Syllabus
Huckleberry Creek Trail is a 10.05 mile one way hike with 4,440 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 44 miles east-southeast of Tacoma Washington. Trailhead access is via a dirt road which is typically car accessible when dry. August and July are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Overview: A lovely hike through old growth forest climbing to stunning views of Mt Rainier. The trail starts in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and follows Huckleberry Creek to the Mt Rainier NP boundary, where you pass a long-abandoned ranger cabin. Foot-logs are in place to cross most of the feeder creeks, and the trail climbs steadily to Forest Lake wilderness camp (one site only). Beyond the camp, the trail steepens and quickly gains the Sourdough Ridgeline, where you join the Sourdough Ridge Trail. AMAZING views of Mt Rainier!

Note
This is a difficult hike. Arrive fit and prepared or this could get ugly.

    To hike
    Drive east on State Highway 410 from Enumclaw 24.8 miles to FS Road #73 (signed). Turn south (right) on FS Rd 73 and follow it for 6.5 miles, staying on the main road. There are many side roads, but the main road is obvious. This is the fanciest FS road I have ever driven on - there are even mile markers! The trailhead is on the left (no sign) immediately before the road crosses Huckleberry Creek via a concrete bridge. Parking is just over the bridge on the right.
