This hike steep and treacherous in the parts where snow remained. Much of the hike is boardwalk, but there was still significant amounts of snow on parts of the trail/boardwalk even in mid-July. Close-toed and close-heeled shoes are a must. There were adults and children...More

Covered in snow in early July--was not expecting that. My adult son had sandals on but he was a trooper and never complained. We slipped and slid and fell a few times in the snow. Beautiful sunny day, so we were in tshirts. The lake...More

As the title says, it's worth the short trek, at least to the overlook. You can turn around there and feed the Columbian ground squirrels back at the visitor center.

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.
