This Huckleberry Mountain (elevation 6320+ feet) is located approximately 5 miles northeast of Snoqualmie Pass in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Huckleberry is situated on the spine of the Cascade range one mile west of Chikamin Peak. The Pacific Crest Trail traverses the south slope of Huckleberry Mountain high above Joe Lake (elevation 4624 feet). Huckleberry sits at the headwaters of Gold Creek and can be seen by car where the Gold Creek valley opens up at Interstate 90. Climbing Huckleberry involves a long hike along the Pacific Crest Trail, followed by exposed Class 4 scrambling to reach the summit. Rope is needed to rappel from the summit, and steep ice on the PCT will limit the climbing season to late summer.
Prominence: 720 feet
