HIKING: HIDDEN LAKE
AGE 5, MONTH 1
SEPT 1 (2019)
Our small family was due for a hike, so we picked a new place to explore over Labor Day weekend. Hidden Lake (Trail 1510) is right by Lake Wenatchee. It’s a nice, short distance for hiking with kids (0.8 miles round trip).
Of course, Todd was all pumped up to catch some fish with his hands. There were plenty of fish to see (tiny-to-small in size), but he was unsuccessful fishing (fortunately).
Here’s a view of Dirty Face Peak. Eric and I did that hike waaaay back in October of 2003! [The map at the top of this post shows the trail on the Green Trails map. I couldn’t highlight over the tape, but we did complete the whole hike!]
After the hike to Hidden Lake, we drove to the small parking lot at Glacier View campground. We lucked out and got one of just a few parking spots, since someone else was leaving right when we showed up.
Initially, Todd wanted to look for fish in the lake, but then he got interested in throwing rocks and practicing climbing over the rocks, back and forth several times.
Todd fell asleep in the car after his exertions!
Another time, we’ll have to return to do the shore hike that starts at Glacier View Campground (Trail 1510A). A weekday might offer the best chance of getting a parking spot when we return!
