“The east side of Route 4 is a short but solid overall climb east of the town of Cornwall Bridge.  An easy start soon gets more difficult as you encounter stout climbing for a time before things ease.  Soon you pass the Mohawk Ski Area on the right just before you reach a 4 way stop (Route 128 to the left).  Turn right to continue on Route 4 to find a descent and flat and then solid grade when climbing resumes.  Another descent is then found before a final stretch of climbing up to a parking area on the right for the Mohawk State Forest where the listed climb ends.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 58.)
