Road Scholar hike to Hidden Lake Overlook in Glacier National Park

Hidden Lake Overlook, Glacier National Park

On the last day in Glacier National Park, our Road Scholar group hiked to Hidden Lake Overlook. The 3-mile-round-trip journey traveled uphill from the Logan Pass Visitor Center crossing alpine tundra where a few summer wildflowers waved their yellow and pink blooms in a blustery wind. No matter which way we looked, mountain peaks provided tempting photo opportunities. At the overlook, our group stopped for a picnic lunch, complete with a mountain goat sighting. What a scenic ending to five days of beautiful hiking in Glacier National Park. How many total miles did Alan and I hike? 30!
