Ridge / Hidden Valley Hike Map

This hike starts from where the Saddle Track meets Pete's Treat. There is a gate to the left which leads up a ridgeline. Up here is access to Hidden Valley and the top part of Sun Dance. Its not always open as that aspect needs a lot of snow to make it skiable. So listen to the advice of ski patrol. It's a fairly easy hike, although it is an exposed ridgeline, so be careful with your footing.
