Hidden Lake Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Hidden Lake lies unseen scarcely a half mile above huge Lake Wenatchee. Many families will prefer Hidden Lake, away from the crowds at Lake Wenatchee State Park, for its ponderosa-pine setting and that special feeling only a mountain lake that is located away from a road can provide. One sunny afternoon, I watched many parents with toddlers and babies playing at the water’s edge.Hidden Lake, elevation 2500 feet, is long and narrow and wraps itself around the base of Nason Ridge. Boulders surround the shore on three sides. A large one makes a particularly fine swimming launch. Families, fishermen, and bathers floating in rafts for the joy of floating have a wonderful time in its cool waters."
