“An alpine trail across flowering alpine meadows backdropped with peaks to a beautiful lake.”— Jake Bramante
The trail gets closer to Clements Mountain and skirts a moraine and crosses numerous feeder streams that are to become Reynolds Creek below. The trail levels out at Hidden Pass with subalpine fir and pocket lakes. Mountain goats are frequent here and on the shoulders of the surrounding mountains. The trail gently goes to a platform at Hidden Lake Overlook which serves as the turning around point for many. Here, you look down at the beautiful Hidden Lake tucked beneath cliffs and backdropped by Bearhat Mountain. Interpretive signs help you pick out Sperry Glacier in the background.
From here, the trail continues on dirt as it traverses fairly level terrain on the north side of the lake before hitting a switchback where the trail steeply descends to the lake in a flurry of switchbacks. At the bottom of the descent, the trail wanders to a pebbled shoreline and the outlet of the lake. It's a great spot to relax, fish, or have a snack.
If you take this trail all the way to the lake, be sure to save a bit of energy for the return trip!
