“The west side of Streaked Mountain is a similar if a bit longer and more shallow overall ascent compared with its east side.  From the junction of Routes 117 and 19, head east over moderate grade which soon eases.  At mile 1.7 you cross a creek but with little grade change.  A short distance later the grade pops up to the most challenging on the hill.  A stair step pattern then emerges as the route goes up and down as it gains altitude.  Towards the top you find one more solid ramp through the trees up to the unmarked but obvious summit.” (This is quote presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 66.)
