Hidden Lake (Allen Lake)

As its name implies, Hidden Lake is "hidden" on the north side of Nason Ridge just southwest of Lake Wenatchee. It is an extremely easy 1/2 mile hike up a formal USFS trail to the lake. It is highly recommended as a good place to take children. It can be quite popular for day hikers but the lake is about 8 acres in size so you should be able to find some solitude. WDFW conducted a fish population survey during the summer of 2023 and determined that Eastern Brook Trout were likely the only trout species present, of which averaged about 9 inches in length.

Getting here:

Drive the Stevens Pass Highway (Highway 2) to Coles Corner and turn north onto Highway 207 towards Lake Wenatchee. 4 miles from the junction, turn left into the Lake Wenatchee State Park. In a short distance (just before the park boundary) turn left and take the road 5 miles to Glacier View Campground and the trailhead at 1920 feet. The formal trail is well worn and switchbacks up to the lake.
