Hidden Lake Trail in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park Montana

Hidden Lake Trail in Glacier National Park

The Hidden Lake Trail in Glacier National Park is one of the best hiking experiences we’ve ever had.  

Period.

This trail moves through amazing scenery, has an abundance of mountain wildlife and takes hikers on both sides of the continental divide.  On the way up you’ll be filled with anticipation, and on the way down to the lake you’ll be awestruck by the scenery the entire time.

While there are some things that you’ll need to know and be prepared for, we highly recommend taking this hike the entire way (or at least to the Hidden Lake Overlook) while visiting Glacier National Park.

Trail of the Cedars in Glacier National Park

Hiking the Trail of the Cedars in Glacier National Park is one of the most popular activities along the Going-to-the-Sun Road.  Not only is it one of the easiest and most accessible hikes to people of all ages, skill levels and physical conditions (including wheelchair accessible), it is also in a location that is likely already on your planned route in the park. 

Though the trail is only 0.8-miles in total, you’ll feel immediately immersed in a thick grove of trees.  Since the trail is a loop, even the kids won’t get bored at all along this hike.
