Take A Partially Boardwalked Trail Through The Rugged Logan Pass In Montana
There’s no doubt that hiking in Montana is an experience like no other. The Treasure State is a gem meant for nature lovers, and our beloved Big Sky Country is full of hiking trails for all skill levels and preferences. And if breathtaking scenery is a requirement for your next hike, we highly recommend you make a trip to Glacier National Park and find the Hidden Lake Trail.
The Hidden Lake Trail starts at the back of the Logan Pass Visitor Center and takes you to a breathtaking lookout.
The entire trail is about 5.3 miles in length (out and back) and it's considered moderately challenging. If you're a beginner, consider taking a more seasoned hiker with you or just hike part of the trail.
Most of the first mile of the trail is a boardwalk, offering a nice, easy trek.
Logan Pass is a magical part of the park, and this is a fantastic way to enjoy it.
There truly isn't a boring part of this trail—every step is scenic.
The alpine meadows, the rugged mountains, and the blue skies make it especially memorable.
The trail takes you uphill in a steady elevation gain as you climb toward 8760-foot Clements Mountain...
...and before you know it, you'll be at the Hidden Lake Overlook.
Here, you'll enjoy panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
Hidden Lake alone is enough of a visual treat... but make sure you keep your eyes peeled for wildlife in the area as well.
Bighorn sheep and marmots are especially common. There also have been Grizzly bears spotted here as well, so be mindful.
The Hidden Lake Trail is a perfect hike for visitors to Glacier National Park who want a moderately challenging trek that can easily be completed in a day.
Check it out the next time you're at Glacier—and make sure to start early in the morning to beat the crowds.
