We had really misty weather on the walk up. It is a moderate level with a lot of steps to navigate and it is mostly uphill. Much easier on the way down though. We worried that we would see very little when we got to the overlook but luckily by waiting 10 mins it cleared and it is a really... More

Walked the Hidden Lake Overlook trail behind the Logan Pass Visitor Center. Don't be fooled. It's big tall steps, up lots of hills. Just when you think you are to the top, you have another hill to climb. Can get colder up there. Saw goats next to path. Made it to the overlook, finally. Pretty but the lake still seemed... More

Logan Pass is high, so bring some warm clothes. Also bring food, there is nothing there. But the hike is great, you walk through the meadows and the have the wonderful view from the overlook.

Well worth the 1.5 mile hike in for a breath taking view. Try to go on a clear day and when it's warm.

This is a great short hike at the top of Logan Pass. Spectacular 360 degrees views await you at the top of many well constructed wood stairs and well defined dirt trails. There are a few waterfalls that beckon you along the way. Be prepared for rain since it's so close to the Continental Divide.

Easy hike, great views and plenty of wildlife. Portions of the trail is on boardwalks. Scan the mountains above for wildlife. The mountains go on forever

For being on the continental divide, this trail to the Hidden Lake Overlook (3 miles roundtrip) is amazingly accessible. Very suitable for children and those that are less fit or have a little trouble getting around. The initial climb from the Logan Pass visitor's center is on a wooden boardwalk, so just take your time and view the mountains, flowers,... More

Context: Behind the Logan Pass Visitor's Center you will find the trailhead, and the walk is a manageable 1.5 miles up a relatively scalable slope. When we went in mid-July, there was still a fair bit of snow to traverse, so wearing shoes with traction is important. Unlike some other hikes, you do not any shade protection from trees -... More

Beautiful!! Although the hike to the lake itself was closed due to bear activity, the overlook was amazing in its own right. Not to be missed on your visit to Glacier.

Throwing snowballs at each other and walking the trail in the snow to the observation point. We are from Florida and cannot do that in mid-July!
