Huckleberries (delicious in late August and providing plenty of color in midOctober), beargrass (blooming profusely with tall white blossoms in midJuly), and views (especially of nearby Mt. Hood) are the main attractions of this enjoyable loop trip. Relative solitude is another bonus, because difficult road access keeps the crowds to a minimum. Although Cast Lake features no mountain views, the surrounding area is so beautiful you will have no complaints about the scenery.
