Ascent of Harvey Mountain on 2015-04-25
|Date:||Saturday, April 25, 2015|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-Massachusetts/New York|
| Elevation:||2057 ft / 626 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI parked on the New York side on East Hill Road. As you turn off of Route 22 onto East Hill Road, you will see a parking area and trailhead kiosk on the right after a short distance. A road heads southeast from the kiosk area -- follow that road for fifty feet at the most, and on the left you will see the start of the trail up Harvey Mountain, marked with a sign.
The trail is blazed by the state of New York with blue plastic circles for about a quarter-mile until it intersects a different trail, blazed with yellow plastic circles. Turn right onto that trail and continue to the summit. I ran up from parking, reaching the NY/MA concrete border marker at the summit in 19 minutes. There is a meadow just below the summit on the west side with great views.
