“The north side of the [206 South/Wilson HLW Road] ascent, Colchester Mountain Road is a solid hill mostly through thick woods and the top climb in the immediate area in the author’s opinion.  From East River Road, head south up the hill into the trees and over stout grade.  Soon the slope eases a bit and you break out of the trees.  After 0.5 miles of moderate pedaling, the steepest sustained climbing on the hill is found over double digit grade.  This challenging section eases but then quickly ramps back up to finish over double digit slope at an obvious top.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 129.)
