Little Huckleberry Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Steep, hot, and dusty is an accurate description of this hike up the western edge of the Monte Cristo Range, but the views from the summit of Little Huckleberry Mountain are astoundingly beautiful. And don’t be fooled by the name—there is nothing little about the big, juicy huckleberries you gobble down while plodding along the ridge trail. From the trail, you’ll enjoy views east to Mount Adams, and south to Oregon’s Mount Hood.
The 9-mile long black scar of the Big Lava Bed can also be viewed to the west. The trail starts in cool forests where you’ll find the berry bushes thick and heavy with fruit, but the best picking is near the top of the trail, where more sun reaches the berries, creating sweeter, juicier delights for you and the resident birds and bears."
