This brief 3 mile round trip hike is a must-do. Most of it is on boardwalks so you have secure footing the whole way. If you are not used to hiking, there is some elevation gain so be sure to pack some water.

Easy trail to the Hidden Lake overlook. Some smoke but not too bad. We only saw one mountain goat, would have liked to see more wildlife

The Going to the Sun road must be open to access Hidden Lake. There are many other options for great hikes. Avalanche Lake is beautiful. Many beautiful hikes in the Two Medicine area.
