Who wants to hike in old clearcuts? When they are packed with huckleberries, I do! So did Parka—she quickly learned to eat the berries bearstyle, plucking the ripe fruit off the bushes with just her lips. The old clearcuts found on the lower portion of this route are full of huckleberries, and the cuts occurred so long ago that the reseeded trees are now pushing 30 or 40 feet tall in much of the clearings. And those clearings peter out quickly as you climb the ridge and enter old stands of deep, cool forest before cresting the ridge and dropping into the picturesque lake basins.
