Hidden lakes is a great family pass. You have to meet at the Logan Pass visitor center. It is a very popular hike. The trails are well manicured and are wooden decking for most of the way. There is a good chance of seeing mountain goats or bighorn sheep. The hike down to the lake was closed due to bear activity. The mileage from the ranger station to the Hidden Lake Lookout was 3 miles round trip.
After that we crossed the street for the Highline Trail along the Garden Wall. The goal was to hike above the Grinnell Glacier. The hike was about 7 miles. The first 3-4 miles are a gradual uphill walk. The next three are a gradual downhill hike. Thentrail makes a hard right turn and then runs aggressively uphill for .6 mikes. This portion of the hike is strenuous. There have been goats seen st the pass. The pictures are extraordinary and some of the best of the glacier can be found to the left of the pass.
We then moved downhill and headed to the Chalet. From the chalet, we walked 4 miles down hill though a burned out forest to get to the shuttle and trueness to our cars in the Logan Pass visitor center.
