Great trail! Climbs almost 1700 ft so your horse needs to be in shape. This is a popular equestrian trail, however experienced riders recommend as there are some technical spots on the trail with large rocks the horses must navigate over.

Loved this hike! Not hard at all. Pretty views when you reach the top. Rocky in some parts but not bad.

Absolutely beautiful trail! Hiked it today and only saw about a half dozen other people. Heavily used by equestrians so there is some horse poop to negotiate around. Remember to give way and stop moving if you pass them on the trail. Don't stop at the top of the final hill. If you keep following the trail downhill to the intersection another 1/4th a mile you reach a beautiful meadow. Will say I believe the trail signs over the all trail distance. This definitely felt closer to 12 miles for us.

Whipple Trail via the Equestrian Trail beginning at the Equestrian Campground located at the western edge of Pine Valley Recreational Area and ending at the Whipple Trail Saddle. The Whipple Trail Saddle is a clearing with many manzanita bushes and a great spot to rest the horses and eat some lunch. The Full Whipple Trail extends further with more switchbacks and a beautiful grassy valley but we turned around here as the trail from this point, although still passable by horseback, is much more steep along the mountain top switchbacks and we had a summer thunderstorm rolling into the valley. I have always wanted to ride in Pine Valley and this ride was everything I hoped it would be. The Equestrian Trail is a very beautiful easygoing trail, I recorded 2.3 miles from the equestrian campground to the Whipple Trailhead which took just under 50 minutes, one way, there and back is a pleasant ride with new solid bridges at two of the water crossings that were recently installed by the Back Country Horseman of Southwest Utah, our horses crossed them easily for their first times. The Whipple Trail is moderate for horses with 2 switchbacks near the top that have difficult footing over and around boulders, you may want to dismount and lead them through.

My wife, dog Thor, and I did this as our first overnight backpacking trip. Was a tiring trip up carrying gear so stopped at the stream a few miles from the top and made camp for the night. Hiked up a bit more in the morning before having to head back down to get home. Not as much shade as you'd think for most of the trail but the temps weren't too bad. Good hiking shoes needed for rocky terrain. Mosquitoes weren't bad, flies were the biggest nuisance. Beautiful scenery. Saw deer on the way up and down. Thor tried making friends with a porcupine in the middle of the night and took a dozen quills in the face :(. He's fine but if bringing pets be weary of that. Got chilly at night, probably around 50-60 degrees. Trail was easy to follow. Great memories as our first trip and would love to get back and check out more of the area.

Great trail, took us about 6 hours including some breaks. Would definitely recommend bug spray and hiking boots. I did the trail in my trainers and my ankles took quite a beating since the trail’s very rocky and uneven. The way up is a lot less strenuous than I would have expected given you gain 870ish meters, but the way down takes much longer than I thought (about 3 hours up and 2.5 hours down). But overall a very nice trail with lots of great views and a welcome escape from the desert and the sun! (NB the trail is 20k (12 miles) not 17.1)

Overall, great trail. There were several people hiking as I was trail running. There is still some snow near the top but you can get around it.

Still lots of snow and Ice on the top but it was not too cold. Took me from 8am- 6pm the snow slowed me up a bit and cover most of the trail. Logged almost 16 miles . A few creeks had to be passed

You get some wonderful views of Pine Valley as you hike up to the saddle which is as far as we went. I had kids six and almost 9 with me and they were able to do the hike pretty easily. We started early around seven and it was beautiful but it would get warm later in the afternoon though there is pretty decent coverage on the trail from the canopy

Ok so first of all...when you get to the Pine Valley sign once you start the trailhead...GO LEFT! For the Whipple Trail. The views along the way- the best part of the trail. Once you get to the saddle though, very anticlimactic and I was slightly disappointed. Switch backs are slightly intense with a decent and steady elevation gain. Definitely got my attention :) also...bug spray or cover yourself in TeaTree oil cuz holy bugs that bite. However, if you want to trek thru stunning greenery, see lots of nature and waterfalls...do yourself a favor and GO RIGHT! This hike is stunning green, cooler temps and views to make you forget your in Southern Sunny Utah. But go at the beginning of the Spring/early Summer so there is water for you to see. No really good marked trails but great to explore. Either way. You’re gonna see some stunning views. Enjoy this hike! If you start early the temps are low but they get nice and toasty once you get going and into the afternoon.

The Whipple Trail ends in the saddle according to this? We made this trip with our one year old on my wife’s back and it was really easy. Due to lack of daylight left we only made it to the saddle but it was a nice little trek. Definitely plan to do again and go down to the valley.

May 2017 backed packed to the meadow, you cross two ridges on the way. After the first you go down to a stream that would be a nice place to camp on its own. Before crossing the second ridge the trail is rough, we experienced a number of patches of snow. Upon crossing this ridge that includes a period of near flat ground the trail makes a steep decent to the meadow. This part of the trail had large batches of snow on some of the down slopes. We camped in Whipple Valley and day hiked to North Valley, great location if there while the water is. This will go on my annual hiking list.

Great trail. Great day hike!

Features plenty of switchbacks and the elevation changes are significant. You really have to do this hike before august if you want water. Once the snow melts the water is gone. Definitely recommend doing the full loop through to the brown trail so you can see all of St George. The golden time to do this hike is from late May to mid July. Once you actually reach the whipple meadow be prepared for tons of water. Bring a pair of sandals and keep your boots dry or neoprene socks if you don't mind the water.
