The trail is good now. No snow shoes needed.

This trail was SO beautiful today! The snow was perfect on the trees and mountains and good to walk through. Lots of people snow shoeing and with touring skis. I had hike spikes and poles and that worked great. The falls at the end was amazing and so worth traversing up the rocks at the top to get inside the little cave. The road to the trailhead is closed due to snow but it doesn’t make it that much longer.

I redone this hike again today. I love the views it gives and the many trail options. I've been to this hike 4 times maybe and each time have done another route. I even saw another route I will do the next time I go. Beautiful views of Lake Utah, The Valley and The Wasatch. Would be a great spot to watch the sunset too. There is one sheepish hill so wouldn't rank this easy but if your an avid hiker then it will be easy. Dogs can be off leash on part of the trail and have to be leashed on others. The trail also isnt a trail per say as it is a vehicle track.

I brought our family from Virginia, an 18,16,and 13 year old and my own kids 11,9,7,and 5 year old. Good snow, icy at the top. Beautiful at the top, good for all ages.

We hiked to the suspension bridge and did the loop back to our car. The bridge looks magnificent and the hike is nice with great views. The beginning is a little steep, but then loops around and quite and easy hike from the bridge down.

Nice walking trail. Nice and easy. Looked beautiful with all the fall colors

A nice gentle slope and walk through the woods until the last 150m.

You have to walk across the stream, skipping over stones and logs. The last 35m is a scrambling rock climb, pretty treacherous, so unless you have good climbing skills and suitable footwear, don’t even try it. If it’s been freezing it’s a no-go as the rocks are quite smooth and impossible to scale. Nice cave with waterfall at the top following the climb.

Not a hard hike at all !

Nice walk but couldn’t get inside cave to see the photos posted.

awesome family trip, can do it in about an hour.

****ATTENTION****

As of October 30 Cecret Lake Trail is closed. In fact, the only road to the trail is closed for construction.

Hike October 28, 2018 It was a bit muddy and aspens have already fallen. A little wet as well. Crowed by 2:30 pm No bathroom facilities. Falls were worth the mud and wet feet. Go take this hike!

Went up with snowshoes but didn’t really need them. Awesome winter hike!

Great hike for sunset. A handful of switchbacks, then you have the option to go either left or right-ish. Keep an eye for signs, they are very easy to follow. The left-most route is flatter at first, giving you a chance to catch your breath if needed, but both ways have some decent elevation to them.

Saw some sand crickets hanging out in the path, some guys paragliding, a couple dogs, and like I said, that sunset! The bridge is cool and fun - it moves quite a bit. A nice quick hike. Could be challenging for young kids.

Snow, ice, and mud, but a great hike! Somehow I didn't make it to the falls, the trail just ended at the river. I'll go back in the summer and see where I went wrong. The road is closed so you have to hike in from the main road.

Great easy walk around the lake.

Great easy hike for anyone, especially for the kids.There was snow and ice on most of the trail this morning. Make sure to take gloves that’s something I was regretting not having with me.

Super easy, super crowded. Snow shoe this one. It’s not bad though. Falls are pretty cool.

The problem with Donut Falls and the reason for my 2 Star Rating is because it was as crowded as when you go to Disney Land waiting on your favorite ride on a Saturday and admission to Disney Land is Free for the first time ever......

Although I am exaggerating Donuts Falls was way too crowded for my tastes!

Lovely trail to see the fall colors, and the hike is easy/fairly flat with good tree cover and a stream and is dog friendly and wasn’t crowded at all.

Meh, not so easy with 4 kids...

This trail is closed through October 2018. I made the trip up yesterday, along with quite a few other hikers, only to find out it is temporarily closed.

Nice loop, hard at first due to the incline, but that does not last long. Well maintained trail and a cool bridge.

I enjoyed this shirt easy hike. I have not hiked for a long time and needed a starter hike like this one. The aspens were beautiful.
