Description

This steep trail follows the ridge through rolling hills with oak trees providing shade and dry grassy meadows with excellent view points. Cold springs, located about 5 miles from the trailhead, provide a good cooling off spot on this otherwise dry hike. The trail ends on the Pacific Crest Trail, below Big Huckleberry Mountain.

A fire lookout was constructed on Grassy Knoll in 1934 and was later abandoned and destroyed. A lookout was also constructed on Big Huckleberry Mountain in the 1920s. It was replaced with another building in the 1930's.

Wildflowers and huckleberries blanket the meadows in season. Fantastic views of the Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Defiance, Big Lava Bed, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Hood are visible from many meadows along the trail.<>/p>
