Backpacked up and slept over night under a tarp. Very peaceful and quiet up there at night. Fishing was great.

Hiked this trail on a Saturday morning at about 10:00. It was a bit busy, but didn't take away from the beauty of the hike. Amazing views higher up the trail. It was pretty hot in the exposed areas, so bring lots of water! Steady incline all the way up. We had to take lots of breaks. The lake is so clean and refreshing. We swam for about an hour and didn't want to get out! Such an amazing place to be.

Moderately difficult hike but absolutely worth it for the beautiful/ secluded lake.

Long but relatively easy hike up until the last mile. We brought all our gear for camping and it took us 2 hours 40 minutes. Beautiful Lake to camp on, the openness of the area around the lake is stunning and worth exploring.

2 hours and 40 minutes to the lake with all our camping gear. Gorgeous lake and the area around it is worth exploring. Looking forward to late spring when the lake is full

My husband and I didn't love this hike. The trail, although beautiful at some parts, is SO ROCKY! Red Pine was so much better, but it's worth doing once. The lake was really low, but it's very clear and we were able to see the fish swimming. It was very quiet the entire way, not a lot of people. Total distance was 11 miles.

hiking

I loved this trail. It was chilly in the morning and perfect in the early afternoon. The Red Pine trail is CRAZY busy but once we got onto Maybird trail we saw 3 other people coming down who spent the night up there. I would rate this as a moderate hike and honestly I would do this hike over and over again. It was beautiful! The rocks by the lake have a ton of bees which was mildly annoying but it's nature, what are you going to do. An amazing view of Pfeifferhorn which was great to look at from the hammock.

One of my favorite Hikes in the State! Definitely need a High Profile Vehicle to get to the Trail head, but this also makes it less crowded, we only ran into 4 people on the Trail on a Saturday Afternoon, absolutely gorgeous and a must for any Hiker

Nice trail, it gets fairly steep for the last half mile or so. It was rewarding. We camped up by the lake, a sign said that fires are not allowed here, but they are allowed at white pine lake.

We weren't expecting this hike to be as long as it was. From the trail head, it says 4 miles to white pine lake. Its actually 5 and the last mile is the hardest. The first 3.5 miles are pretty easy going and really pretty. After that it gets really steep and the views start opening up. At around 5 miles you see the view of the lake. The sun was setting so we weren't able to go down to the lake, but it was an enjoyable hike, especially as the sun set over the mountains. Bring plenty of water and headlamps if you decide to do it later. Pretty untrafficed when we did it.

Did anyone find a woman's coral windbreaker along the trail? My Black Diamond Alpine Start hoodie fell off my pack on the way down on Sunday. So sorry for accidentally leaving this behind in this pristine wilderness. I hope some finds it and carries it out and either gets some good use out of it, or contacts me please please please! (email me: kelsadkins@gmail.com)

As far as the hike goes - did this hike on Sunday 8/14 for the first time. The climb up Jacob's Ladder is steep, but thankfully we started at 6am before the sun came up, and that is for sure the way to do it. It was cool, shaded, and the time flew by quickly. As soon as you reach the Draper Ridge the cirque comes into view and the terrain becomes more varied; think - giant granite boulders scattered across grassy meadows sprinkled with pine trees...aka Heaven! This hike is truly gorgeous, one of a kind! The cirque is incredibly stunning. The scramble along the summit ridge was not as daunting as I thought it would be, Pfeifferhorn was more technical and longer than this one, in my opinion. We reached the summit a little before 10am. It was cool in the sun, with no wind, very exposed up there, so be careful. Be sure to soak up the views od Utah valley, SL valley, Timp, Box Elder Peak, Broads Fork Twins, and all the beautiful Wasatch ridgelines. We hiked down in 3 hours, and like other's have mentioned going down Jacob's Ladder is rough - by far the hardest part of the hike for me, my knees were feeling it. I brought 3.5 liters of water, and only drank about 2.5. A lot of people were hiking up Jacob's Ladder around 12-1pm, when we were coming down, which I think is nuts because it's south-facing and hot as hell. If I was hiking up at that time I would have needed more than 3.5 liters of water.

Awesome hike!
The views are beyond spectacular and you may encounter some mountain goats along the way. We passed a few people along the lower portion up to Red Pine, but after that we only encountered one other group.

This is an amazing hike! It was much harder than I had anticipated, but the summit was spectacular as well as the cirque below. I took 4 liters of water and it wasn't close to enough for me (I'm a pretty big guy though). Just about everyone we ran across was out of water toward the end as well. Just to reiterate what has been stated below, do not use Google Maps to try to get to the Jacob's Ladder trail head.

3 star for late summer hike, the lake is half empty. literally 15ft drop in water level. this is extremely rocky trail. I'll probably come back early spring next time, when snow is still on the ground. campfires are allowed, something I'll keep in mind next time as well.
