If you're visiting Logan's Pass at the Continental Divide, you want to make sure you take a couple of hours to make this hike. At the time we went, we had to stop at the overlook because of potential bears. We walked through some snow, so make sure you wear hiking boots or waterproof shoes. This uphill climb is well...

This is a beautiful lake hidden up in the mountains. It is a hike to get there but a hike that is well worth the effort. There is a boardwalk part way. We walked in snow for awhile too which made it even better. During our hike, we saw some goats and while we were at the lake overview (the... More

Located close to the Logan Pass Visitor Center, the 3.0 mile round trip hike on Hidden Lake Nature Trail is very doable for all ages. Some sections may still be covered with snow so good walking shoes are important with Trekkig poles recommended for those who want a bit more security and support. A 460 foot climb over 1.5 miles...

This was fun hike but a bit challenging in quite a bit of snow even though it was the last week in June (the lake was still frozen as well). It was definitely a bit of a slog and trekking poles are helpful. The mountain goats made it worth it however.

Departing from Logan's pass, this was a great family hike. Due to bears in the area, we were only able to travel as far as the Hidden Lake Overlook--but it was well worth it. The views were spectacular! We did the hike with our four year old and a two year old in a back carry. There was some treacherous... More

This was a gorgeous hike, however, a little tricky with the snow and a 4 year old. My husband had to help some others with small kids up along the mountain side where the snow was slippery! Gorgeous view though!

We took this hike through the snow with our 10 and 14-year-olds who love not only the snow but seeing the mountain goats with their babies. Beautiful views and a doable hike for almost anyone.

I have been to Logan Pass multiple times over the years because my son has worked in the park. I have hiked up to the Hidden Lake observation point several times and down to the lake also. This time we couldn't go to the lake itself due to grizzly bear sightings. The weather was great but there were still patches... More
