Trailhead: behind Logan Pass Visitor Center
This hike begins at Logan Pass and has totally unobstructed views the entire way. On the back side of the Visitor Center, after climbing the stairs, stay towards the right and you will find the Hanging Gardens Trailhead. The trail is most referred to as Hidden Lake Nature Trail. Most of the first section of the trail is on a boardwalk to prevent visitors stepping on fragile alpine plants. The trail ends with a tremendous view of Hidden Lake located in a glacier-carved cirque surrounded by amazing peaks. This is one of the best short hikes you could possibly do and there is a superb chance of seeing mountain goats as well. To avoid the crowds we recommend taking this hike in the morning.
