Hidden Lake - Adams County
Aliases: Mayham Lake
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Hidden Lake, marked as Mayham Lake on some maps, is a good-size private body of water in a suburban setting. It can be good in the colder months for diving ducks including Red-breasted Merganser and goldeneyes. A few exotic waterfowl also call this lake home. Best scanning is from the north, in front of the Educational Services Center of Adams County School District 50; another vantage point is a large dirt pullout near the southwest corner of the lake.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Urban/Suburban
Directions: From the south, take I-76 to the Sheridan Boulevard exit (exit 2), then follow Sheridan north. From the north, take US 36 to the Sheridan exit and follow Sheridan south. To get to the north side of the lake, turn east from Sheridan onto 70th Street, then turn right (south) onto Stuart at the "T" intersection. Stuart curves around to the east and becomes 68th, which runs along the north side of the lake in front of the School District building and provides many fine scanning opportunities. To access the southwest vantage point, turn east off Sheridan onto 68th (not the same 68th as mentioned above) and pull almost immediately into the dirt pullout on the left before the town houses begin.
