Leavitt Meadows to Secret Lake

The Leavitt Meadows trail-head is right off Hwy 108, just 4 miles west of Pickel Meadows Marine Base on the east side of Sonora Pass. A relatively easy loop to Secret Lake offers hikers shade, pretty views of the meadows, West Walker River and surrounding peaks, plus a refreshing swimming break at the lake. Increase your hike by an additional two miles return, by taking the fork at Secret Lake to Poore Lake.

We took 5 kids on an overnight to Secret Lake. It was beautiful and quiet. Great spots to make camp. Swimming and sling-shots at the lake. Hike was more difficult than the ranger suggested. Not much "flat", mostly up!
