Just came out from Roosevelt and Lane Lakes--fabulous trip. Easy/moderate hike in, totally clear of snow, but dramatic views of massive snowpack in higher elevations. Everything is green and blooming--fields of wild irises and wildflowers abound. Bring your bug spray for the meadows--mosquitoes are out! Bugs not too bad at the lakes. Crawdad fishing is great-bring a Trap and have fun! Bonus: the drive over Sonora Pass is jaw-dropping. Saw people sledding and ski tracks high up in the bowls!

I first made this hike in 2001 and never forgot it. The walk past the meadows is amazing. It's not a terribly challenging hike to Roosevelt, but definitely leave well before nightfall, as hiking this in the dark was not much fun.

We did the loop with views of the meadow on the way back. The trail is used for horseback riding excursions, we passed a group of 16 riding horses on the way to the lake. Needless to say there's horse poop along the trail. The lake was gorgeous!

Great. If you are headed to secret lake there are two routes, after you cross the bridge from the parking/campground head up the hill and you will come to a sign pointing left to secret lake 3miles and right to the medow that follows the water. If you follow the sign to go left its a lot of up and down but this route is shorter. If you follow the medow the first half of your trip is flat followed by a consistent climb up with a few switch backs making this way longer. We took the medow trail hiking out being that it's all downhill/flat from secret lake. As far as the lake it was a little hazy this summer (2016) and our katadyn vario frequently got clogged requiring a breakdown every 2 bottles. There wasn't much activity on the water but there are fish. If you like crawfish you are at the right place because there are thousands of them, just need fishing line and a slimjim. Best campsite is on the far side of the lake.

Beautiful hike along the river on the way to secret lake. Elevation gain was minimal, but the views were fantastic. Hiking along the river is beautiful. Great hike to get out and soak in the view of the eastern Sierras or to get to some nice trout fishing lakes. Also enjoyed cooling off with a swim in Secret Lake. Went in mid June and didn't see any snow this year. The free parking can fill up on the weekends.
