I completed the Hidden Lake Lookout hike on October 21, 2018, and definitely was so blessed with such gorgeous warm weather. I was in awe pretty much all throughout the hike up and back down, and some parts made me feel like I was on a different planet.
Location: North Cascades
Length: 8 mi., roundtrip
Elevation Gain: 3300ft. Highest Point: 6900 ft.
I’d do this hike all over again and will definitely hike early because of the Hidden Lake’s geographical location. The last stretch up to the lookout is 1000% worth it.
