Ascent Trip Report

I approached Huckleberry Mtn from Old Fairview. There is a connecting road between Old Fairview and Rock Creek Rd. Rock Creek Road is a paved road from hwy 138 and goes all the way to Cottage Grove. About 18 miles from Hwy 138 when you reach the Calapooya Divide, turn left on this paved road and go 1.9 miles. This is where I parked because of the snow. If there is no snow, continue another 0.1 miles and turn right on the dirt road and drive up to the summit.

I hiked the road up to the summit where there is a relatively new radio tower and building. Views are good.
