Portland, OR: Huckleberry Mountain via Bonanza Trail

or

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 11.4 miles


Climb to an under-the-radar peak in the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness on this 11.4-mile out-and-back an hour southeast of Portland.

  • Bonanza Trailhead
  • Trail Sign
  • Creek Crossing
  • Second Creek Crossing
  • Cheeney Creek
  • Wildflowers
  • Bonanza Mine

Although this 4,378-foot peak is within an hour’s drive of Portland, it sees little foot traffic, which means you’ll get five-star views of Mt. Hood all to yourself. Starting just south of Mt. Hood Village, the 11.4-mile out-and-back follows the fern-lined (and sometimes faint) Bonanza Trail along Cheeney Creek’s riffling cascades, then climbs 2,800 feet in 3.5 miles to the ridgetop. Push past the wooded summit at mile 5.3 to reach a broad saddle less than half a mile later overlooking Mt. Hood.
