“A shorter, out-and-back run from the Logan Pass Visitor Center to the Hidden Lake Overlook.”— Jake Bramante
From here, the trail continues on dirt, climbing over Hidden Pass where you can often spot mountain goats. After 1.4 miles, Hidden Lake becomes visible down below at overlook with an interpretive sign. From here, there is also a great view into Sperry Glacier basin.
Most visitors head back from this overlook, but the trail does continue downward for an additional 1.2 miles to the north side of Hidden Lake. This is a steep descent that can be a challenging addition.
