hiding web directories

Is there a way to make a directory truly "hidden" unless that has been authenticated with htaccess. Basically I want the person to see only what they have access to and not the other folders. So they don't get the "Access Denied" message. They just will not see the folder. Thanks for any help. BTW I have .htaccess and .htpasswd working fine. I just need to hide directories.

Same way you hide your access files, put a period in front of the directory name ie.. .directory
