BERRY PICKING

With cooler Fall weather on the horizon, can berries be far behind?  Fall is a favorite season for both huckleberries and mountain blueberries.  It’s sometimes hard to get the locals to cough up their favorite picking spots—but here are a few ideas:

  • Huckleberries are mostly found above 4000 feet in elevation.  The area around Chinook Pass usually has a lot of huckleberries, but it also gets a lot of people in the summer, so the pickings can get a little slim.  Better is the area at the top of Corral Pass Road along the Noble Knob and Rainier View trails, or even down towards Hidden Lake.  A lot of people also go picking along FS 73, especially up by the Huckleberry Creek Trail (great name, yes?) that goes into Mt. Rainier National Park. 
  • Blueberries can also be found in abundance on the back roads around Greenwater and also sometimes along FS 73.
