The trail up Huckleberry Mountain is a grind, but as with so many other hikes to high places on the Suiattle River Road, your efforts will be rewarded with spectacular views.

From the trailhead, the climb starts right off, heading steeply up the mountain, switchbacking steadily. Trailside distractions include small cascading waterfalls and lush greenery. 

Four miles into your hike, pass a campsite with a  nearby stream.

The trail passes through thick timber signature of the area, so you won't get a lot of views along the way. But once you reach the top, the vistas are spectacular. On a clear day, you'll spot Glacier Peak, Mount Baker, Three Fingers, Mount Pugh, and Whitehorse, among many others.
