Description

This is a wonderful place to go for those seeking solitude. The trail is forested and somewhat rough peaking out on top of a high ridge. The ridgetop is mostly open grassland, filled with wildflowers in July. Excellent views of the Lostine Canyon and Bear Creek greet the hiker after the arduous climb. The trail follows the ridge top for several miles and then drops down to Little Storm Lake.

NW Forest Passes are not required at the Huckleberry Trailhead.

The trail should be considered rougher and steeper than average. You will cross Little Bear Creek a short distance from the trailhead, after that water is scarce, so be sure to either fill up in the creek or bring plenty with you. The trail can be faint in places and takes good route finding skills.
