The Mt. Hood Huckleberry Festival and Barlow Trail Days has become a popular family festival that celebrates the rich bounty of natural resources found in the Northwest on Mt. Hood. But it is perhaps best known for the huckleberry pancakes that are served in the morning as breakfast, and also for the soulful music.
The Mount Hood Huckleberry Festival & Barlow Trail Days is actually a reincarnation of an earlier event that dates back to the 1890 when an 1840′s Oregon trail emigrant, trading post operator and founder of the frontier settlement along the Salmon River named Samuel Welch opened a hotel in the picturesque village of Welches.
Pies, tarts, sauces and huckleberry pancakes… there is a lot you can enjoy at the festival. There are some huckleberry pizzas too you can try out. Spend quality time at the festival and go out on Barlow Trail tours and explore the remains of the famous old Oregon Trail. Features huckleberry pancake feed, arts and crafts, live music, salmon bake, BBQ, watermelon launch, exhibits, fresh huckleberries, huckleberry jam and shakes, tours, and storytelling.
Sponsored by The Cascade Geographic Society whose Mission is “To Preserve, Educate, & Promote the Cultural, Historical, & Natural Resources of the Cascade Mountain Range and all of the Lands & Waters that it influences…”
