“The east side of Lake Tarleton along Route 25C is a short and stout hill that carries riders west from Route 25.  You enter woods to begin over moderate grade that soon gets more challenging.  Near the end of its first mile you encounter steeper pedaling which last for over a half mile.  The slope then becomes stair step up the hill.  Near the top you find the steepest ramp on the ascent which eases as you cross under some power lines.  The end is near here and the climb soon ends as the grade flattens out.  Due to grade and routing, 25C is a pretty quick descent as well.” (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 103.)
