- Built in 1931, Hidden Lake Lookout has steep snow fields on its 4.5 mile trail that usually requires an ice axe well into July. The views from the Hidden Lake Lookout include the south unit of the North Cascades National Park and the Glacier Peak Wilderness. The lookout is maintained by volunteers from the Skagit Alpine Club.
Formally used as fire lookouts, they have been adopted by local organizations using volunteer time and materials to maintain the facilities. The lookouts are open to the public for day or overnight use on a first-come first-served basis. The lookouts are generally inaccessible until mid to late summer due to snow. If you plan to spend the night in a lookout, be aware that they may be occupied when you arrive.
