For long enough the ridge and the peak of this beautifully shaped mountain were accessible only by a bushwhack from a spur that branched left off the Harvey Creek logging road a short distance after it has parted from the Magnesia Creek road. All that changed in the 1980s when Halvor Lunden created a fine route to Harvey’s southwest ridge. And the name? Like so many other coastal features it commemorates an eighteenth-century British naval officer, Capt. John Harvey, who served under Admiral Howe. Now the subordinate looks down upon his one-time commander.
