The most popular way to Harney Peak is from the Sylvan Lake trailhead, but a short drive to the Little Devil's Tower trailhead let's you visit both summits for the same hiking distance. There is also a new connector trail (see waypoints) that leds a meger .1 miles to an intersection with the Cathedral Spires trail allowing you to actually visit all three areas from one trailhead.
This trail comes in from the Willow Creek trailhead. It's one mile longer with an extra 1000' of elevation gain (each way) but is less traveled for obvious reasons.
This new connection to the Cathedral Spires trail leds just .1 miles to intersect the other trail just short of the trail's upper end.
Space for about a dozen cars, vault toilets available.
The old forest service fire lookout tower now serves as a destination for hikers. At 7,200 feet it is the highest peak east of the Rockies.
Intersection with trail from Iron Mountain Horse Camp.

    Not as popular as the Sylvan Lake trial, but the scenery is much better. If you're going to Harney Peak, definitely take this route.
