Huckleberry Trail

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Colville National Forest, Three Rivers Ranger District, South Huckleberry Mountain, Bangs Mountain, Sherman Creek, Canyon Creek, Lake Ellen

Last Known StatusOpen

This area offers two scenic 4x4 trails, the South Huckleberry Trail #12110 and Huckleberry Trail #12060. Both trails wind through a mixed pine tree forest and consist of mostly hard packed terrain with some rugged sections, plus several steep climbs and descents.

The South Huckleberry Trail can be accessed off Bangs Mountain Road and offers some difficult sections that consist of steep climbs and descents. At the top of the trail is a nice viewpoint. At 3.3 miles, look for the trail to fork towards the hill top. Approximately 250-300 feet will be an open area where you can park, and hike a short distance to the south for a nice view. Riders can turn back at this point or keep following the trail south towards Huckleberry Trail #12060.

To reach the next trail, continue south 3.7 miles then turn east on Barnaby Creek Road and continue about 3 miles, turn left on Forest Service Road #028. Follow this trail for about 5 miles, which ties into Huckleberry Trail #12060. The last section leads up a rocky slope to the top of a small peak, which offers excellent views of the surrounding valleys and mountains.
