While the peak can be accessed from Snowbird Resort, the easiest way to get there is from the Cecret Lake trail head. At the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon Road is a dirt road that begins at the end of the pavement. Take the dirt road to the top parking lot. On a weekend, I would suggest parking in the paved lot and taking the shuttle bus. Follow the Cecret Lake Trail to the lake. At the lake, turn right and look for a trail that goes toward a dirt road. Hike to the dirt road, then follow the trail underneath the Sugarloaf lift. The dirt road will also take you to the top of the lift but will add distance. At the top of Sugarloaf lift, go right toward Mt. Baldy. Take the trail to the summit of Mt. Baldy and hike the ridge line to Hidden Peak.

I wanted to run on the way back so I dropped onto the dirt road back side of Hidden peak and ran toward Sugarloaf lift instead of taking the ridge line back. It's about a 5 mile round trip and can be done in about 2-3 hours.
Hiking two peaks in one day has been a sure way to get my 13 peaks in fast. It's the end of August and I've actually completed my goal but can't write about the peaks fast enough. Coming up next: Mt. Raymond and Gobbler's Knob.
