This trail offers a bounty of purple gold: an endless tangle of huckleberry bushes. During every visit in late summer, I slow my hiking so I can pick as many ripe berries as possible while still making some trail mileage. Of course, berries aren’t always ripe, so it’s a good thing this trail offers far more than ripe fruit. It provides stunning views of the peaks of the South Cascades, including the near-perfect cone of Mount Adams, and ample opportunity to witness wildlife.
