Ascent Trip Report

There is a parking lot and kiosk at the trailhead on Cherohala Skyway. The trail is actually an old maintenance road, but overgrown. Huckleberry Knob is a maintained grassy bald with excellent views to the south, east, and west. There is a grave marked by a cross immediately west of the summit. I didn't see a benchmark, although several people were camping in the summit area.
