Peak 8501


The standard route for climbing Harrington Peak is via the Left Fork Georgetown Canyon Road. From US-30 in Georgetown at the LDS church in the center of town, drive east on the paved Narrowtown/Stringtown Road. Follow this road for 2.3 miles. Turn left onto [signed] Left Fork Georgetown Canyon Road. Follow this road for 5.7 miles. Turn left onto FSR-238/Harrington Peak Road. Follow this road north for 3.8 miles to the pass that separates Peak 8501 from Harrington Peak. Park here.

North Ridge, Class 2

The summit is roughly 0.7 miles south of the pass. The terrain is mostly covered by sagebrush and wildflowers and is easily traversed. The elevation gain is a bit less than 300 feet.

We rode our mountain bikes from the campground to the pass and then hiked Harrington Peak and Peak 8501 from the pass.
