CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Route 4 East, Connecticut

Ride 6 miles gaining 1,042’ at 2.9% average grade (4.2% climb only)

Climb start

“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.)

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum.

Overall, this is a fairly mellow climb.  There is a steep half mile section near the end but mostly it is almost rolling terrain with gentle climb sections followed by gentle downhill sections.

The climb starts after the town of Cornwall Bridge, heading east on Rte 4. The road is is good condition with a decent shoulder but there is a fair amount of traffic.  However, the traffic was courteous and not zipping along too fast, so we didn't have any safety concerns.

After leaving Cornwall Bridge we soon arrive at the limits of the village of Cornwall. As is typical in New England, the village center is a mile or two from the sign.  We pass the intersection with Rte 125 on the left and start climbing a couple of steep ramps.  At the top of the ramps is the turnoff for the Mohawk Ski Area.

After a short downhill section we come to a big stop sign and turn right to  continue on Rte 4. Shortly after the turn we come to the steepest section of the climb.  After the steep section we pass the Mohawk State Forest and a little further on we reach the end of the climb.
