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
  • All of the huckleberries you can eat, depending on the season...
  • 12 miles roundtrip to the summit
  • 3400' elevation gain

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!

Capture Sunrise at St. Mary Lake

Montana / St. Mary Lake Pullout

One of the more popular spots to photograph this lake is from the Wild Goose Island pullout. However, I prefer to get off the beaten path a little bit and avoid the crowds.
