A large parking area for the Blue Mountain Trail and the Tirrell Pond Trail is located on the east side of NY 30/28N one tenth of a mile north of the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. The GPS coordinates of the parking area is N[masked] W74 25.886.

The two mile trail to the 3759 foot summit of Blue Mountain heads east from the trailhead starting along a woods road on Finch, Pruyn and Company Inc. lands. The trail climbs 1523 feet in elevation with moderate to steep grades, ending at the fire tower. Good views are possible from the flat topped summit. This is an out and back hike of four miles. Do not expect to be alone on this very popular hike.

Blue Mountain is part of the "ADK Fire Tower Challenge".
