Nice easy walk and saw lots of wildlife including a Grizzly bear within 10 minutes of the start of the walk, passed across the path in front of us.

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

Beautiful and easy hike. Loved the wildflowers, mountains, lakes, views, and wildlife (we saw horned sheep and a couple bears). We arrived at 8 am and had no problem hiking. Restrooms are available at the bottom, as well as a place to get water. Highly...More

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.
