newcomer/beginner hike in beautiful little cottonwood canyon

It's no secret that Cecret Lake remains the gem of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Nestled atop a glacially carved mountain basin, this sparkling destination is popular with many who are thrilled by the spectacular high country, and those who are enchanted by its wildflowers. This hike is open to anyone but is geared toward introducing new people to the Wasatch Mountain Club, or to hiking as an activity. There will be two organizers on this trip to make sure nobody gets behind, and to help with any questions or concerns. If the gate is still closed due to snow conditions, I will choose another easy hike in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
