Snow is really deep right now (almost knee deep in some areas) and we couldn't make it to the top because it was too steep and dangerous with the snow, ice, and rocks. Would recommend waiting until summer for this one!

The walk from the Albion parking lot to the actual trailhead was pretty uneventful. You follow a road that winds through a ski resort. It adds a lot of time to the actual trail (so plan accordingly), but once you hit the cecret trailhead the hike is short, elevated, and fun. Great spot. Being from out of town, I would've loved to see the alpine lake in the spring or summer!

Some snow on the trail today, a little bit of ice but not much. Beautiful drive from SLC and the snow made surrounding peaks very beautiful.

First part of the trail is walking up a ski slope which is covered in the most beautiful wild flowers. Part of the trail is under construction. Lake was beautiful and there was a moose hiding beneath the trees. Definitely hike up the mountain behind the lake for some gorgeous views.

Not my favorite hike this season. Lots of people and construction.
