We hike the trails of Lassen National
Park and Caribou Wilderness. Our maps are free to you, the
Mount Harkness loop
Aug-Oct (snow Nov-June, mosquitos July)
elevation gain: 1300'
Lassen National Park
The other hikes in the eastern half of Lassen Park lack
dramatic vistas. Not this one.
Mount Harkness gets you well
above the broad, green forest, and up to where you can 'see
forever' in all directions.
Most people hike back down
the same way they came up. But make a loop of it, for
new and different sights and sensations on the way back.
Such as the lakeside walk along Juniper Lake.
