Beautiful area with low traffic. The start of the climb is a bit steep and continues on for a while. With the correct gearing it's moderate. If you are in a 36/25, you are standing on the pedals. See a great view on your left of the Barkhamsted Reservoir. Note the rocky cliffs on your right. The route levels out a bit, but finishes with a final climb. You are in the middle of the Tunxis forest for most of the ride. And you won't see a single house for the entire ride.

CLIMB SUMMARY

(New England Nomad)

“…Morrison Hill Road also heads up the ridge under thick tree cover and over a mostly moderate grade.  Soon it becomes stair step as you gain altitude.  The road makes a right and then a left turn on the way up.  Near the top you pop out of the trees and pass the entrance to the Granville State Forest on the right and the listed climb ends soon after as the grade flattens out.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 55.)
