[IMPORTANT PARKING NOTE: Due to extremely limited parking access at Cecret Lake/Catherine's Pass Trailheads and to reduce congestion on the Albion Basin Summer Road and in the upper Albion Basin parking areas, it is highly recommended that hikers park in the Albion Base Area parking lot and hike the Upper Albion Meadows Trail or ride the free shuttle provided by the Town of Alta on weekends and holidays] A wonderful family hike to beautiful alpine lake in the Little Cottonwood Canyons Albion Basin. This is a very short hike to a beautiful alpine lake in the Albion Basin region near Alta and Snowbird Ski Resorts. This area is very popular on summer weekends so parking may be difficult. Take the time to relax at the lake and take lots of photos of your family with the mountains as a backdrop.

Great hike. Kids loved it! Rocky and a little steep towards the end with a lot of cut backs but otherwise fairly easy hike. I did it with my 25 pound 2 year old on my back and I'm not in great shape. My 4 year old made it up by himself as well with little to no help. We went Oct. 9th 2017 later in the afternoon around 3:30. We got up right before the sun went over the mountain and it got cold real fast.
