From Vancouver, east 70 miles on Highway 14 to Highway 141. Turn north and drive 22 miles to Trout Lake. Continue north on Highway 141 as it becomes Forest Service Road 24 for 10 miles to Forest Service Road 66. Turn left and drive 5 miles to the trailhead on the left.
Did this hike a few years ago. Please see my pictures and review on the Washington Trails Association web page (WTA.org). This hike isn't as difficult as some have stated here. If you go, the prize is the 360 degree view from an old fire lookout. The foundation for the lookout still remains. Mt Rainier, Mt Adams, Mt Saint Helens, and Mt. Hood are all visible from this amazing hike! Plus on the way up, you have a stunning view of the Big Lava Bed and a formation referred to as the Wart. All in all, an awesome jam packed hike, but you must make it to the summit for the 360 vista prize!
little huckleberry has a very beautiful view up top and ranges from 6 miles roundtrip. caution this hike idv dry steep most of the way.
PS This hike should be rated Very Hard instead of Hard. It will kick your butt!
This is the hardest hike I think I have ever done. It is almost non-stop steep with less than 1/4 of a mile being *partially* flat. You get a huge elevation gain and may have a hard time breathing when you start getting near the top. It said on another website that this trail was 5.2 miles round trip but that is definitely not right. The info on here seems to be more accurate. Wonderful hike that is very challenging going up but even more challenging going down--it hurts your feet a lot. It's a lot of fun though and has lots of shade.
steep from the start but levels off for a bit before getting steep again. worth the hike for the view at the top.
With three different GPS units being use the average distance was around 5 1/2 miles. Amazing views at the top.
