Trail Information

The Cecret Lake Trail is a short, easy hike that ends at an alpine lake. This hike provides panoramas of Patsy Marley, Wolverine, Tuscarora, Point Supreme, Devil’s Castle, Sugarloaf, Baldy and East Greeley. These peaks surround Albion Basin, a glacial basin that was carved out of the mountains by the Little Cottonwood Glacier thousands of years ago.

When winter comes, it is common to see snowshoers and backcountry skiers along the Cecret Lake Trail.


Via Little Cottonwood Canyon Road (9400 South Wasatch Blvd) about 10.9 miles up the canyon to Albion Basin Campground (3 miles above Alta). Trailhead is located on the west side of the campground at trailhead sign.
