“The east side of Meads Mountain Road is another short and very steep Catskills climb that is among the steepest in the region. Along a dark and narrow road, there are a few houses down low but traffic should always be light on this one. Steep almost all the way up, the climb ends at a parking area for a trailhead on the right on top. Due to severe grade the east side of Meads Mountain Road is a quick descent as well.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 135.)
