“The climb of Mount Battie is a short and sharp ascent on the Maine coast.  A short stretch of moderate climbing up from Route 1 leads to flat ground and the toll booth.  Turn left just beyond and soon the grade picks up as you ride through thick woods and little traffic most days.  There are two ramps of steeper grade to negotiate, the 2nd of which contains the maximum on the hill.  Near the top the slope eases up to a small parking area with excellent views of the coast and Atlantic Ocean.” (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 67.)
