“Another contender for the most difficult climb in Connecticut, Skiff Mountain Road is an additional fairly short and stout test in the western part of the state.  From climb start, the road dives into the woods over gradually increasing grade.  Soon you are riding over stout grade on the dark road, including the climb maximum.  From this point the slope generally eases the further you ride to the east.  At mile 1.7, you pass Fuller Mountain Road on the left.  Keep straight here for a very short distance and the listed climb ends as the route flattens on top.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 62.)
