Hidden Lake (Mount Rainier)

Hi Dick,

Thanks for bringing my attention to the hiking stats of Hidden Lake. The book "50 Hikes in Mt. Rainier National Park" is outdated. My coworker Jeff Bowman and researched the stats using a current Green Trails map and the guidebook "Day Hiking Mount Rainier". We found that the hike to Hidden Lake is actually 6.4 miles RT, with approximately 900 feet in elevation gain. I'm not sure why the "50 Hikes" book had the elevation gain listed at 1,600 ft.
Thanks again.
