Added by Crissy Bauman

The Huckleberry Lookout trail is a relatively easy (3400 feet elevation, but no switchbacks) 6 mile hike to a fire tower lookout that gives an amazing view of Glacier National Park and the Flathead National Forest.

The first couple miles of this trail are mostly through a forest, without too much noticeable elevation change.  The next two miles are a bit more uphill, but with occasional mountain views.  Around mile four you will go over the saddle and the trail levels out for about another mile, with a lot of amazing views (completely different from the previous).  The final mile is a bit more uphill, but without any switchbacks, and the lookout is in sight.  The there is a short trail to the pit toilet just past the lookout.

To find the trailhead: enter the park via West Glacier, and turn left at the first stop sign so you are headed northwest on Camas Road.  Just past the McGee Meadows Overlook pullout (on the right) you will see the Huckleberry Lookout trailhead parking lot on the left.  There is room for perhaps six or eight vehicles.
