“Hard to get to from Logan Pass Visitor Center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Would have loved to hike to this lake, but The Logan Pass Visitor Center parking area was jam packed and cars going everywhich way trying to find a place to park. I think when it's busy like this, they should have someone assisting and guiding traffic. We were unable to make it to the lake this day because of parking issues.

“Logan Pass vista”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

The overlook was amazing and the trail down to the lake was worth the extra effort climbing back up.

“Partly closed for bear activity but very scenic.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Fairly steep approach up a long boardwalk and steps from the back of the Logan Pass Visitor Center. Nice observation deck to see Hidden Lake from. Couldn't go beyond this, as trail was closed due to bear activity. Saw prairie dogs, marmots, and mountain goats. Get there early, as parking lot fills up by 10 or so.

“beautiful, but a lot of steep boardwalk steps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Completed this hike in late August, 2012. I am not sure this is a "hike" in the most traditional sense. Much of it is a boardwalk trail. The boardwalk section has a lot of steps. If you are short, the steps may be tough as some are spread far apart and require a bit of extra effort on the knees. I found these steps harder than any other hiking we did on this trip. However, the pay-off is great. Hidden Lake Overlook is beautiful. The overall, wide-expanse views are just lovely the entire hike. Great opportunities to see wildlife. We saw mountain goats, marmots, and squirrels on this hike. Get there early to secure a parking spot at Logan Pass. Nice to eat breakfast at the end, although seeing people feeding the squirrels ruined the experience a bit.
