We didn't make it all the way to the top since it was getting dark, but it was a nice trail. We've hiked a lot of trails in UT and CO, and I'd call this trail easy to moderate as this has a bit of an elevation gain if you're wanting to take a quick hike. But if you want to take your time, it is a pretty nice trail. They say if you come in mid to late July, the wildflowers are spectacular.

the trail name is actually Cecret Lake (not Secret Lake). the trail is very fun and short, I would recomend it to any one who is a little overweight and wants a short trail with a big reward.
