Overview

Hidden Lake is a beautiful mountain lake perched in the cirque below Hidden Peak and O'Malley Peak. This hike is a great option for those looking for a day out.

Description

Start at the Glen Alps trailhead and head up to the Powerline Pass Trail. You'll take this for about two miles and for those miles the trail is flat and easy as you parallel the South Fork Campbell Creek. Keep your eyes open for moose around here!

When you reach the junction with Ship Lake Pass Trail, take a left and follow it up into the hills. Here, the grade begins to steepen as you wind further into the hills. Take a left when you reach Hidden Lake trail, which occasionally becomes less obvious as you climb higher into the cirque. Once you reach Hidden Lake enjoy the wonderful views and some time at the lake. From there you can head back the way you came. However, if you want some extra mileage, you can follow The Ramp West Ridge Trail to the Ramp and then loop back down on Ship Lake Pass Trail.
