Hiked Dirty Harry's Peak up the old logging road/original trail on the All Trails Map. DO NOT DO THIS! (Also marked as Dirty Harrys Balcony Trail on AllTrails). - it's completely covered in downed trees, logs, rocks, boulders, berms and difficult and time-consuming to traverse, plus I believe it is supposed to be "closed". - Take the Bird House Trail Up - immediate right after the bridge over the river. It's a good trail, unlike the old logging road, and merges into the trail near Dirty Harrys Balcony. We merged on the new trail at about 2500 feet on the way up - the rest of the trail is much better - minimal snow on top - no need for micro spikes. Bugs were minimal. I'd give it a 5 star taking the Bird House Trail up and back. A good mix of Tenerife and Mailbox like trails.
