For hiking, I'd rather have the 16mm/2.8 or 18-55 and be done with it. I've summited Mount Rainier multiple times carrying everything from a Nikon D300 w/16-55/2.8 strapped to my chest to a Canon S90 PowerShot point-n-shoot - A 24mm ff-equiv WR lens that can take in the grandeur as well as a decent portrait is perfect for these settings.

I don't really disagree, and full disclosure I've never owned anything wider than 24mm equivalent.  But there have been plenty of instances when I haven't gotten the shot that I saw in my mind's eye because of the lack of something wider.  It's not at all necessary, but I do think an ultra-wide lens will be fun - not just for panoramic shots but also for playing with perspective.
