Trail Notes

The Harris Hill Overlook near Elmira, New York is an easy 0.1-mile out-and-back trail that runs adjacent to Harris Hill Rd and features a beautiful scenic view of the Big Flats, Elmira, and Corning, NY along with the mountains across the valley.

Next to this overlook is a park where sailplanes take off, which fly directly over this trail. The organization that runs these sailplane tours can be found here.

This is one of the most popular overlooks in the Elmira/Big Flats/Corning area and so often the parking lot is filled up on weekends.

Visitors will find parking at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough for about 4 or 5 vehicles.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
