Easy to moderate hike
2.2 miles –
An easy trail located on the Cherohala Skyway National Scenic Byway, located 10 miles up from Snowbird Mountain Lodge.
A short hike with an approximately 400-foot elevation climb, known for its wildflowers and 360-degree view at the top.
There is a parking area off to the right on the Skyway (just past the 5,000 ft. marker) with a trailhead that follows an old forest service roadbed across two distinct knobs. The first, Oak Knob, is well known for its patches of wild strawberries. The second and higher knob is Big Huckleberry. A grave is located on Huckleberry with a great story. A third knob, Little Huckleberry is located just off the second bald, the trail is located on the far side of Big Huckleberry. We consider this hike one of the best. Keep in mind, this is high up and the winds can be strong and the weather unpredictable.
Great area to pack your Snowbird picnic lunch and a blanket to enjoy your meal and the view at the top.
Dogs are allowed on the trail. It is a favorite of the Snowbird Dogs in the offseason.
