Special Features

Hidden Creek Trail provides easy access to Skilak Lake and the mouth of Hidden Creek. This trail goes through a burn area that occurred in 1996. The section to the west goes directly to Skilak Lake, while the section to the east passes near the mouth of Hidden Creek. The eastern section is about ½ mile longer than the western section. The two sections meet at Skilak Lake and you can hike along the shore to the west. Both sections may be wet and muddy and boardwalks may be slippery. There are several views of the Kenai Mountains through the burned areas and excellent views of the Kenai Mountains from the shore of Skilak Lake.
