The White Pine trailhead is on the south side of the road, 5.5 miles up Little Cottonwood Canyon and 0.7 miles below Snowbird. The turnoff for the parking area is just after a turn and is easy to miss. Start slowing down just after the "White Pine Slide Area" sign. An asphalt path leads from the parking area to a footbridge across the stream.

Perfect day. The aspens were beautiful and the weather perfect. Great hike, consistently uphill but not too difficult.

The views are especially beautiful right now because of the fall colors. The view looking down the canyon into the Salt Lake Valley is as beautiful as any where on earth! We saw a bull and cow moose next to the trail.
Perfect temperature. Perfect day!

I enjoyed most of the hike, though I was underwhelmed with the actual lake which is pretty dry this time of year. Not nearly as scenic as Lake Blanche, Twin Lakes, Lake Mary, or many others in the canyons. I did, however, very much enjoy exploring the area around the lake, so I would allow for plenty of time at the top. The trail is well maintained, though the water and fallen leaves made it a little slick in areas. Great view of the canyon along the way. Saw a handful of moose right along the trail not far from the trailhead. This was my first moose sighting and it was probably a little more up close and personal than I would have liked, but it was pretty darn cool.

Very nice hike. Fairly steep for most of way out but beautiful scenery on the way up and down. Saw two moose on the trail so that made it a great hike for this Florida boy!
