The hillclimb season starts and ends in Weatherly, a quiet little town that has been hosting these two events since 1960. If engineers designed a public road to be a thrill ride, this is it. The hill consists of uphill straights leading into hairpin turns, one called “the Wall” that has to be seen and driven to be believed, followed by a hairpin turn, a short run to another hard right hand turn and then the “Jump” where most cars leave contact with the pavement. From this point the rest of the hill consists of a short straight leading to a long sweeping turn to the finish that tests your tires grip on the road as well as your nerve. This hill is a rush from start to finish. Click this link to watch an instructional video from the 2014 Weatherly Hillclimb.

Weatherly is located about ten miles southeast of Hazelton, PA. From Interstate 81, exit at number 141 (Greater Hazelton Chamber of Commerce Beltway) and proceed east until you reach a “T” at Route 93 (about four miles from I 81). Turn right (south) on Route 93 and proceed through the town of Beaver Meadows. At the far south end of town you will see a pond or small lake on your right at which point you will turn left and proceed about three or four miles through the woods until you reach the town of Weatherly. At the stop sign, turn left and drive over the creek and a set of railroad tracks. Turn left at the first opportunity and proceed parallel to the creek. Continue past the “Trackside Beverages” beer distributor store. Follow the street as it turns right until you see the Weatherly Fire Department on your right. During the hillclimb hours this street, beginning at the fire house, serves as the paddock area and will be closed to all but race cars. Visitors can turn left just prior to the fire house and find a parking space, then may walk on the street serving as the paddock area to reach the hillclimb.
