Mt Hood Huckleberries
Huckleberries are readily available in Mt Hood in the months of July and August. Without getting too technical, there are generally two types of huckleberries: red and blue.
The picture above shows the blue huckleberries. If you have the talent I strongly suggest making a huckleberry pie. There is nothing more tasty fresh and hot out of the oven.
You will find some huckleberries near the cabin, but I recommend you go a bit higher up the mountain into the Mt Hood National Forest.
The Mt Hood Information Center will be able to provide you with the best picking locations.
The Information Center is located at 65000 East HWY 26, Welches, Oregon, 97067.
It is a great source of information for all Mt. Hood activities.
