Hike to Huckleberry Mountain Lookout

Rate this Adventure Montana Trail of the Cedars Trailhead

Added by Bo Baumgartner

Enjoy fantastic views of the Continental Divide and all of the huckleberries you can eat, depending on the season on this Glacier National Park hike. 

From West Glacier (about 25 miles east of Whitefish), take the Going to the Sun highway for 2 miles, then turn left on the Camas Rd. Look for the trailhead on the left about 6 miles north of Apgar Village.

The trail is an out and back, about 6 miles to the summit, 12 miles total. It climbs steadily through a lodgepole pine forest, huckleberries, beargrass, then to open views up high. The trail gains about 3,400 ft. of elevation and the summit is at 6,593 ft.

Watch for bears during berry season!
