This Trail Open to Hikers, Bikers and Equestrian Use.

This trail climbs a long, forested ridge on the north side of Little Huckleberry Mountain. The steep grade continues for 1 mile and at approximately 4,000 feet elevation the trail enters an area with steep side slopes. The trail eventually breaks from the trees into berry fields and rock gardens, then climbs to the summit of Little Huckleberry Mountain, the former site of a fire lookout. Perched at 4,781 feet elevation, the site offers views of Mounts Hood and Adams.

You can pick out 9-mile-long Big Lava Bed to the west by the gray-green color of the forest that grows on top of it, forming a contrast with the deeper green of the adjacent forests. Goose Lake and South Prairie can be seen in the foreground. The original fire lookout was built in 1924. It was replaced by a new building in the 1930s. The lookout was destroyed in 1970.
