You want lonely? You got it on the Huckleberry Mountain Trail. But there’s a price to pay in vertical gain, 5800 feet worth if you want to go all the way to the old lookout site.
Settle instead for a 5483-foot knoll, saving yourself 1200 feet and 2 very difficult miles. The views are just as grand from this locale, encompassing the deep, dark emerald valleys and countless craggy, snow-capped peaks and ridges of the Glacier Peak Wilderness, one of the wildest corners in the Lower 48.
