hike: Boulder Ridge + Huckleberry Mountain (early summer)
The Boulder Ridge trailhead is located at the Wildwood Recreation Area just off 26 Highway in Welches, Oregon. This is a great conditioning hike, with a lot of elevation gain that isn’t too difficult. May is a good time to see rhododendrons and bear grass in bloom.
Distance: 10.6 miles
Elevation gain: 3,450 ft.
Location: Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, Oregon
