Overview
More
Hidden Lake is an undeveloped, water-based park. Backcountry camping is permitted, however, there are no facilities provided. Access to the 3000 hectare natural park is a series of rivers and lakes linked by short portages. Two day use areas, (Powder Point and Cameron Falls), provide access to the Park from the Ingraham Trail; the closest access point from Yellowknife is at Powder Point, some 45 km along the trail. Hidden Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area east of Yellowknife. On a sunny day, this lake appears aquamarine in colour, and you can spot the fish swimming in its crystal clear water. Powder Point Day Use Area offers access by canoe to the east arm of Prelude Lake and thence to Hidden Lake; the Cameron Falls Trail is a pleasant short hike through the forest to Cameron Falls. Above the falls, a bridge provides access by foot into Hidden Lake Park. There are two abandoned gold mines within hiking distance of Hidden Lake. The first is on the southeast side of the lake, a quick walk in from the shoreline. The second is on Thompson Lake, a difficult two hour hike in from the most northerly bay of Hidden Lake. Neither of the mines has been in operation since the 1940's.

Stunningly beautiful trail with so many incredible photo spots. We came in March and it was really strange to see the falls frozen over but to be able to hear the thawing water gushing underneath. Very few other people there which made for a lovely...More

It's so refreshing to find a beautifully maintained snow covered trail leading you to the frozen waterfall at the end of it. The billowing fluffy snow was so beautiful along our hike to see.

Stopped there on my first day as a tourist to Yellowknife and with it being mid-summer, I found Hidden Lake to have beautiful views and the water was amazing. Several families were either picnicking or boating.

Never found the "frozen falls", but fabulous hike. Well marked trail. Almost missed this one because it's a bit of a drive out of Yellowknife. Definitely worth the time. Suggestion... don't go with people who like to shake snow out of trees on your head.

If this is the place with the falls it was wonderful!!!! Long walk but very nice!!! Bring along a dog in case of wildlife. We went as a group and it was very nice. Not a good outhouse though, so hope that's not a deal...More

We wanted a relaxed trip and we got it! Beautiful paddle in and short easy portages. We camped on an island to get away from some bugs and it was great. Just beware of the terns and seagulls and give them LOTS of space if...More

It's not hidden in the sense that you can't see it from the road, but getting up to the Ingraham Trail in the first place is a triumph ... if you go to Yellowknife and DON'T do the Ingraham Trail, we have to wonder why??...More
