This is a short but steepish forested trail leading to a little lake. For those who live or frequently visit the Plain/Leavenworth environs, this is a good family hike to stretch the legs and get a little exercise. For people who are infrequent visitors, there are more interesting hikes in the region to tackle first. The trail is forested, and provides pleasant walking but doesn’t yield expansive views. Look for signs marking the Hidden Lake Trail at the Glacier View Campground.

Leave It Better Than You Found It. This should be every outdoor user’s goal. Pick up trash left by others, pull some noxious weeds along your route, throw branches over unwanted spur trails, don’t ride or walk wet trails when you’re leaving ruts/footprints deeper than ¼ inch…
