Hiking Hungry Mountain, at least at the peak of huckleberry season, requires willpower more than hiking stamina. Give in to temptation, and hikers may never reach the namesake peak. For those who are willing to hike hungry rather than fill up on the purple trailside bounty, Hungry Mountain rewards visitors with picturesque views toward the Idaho Selkirks. Nab the peak first, and save the berries for the return to the trailhead.
