Gradient of walkway from Mt Takao to Mt Jimba
I have been to Mt Takao (高尾山) in April, and that time, I walked till the Mt Jimba (陣馬山) with my GPS. Last night, I calculated the gradient of my trekking route.
I walked as following.
A -> B -> C -> D -> E -> F -> G -> H -> I -> J.
The gradient was calculated as the next formula.
When I walked that area, I felt the first stage A was steep angle and has long distance, so I felt it very hard. The other stage was not felt so steepy, because the distance was not so long.
I guess that this data might be one of the effective information when you walk about Mt Takao area.
I'd like to write the impression of that walking area in near future.
My trekking route
When you wanna go to Jimba-Kogen-Shita from Takao station or go to a station from Jimba-Kogen-Shita (陣馬高原下), you have to use a bus. A bus is operating by Nishi-Tokyo bus (西東京バス).
A Jimba-Kogen-Shita becomes the last bus stop of a bus service route. A bus stop at JR Takao Station is the place which has a number of No. 1 by a purple round mark in the map in the homepage (Check the next URL!).
The bus stop at the station is near a river, and is located near a FAMILYMART of this map.
Since SUICA and PASMO can be used for a bus, you need not to prepare change..
It takes about 40 minutes from station to the last bus stop.
