Ascent Trip Report

I 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.
