Description
Huckleberry starts on top of Spruce Mountain. Ramble down a short set of stairs to start and then be prepared for rocky pedaling right off the bat. Eventhough the trail trends downhill you'll find yourself turning the cranks for most of the route.

The beginning stages of the trail are in fairly dense hardwood and scrubs followed by dark pine groves with little understory. Every so often the trail breaks out into open areas with a few trees and grassy meadows.

The trail remains technical throughout and requires constant attention to time your pedal strokes and shift your weight over various rocks and root combinations.

About two-thirds into the route you'll encounter a series of directional signs for Huckleberry Trail. Follow these first through a big pine grove and then along an old road bed before jumping back into the forest. The trail will turn to the north eventually and then drop down the ridge to an intersection with Lumberjack.

Turn left at the junction if you're riding the Huckleberry - Lumberjack Loop.
