Huckleberry Picking Paradise

There are huckleberries all around this area. Take exit 15 from I90 and head north along Fernan Lake rd. You will travel about 7 miles up to a large parking area with several roads leading away from it. Begin you exploration along any road, just get out and walk at least 50 feet off the road to look for good berries. Most berries right on the road will be picked.

A couple of tips from The Guide to North Idaho.

1. The mountains of the Coeur d’Alenes are known for their abundance of huckleberries, a round, purple berry native to North Idaho. Sunlight enhances production, so the best berry picking is usually found along abandoned logging roads, in areas where timber has been harvested or where forest fires have occurred.

2. The huckleberry is an erect shrub ranging from one to five feet tall. By mid-June, berries on south facing lower slopes are ripe. Good picking is as late as October on north slopes. Abundant huckleberry picking spots are available throughout North Idaho. Best picking is between late July and early Augus
