km
Average Gradient: 5.7%
Total Ascent: 377m
Climb Category: 3
Start: Corner Burwood Hwy and Mt Dandenong Tourist Road, Upper Ferntree Gully
