Just one of many gorgeous lakes to see on the quieter side of this iconic US National Park. Moderately steep in places but completely worth the effort.

We didn't stop at the overlook, but if you do it is worth the long-ish uphill boardwalk walk to see the view (it looks like this picture). Beyond the overlook is the loooooonnnnnng narrow dirt path that winds down to the lake. People coming back up will be huffing and puffing on their way. But it was a sunny day... More

This is a fairly easy hike in and out - unless you have trouble with steps, and the boardwalk has a lot of steps. We were unfortunate to not see any animals at all and were disappointed by that. However, the views are beautiful and it is worth the effort to get to the Hidden Lake Overlook.

This hike is perfect! In just 3 miles (round trip) we saw mountain goats, marmots, birds aplenty, and big horn sheep. The wild flowers were abundant and beautiful. I recommend it highly.

The walk out to Hidden Lake is not as easy as the guide books suggest. There are a lot of steps, though not steep, at the beginning of this hike. If you take breaks, it is to manageable. The hike is through open meadows, lots of wild flowers but no shade. The Lake looked great, but it was so smoky... More

3 miles round trip with a 500' elevation gain. Moderately strenuous and well worth it! Wildflowers, mountain goats, and many other trekkers.

Fabulous, well worth the hike, clear water, amazing scenery. Not a real strenuous hike, just right, saw lots of couples with young children.

This is a spectacular hike. Well worth a visit if you go to Glacier Park. There are a lot of beautiful wildflowers in the summer and the walk up the valley between many mountains is spectacular. The overlook point where many people stop has a good view of the lake though I think the view improves as you walk further.... More
