“The hill beings on Music Mountain Road over solid grade generally to the north.  Soon you hit a descent before the road turns to the right and resumes uphill, gradually getting challenging.  Just less than one mile in and the slope has eased, turn right on Cream Hill Road, this road is stair step up the hill and eventually includes the maximum grade.  Soon after that the slope eases and then descends briefly.  Climbing quickly resumes over shallow grade and stately trees and some views appear.  The listed climb then ends as the road descends beyond.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 57.)
