Absolutely gorgeous. Easy hike to the falls but essentially a rock climb if you want to go further. Worth it though!

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

camping

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

I found that the trail wasn't clearly marked at the final push. When the trail becomes less apparent, you want to scramble up the rocks about 100 ft. This scramble doesn't appear to be that difficult, but a fall would be dangerous (Class 2); however, if you continue on the lower path below the ridge line, you are forced to climb up a steep, loose rock area, or if you prefer a rock climb. This area, although not hard is probably a 5.6. If you chose this route, if you were to fall, serious injury or death would occur. Again, not hard but something to be cognizant of. Overall, I found the hike beautiful, and the hiking moderate in steepness and difficulty. Great views. Done in summer. Exposed most of the way, so wear sunscreen. We started early in the morning.

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.

Easy walk. The waterfall is almost all dried up in August. This was our first time here and it was ok. Good walk if you only have 15-20min...I would imagine that Spring is the best time to see the waterfall.

It was a fun little hike. It's a little weird to walk through a neighborhood to get to the hike, but we all still really enjoyed it.

hiking

Beautiful trail for wildflowers and some great views of the basin. One of my favorite spots so far in the canyons! Originally had come up here no expecting to hike this section, but changed my plans due to lack of parking in the upper lots and about 50 people in line for the shuttle...would rather be walking than waiting! Glad I got to see this!

Super quick, 5 min hike to a fun, simple waterfall. Spent the next 2 hours hiking up much higher. many more waterfalls and fantastic views of the South side of the canyon.

It was hard from the begining, we got lost because there was no signs indicating where the wsterfall was but we found it and it was so worth it!!!

super easy loop part of it is wheelchair accessible. The river is dry but it's fun to walk through the granite river bed. Good mountain biking trail that starts here too.

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.

A great hike. It's very rocky. But once you make it to the waterfall, it's totally worth it.

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.
