    Route Description for Big Huckleberry Mountain via PCT

    Big Huckleberry Mountain gives you a great vantage point over Mount Saint Helens and Mount Hood. This route guide uses the Pacific Crest Trail to lead you to the top, encompassing a 22.5 km hike that is moderately difficult. This trail sees very light traffic, and you might run into a thru-hiker on the way.

    This hike isn’t very scenic until the end, so we recommend putting your head down and making miles to have more time to enjoy the view from the top.

    Begin from the parking area on the forest road. Hike south past the horse camp and follow the well-maintained route along a flat section that wraps around the base of two buttes. After the second butte, begin to switchback up through the hills and alongside the ridge that leads to Big Huckleberry Mountain. Once you’re ready to head back, retrace your steps to the trailhead.
