Good elevation hiking here for those who don't want to carry much gear. Your driving option requires a 4 wheel drive, loose, rocky, 2 to 3 moving water crossings, possible snow. Drive into Leavitt Lake, follow lake to the left and around into cove area on the right for some nice campsites away from the water for our leave no trace ethics and the people. there are certainly more crowds here due to the driving access. You can day hike to Latopie Lake to the north or head south and upwards towards the PCT junction for some nice views. If you want to hike along a 10.5k+ ridge top with views in all directions then the PCT south from Sonora pass trail head is a great hike either as a partial loop hike of about 8 miles to latopie or a one way hike 7+ miles down the PCT into Leavitt Lake. Warning, Trail starts at 9,600 feet you must be somewhat acclimated for this hike as it is almost all above 10k. Easy trail but the elevation can make this hike difficult if you are not fully prepared. Great views of the Hoover Wilderness await following this portion of the PCT south.Show more

The eastern side of the loop traverses higher rocky country side until reaching Secret Lake, and is a little more challenging than the western branch, but still relatively easy. The eastern branch of the loop also has lower traffic than the western branch. The western branch of the loop runs through Leavitt Meadow, a highly trafficked trail leading to popular backpacking area at more distant lakes. The trail is also quite popular for horseback riders, so expect to share the trail. Show more
