Hidden Valley Trail – 0.4mi / 0.6km
This quiet walk through meadows and forest explores an area with a history of many uses. Interpretive signs and picnic tables are interspersed with the trees and meadows along Hidden Valley Creek.
The area, once the home to a sawmill, saw a brief stint as a ski resort and still bears the scars of the old ski runs. The official trail crosses the creek at the second bridge and turns back down to the parking lot.
Trailhead: Turn up into Hidden Valley off of the Trail Ridge Road and park in the parking lot at the end. The trail begins near the restrooms.
