Visit Cecret Lake, which is not a secret in Utah.

The hike to Cecret Lake is family-friendly and has a 440-feet elevation gain on a 1-mile hike to the lake. There are markers to help hikers make their way to the lake without getting lost. The switchbacks are a bit more strenuous, but overall the hike and views are worth the effort. You will see wildflowers, wildlife and enjoy the crisp mountain air. Along the way, hikers can take breaks and rest on the rocky outcroppings and take photos with awesome natural backdrops. When arriving at Cecret Lake, visitors enjoy watching the salamanders that swim in the lake.

This hiking trail is about 2-miles round-trip. Keep in mind that no dogs are allowed. Visitors cannot swim in the lake, and there is no camping within 200 feet of the trails and water sources in the area. Parking spots at the trailhead are limited, and no parking is allowed along the road nearby, so plan accordingly. Carpools are a good option if you are traveling in a group. If not, be sure to arrive early in the day. On busy weekends, a free shuttle is often available from Alta to the Cecret Lake trailhead. This trail is amazing during wildflower season in July and August. Early October is scenic, too, once the leaves change colors in the canyon.
