Not so hidden is how I can best describe this picturesque lake in Glacier Natl Park. Too many people on this trail to really enjoy. Hiking beyond the lookout point reduces crowd size considerably.

Super crowded but still a great view at the overlook. The trail down to the lake was closed due to 3 active grizzlies that have been hanging around for the past several weeks. (Opening the trail to the lake could solve the crowd problems though.....). 2.8 miles in 1.25 hours with 500 feet of AEG.

This was another quick morning hike at one of the more popular trails in Glacier. The entire hike was in snow and the lake was frozen over, but that did not detract much for me.

I got an early start for this one considering its trailhead location at Logan's Pass, which opened just days before I went. There was a grizzly down at the lake, so nobody wanted to go further than the overlook, but I found another solo hiker that was willing to go down to the lake and we hiked down together and back. Micro spikes were perfect for this hike with the early morning hard snow. A lot of hikers were either skinning up the open slops or carrying skis and snowboards for their return trips.I started the hike to nearly nobody on the trails and finished to a full parking spot. The average wait time for a spot at Logan's pass is 12 minutes, so go early, or bring patience.

Highline Trail has fantastic views. Hidden lake had enough snow that we couldn't complete the hike. Also the end of the hike was closed due to bears.
