Leavitt Meadow: Poore Lake and Secret Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Deep peace and winter photo opportunities abound on this leisurely exploration of an exceptionally scenic high meadow and a shapely, large lake. Highlighted by the meandering course of crystal clear West Walker River and surrounded by snowy peaks and ridges, lovely Leavitt Meadow spans 2 miles and is 0.5-mile wide. Investigating the unspoiled shoreline of mile-long Poore Lake is doable and recommended, although it will add 1 mile or so to the already lengthy journey. Once on this remote meadow, you can choose your own route and vary the length as energy and/or time dictates. By staying in Leavitt Meadow, you can bypass Secret Lake and Poore Lake and shave up to 3 miles from the trek, which is occasionally shared by cross-country skiers. Beginners will appreciate the flat terrain and all snowshoers will benefit from the obvious way, even when it’s snowing. You may have to factor in an extra 2.2 miles to get there if the road is not passable, but following snow-covered Highway 108 is charming and tranquil."

I did this hike with a good friend of mine years ago. I remember it was an easy short hikek to a beautiful lake. (Secret Lake). We camped at Leavitt Meadow for two days with our girlfriends and hiked in for another day by orselves to the lake. I remember drinking blackberry brandy and telling lies by the campfire. I plan on doing this hike again sometime soon.
