Driving directions from Port Jervis
It’s just 10 miles (about a 20 minute drive) between Port Jervis and KMC NY. Take Route 97 west from Port Jervis for approximately 6 miles, through the scenic Hawk’s Nest. Crossing a small bridge, turn right onto County Road 31 (CR-31) and continue for exactly 4 miles to Sweeney Road, which is on the right side around a curve (look for the KMC NY sign on the left side of the road). If you see Pete’s Country Store and gas station, you’ve gone too far. Turn onto Sweeney Road, and KMC NY is 1/4 mile up the hill.
