Little Huckleberry Mountain

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Mt. Rainier (left) and Mt. Adams from Little Huckleberry Mountain (bobcat)

Description

On the summit of Little Huckleberry Mountain are the foundation pillars of the lookout site. A cupola style lookout was erected here in 1920. The summits of Monte Carlo and Monte Cristo are to the east, where the Trout Lake Valley is dominated by Mount Adams. Mount Rainier can be seen on the northern horizon. Walk behind some of the summit rees to see Mount Saint Helens and the spine of Indian Heaven.

You can explore the summit area a little more: where the trail makes a turn 15 yards before the summit, take another trail that leads down to a large cairn of a fire pit. Beyond this, a trail leads to a flat hillside campsite with a splendid view of Mount Hood. You can also make the short bushwhack to the second summit, just south of the lookout site, which is only 50 feet lower.
