Hidden Lake at Glacier National Park in Montana

1 of 12

The View: Daniel Fagre, a U.S. Geological Survey ecologist, predicts that the remaining glaciers in Glacier National Park will have melted to a trickle by 2020—10 years sooner than earlier believed. Enjoy what remains by hiking to Hidden Lake, on the Continental Divide. You’ll pass pink and yellow monkey flowers, bear grass, and more than a few mountain goats before arriving in the midst of a 360-degree view of glacier-curved peaks, including Bearhat and Heavy Runner mountains.

Getting There: It’s a quick 1.5-mile hike from the Logan Pass Visitor Center on the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
