[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] Begin at the Cecret Lake parking area or connect from the Albion Meadows Trail. This old mining road switchbacks through lush meadows to a view above Cecret Lake and continues into upper Albion Basin.

There is no longer a free shuttle to the parking. Options for this hike are; park at alta and hike the Albion trail to the germania pass trailhead which adds 1 mile but is free, pay 6 dollars to access the summer road to park at catherine or Cecret, or pay 10 per person to ride the ski lift to catherine pass trailhead. The hike was gorgeous full of summer flowers. I didn't finish the hike. I started too late and it was too hot with very little shade, but I will complete it next week with an earlier start.
