We had already hiked Avalanche Lake, and had a wonderful experience in that amazing place. It was raining, but we decided to make the trek out to the overlook anyway. Lots of people were on the trail, but we were rewarded with a look at our first mountain goats. Absolutely amazing, and obviously made the trip worth the time. We... More

Just behind Logan's Pass visitors center is the trail-head for the Hidden Lake trail. The Hidden Lake overlook trail is only 1 1/2 miles. It is a beautiful hike, and there was snow covering half of it when I went. The actual hike to the lake was closed due the excess amount of snow on the trail, but the view... More

This is a moderate trail that begins at the Logan Pass visitor center. It is very popular because in a short while you are quickly rewarded with spectacular views of mountain peaks, glaciers, ponds, and valleys. We went in mid July and more than half the trail was still covered in snow. The slope is modest so we could scramble... More

This was a good day hike ~ although be warned, unless you are there VERY early, the trail is crowded and you will not be alone. It is also considered an easier hike, so there are a lot families and large groups. The remaining snow on the ground made it a little slippery/tricky in some areas, but mostly, this is... More

This is the perfect hike to get your legs warmed up for longer hikes. The views are wonderful and it is not that long. Much of the walk is board walk but there is some snow. The goats were everywhere along with a marmont and the Columbia Ground Squirrels trying to eat your food. We even saw a Bear in... More

Always a great hike. Hidden Lake is awesome and animals are always around. If you're there in the early summer you'll get to cross snow fields and in late summer you enjoy awesome colors and views.

Don't miss this! Bring your camera and persevere all the way to the wooden deck for that view. Wow. Really enjoyed this. Watch for the snow, it's slippery.

We were awed by the beauty of Glacier National Park the minute we got there, yet the hiking trail from Logan Pass to Hidden Lake Overlook still took our breath away! It was indeed heaven on earth as some had put it. Every angle is a gorgeous view! We went mid-July when there was still a foot of snow on... More
