This lesser known trail starts in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and then enters the northeast corner of the park, is snow-free early in the season and goes through some amazing old growth.

Huckleberry Creek Trail leaves Road 7340, an old spur road, in second growth timber. Quickly it becomes an established trail; after 0.1 mile, it crosses Lost Creek on a footlog and enters old-growth timber.

The trail follows Huckleberry Creek to the boundary with Mount Rainier National Park at mile point 0.9. Here is a nice stopping point for families or you can continue your hike into the Park to on the Lake James trail. Remember that if you're hiking with pups, you'll need to turn around at the park boundary, since dogs are not allowed in the national park.
