Ascent of Huckleberry Mountain on 2010-09-12
|Date:||Sunday, September 12, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6370 ft / 1941 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI approached Huckleberry Mtn from Hwy 62 turning on FR 60 the Mill Creek Ridge Road. I turned off of FR 60 onto FR 6215 which passes on the west side of Huckleberry and then FR 800 for a short distance up to the saddle on the south ridge of Huckleberry Mtn. I hiked up the forested south ridge to the high point. Some of the route has been recently brushed, so the hiking was fairly easy. There is a rocky outcropping about 100 yards south of the high point indicated on the topo that appears to be a couple feet higher. There were no views from the summit because of the forest.
