>From zfs(1M) man page:

       File system snapshots can be accessed under the ".zfs/snapshot"  direc-
       tory  in  the  root  of  the  file  system. Snapshots are automatically
       mounted on demand and may be unmounted at regular intervals. The  visi-
       bility of the ".zfs" directory can be controlled by the "snapdir" prop-
       snapdir=hidden | visible

           Controls  whether  the ".zfs" directory is hidden or visible in the
           root of the file system as discussed in  the  "Snapshots"  section.
           The default value is "hidden".
