    The Snowbird Tram, Cecret Lake Trail via Albion Basin is a gorgeous point-to-point hike in the Snowbird and Alta Ski areas east of Salt Lake City. This trail is challenging when it comes to route finding. We recommend downloading a map ahead of time and having a phone or GPS with you to stay on route. Proper, supportive hiking shoes are necessary for this trail, and hiking poles can be a huge help to save your knees some strain on the descents. Overall, this trail is absolutely beautiful.
