A day hike from Camas Creek Road to Huckleberry Mountain Lookout. This trail begins near McGee Meadows and climbs steeply up the north bank of McGee Creek through forest before emerging above the trees. The trail continues to climb until it reaches the ridgeline and then turns north, following the crest of the Apgar Mountains for 1.5 miles to the manned lookout. The slopes below the lookout were burned by a raging wildfire in 1967. The burn site has been colonized by dense stands of lodgepole pines locally known as “doghair.”
