I-44 to US65? I've done US 65 from Branson to US 50 and I don't remember any extreme grades. Where is this 19% grade?

According to flattest route, that route has a 4% grade max.

I think that 19% grade mentioned in relation to Branson is a short stretch of hwy 376 on the west side of Branson connecting the strip area to highway 265.

my GPS has me going 65 south down to state hwy 265 for 3 miles then to 165 for a couple miles. from what you said the 19% grade will not effect my travel route?

Are you going to Table Rock? I believe there are some hills on 265/165, but been a few years since we were there. But you will not be on the steep 376. I will let someone else chime in on about 265 and 165.

Never heard of a 19% grade in the area. Location? I've drug my toy hauler on about every road going into Branson and never had any concerns with grades.

Must be on the highroad up by Silver Dollar City. If you're going to Branson proper, just stay on US65 to Main St./route 76. Where are you staying in Branson?

I drove the loop road there around Table Rock dam. I don't remember any steep grades.

Check the video link above. And check google maps street view of 376 at 265 intersection. Definitely a 19% grade sign there on 376 heading back toward town.
