The final 0.4 miles of the climb overlap the Whitcomb Road climb.

“The east side approach up Mohawk Trail is an interesting ascent with a bit of traffic at times.  You find shallow grade as you climb alongside a creek within the drainage to begin.  Several miles in, the slope ramps up and the route gets more twisty.  Soon the grade eases again and you break out of the drainage.  A bit further up the hill you will find a descent but climbing soon resumes over moderate grade which takes you up to the obvious summit.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 74.)
