Create folder that is not visible for other users server 2003


I have to create a folder (e.g. \\server\share$\specialfolder) inside network share (\\server\share$) that is listed/visible to a FEW USERS ONLY. When I make the folder Hidden, it still lists as hidden folder for everyone with permissions to the parent directory. When I make the folder shared with $, is still lists in the parent directory. So far the only way I make it completely invisible to the users if I create a new share (\\server\specialfolder$) and give permissions to selected users only.
Anyway I can have scenario \\server\share$\specialforlder, and have specialfolder not listed inside \\server\share$ ?
