Hidden Lake Lookout, North Cascades, Washington
Atop a rocky ridge at 6,900 feet (just outside North Cascades National Park) lies this gem, with 360-degree views of surrounding mountain peaks and ancient glaciers. A two hour drive from Seattle, the Hidden Lake Lookout hike is 4 miles one way, climbing 3,300 feet from the trailhead to the hut.
The hut itself is 85 years old and maintained by volunteers who have done an amazing job keeping it in good repair. The hut operates on a first-come, first-serve basis and on a clear day the views of Mt. Rainier are hard to beat.
