[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]

Very beautiful hike. The steep switchbacks from the lake were pretty scary for me (I’m afraid of heights) but I made it up! At the top of the switchbacks there are beautiful views all around. It feels a lot safer at the top than you do at timp. Pretty challenging if you’re not okay with steep but not a long hike at all! Saw a cute bunny on the trail and a couple marmots.

Quite the climb on snowshoes about Secret Lake. Very steep! Great view of Alta and American Fork Canyon and is just above Pittsburgh Lake

don't think this is the actual devil's castle hike (the one that gets you to the top) but if you value life, don't go to the top! that aside, one of the greatest hikes of my life. and someone built a stone building type thing on the saddle so yeah
