"A day hike from Camas Creek Road to Huckleberry Mountain Lookout, 6.0 miles (9.6 km) one- way. 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.”"

"This popular route to the historic Huckleberry Mountain Lookout climbs gently through a lodgepole pine and hemlock forest thick with shade-loving wildflowers. Ultimately, timber gives way to alpine meadows, where the lookout guard watches for lightning strikes among the patchwork of thick timber and burned areas from past decades’ wildfires."
