The Jays Professional Review and Guide
"It’s the only trail in the Jay Mountain Wilderness, and it traverses about 1.5 miles of open ridgeline, one of the longest stretches of open rock in the Adirondacks. Jay Mountain is really two peaks, east and west, connected by Grassy Notch, the saddle between the two summits.
With its twin tops, Jay Mountain is often called simply “The Jays” by local hikers. The east peak is the higher summit, though the maintained section of trail only goes to the west summit. This hiking description covers both the climb to the west summit and then the traverse to the east summit, a 1.5-mile traverse primarily on an open ridgeline, which is easy to follow."
