Hungry Horse, population about 900, is one of those small communities likely to be overlooked on the way to Glacier National Park, which lies just 10 miles to the east. But it's worth a stop, either for a traveler's rest break or a place to spend the night prior to a full day in the park. Worth checking out are the several roadside stands offering various concoctions made from native huckleberries. The best are the huckleberry milk shakes that leave you wanting more. A worthy side trip is the nearby Hungry Horse Dam (406-387-5241) and the 34-mile-long Hungry Horse Reservoir. A road circling the reservoir provides easy access to many hiking areas in the nearby national forests and wilderness areas.
