A great 1 or 2 day backpacking adventure! My wife and I did a 2 day trip 20 years ago and I just took 2 of my kids (wife was nice enough to stay back with the younger kids). Great wildflowers and not too difficult with a pack. Don't count on fish for dinner as they seem to be picky. This area seems surprisingly popular for fishing 4 miles in.

Backpacked to this beautiful spot. Worth it.

Made a trip up here before the snow really starts to fly. This is a great hike and the cabin is in good shape.

Backpacked this trail with a group of 12, ranging in age from 11 yrs old to 50, and was a nice variety of difficulty for all. Enjoyed the campground and cooler/cleaner air. Plenty of trees for setting up hammocks as half the group opted to do that. Plan on 2 hrs each way. Many wild flowers, but a couple weeks sooner would've been better. Overall, great hike.

You go straight up, the entire time, you have been warned. Beautiful and well worth the hike! The cabin is awesome and would be fun to use one day. You do need to be in good shape to do this hike. I say that because the last part of the trail is dangerous to traverse especially if you are low on energy! We used all 4 liters of water and would take a bit more the next time we go. My Wife killed it on this trail, but it was still difficult. This hike will make you feel good.

What a fantastic backpacking trail to take four young teenaged grandkids. We had a wonderful two days and a great hike. The weather is fantastic in July, I was even too warm for sleeping!

As others have mentioned, the trail is overgrown, especially near the top. Coming down, the steep incline and loose trail conditions make it hard to find stable footing.

Only one hill on the way back but otherwise an easy and beautiful hike. Surprised at all the wildflowers. Lake is really pretty.

This was a good, moderate hike in length and difficulty. The flowers were beautiful! Would be a fun place to hike in and camp overnight.

Awesome hike! Did on a weeknight and had the trail primarily to ourselves. Not too tough, great views and great little campgrounds near White Pine Lake. Definitely need to do it again and stay overnight!

Absolutely stunning trail and spectacular views. We will be doing this hike again soon.

Good hike for those looking for a mix between easy but worthwhile. Great hike to go on with friends. Gone about three separate times myself. Never a dull moment.

Steady incline and amazing views of Pineview. Make sure to bring lots of water for you and your fur friend as there is no creeks or springs. This will be fun to snowshoe too!

Only did 9 miles of it. I was pressed for time. Saw bobcat paw prints. Get up the switch backs quick, limited shade.

nice trail but almost dead, because of mother nature is closing the trail...

The wildflowers on this trail are beautiful! The lake itself is a great payoff from this fairly short and sweet hike. This trail is one of the gems of Logan Canyon!

This is a Goldilocks Trail - just the right distance, hard but not too hard, and a great mix of sun and shade. But most of all it was the wildflowers. Oh the wildflowers. Just breathtaking.

Awesome quick day hike/run on our way from SLC to bear lake and beyond. The wild flowers are beautiful! Reminded us of Alta meets the Tusher mountains. Saw some families back packing would be a great long day/over night trip for kids. We were pleased with this adventure it was Beautiful!

This was a great over night for us. My 5 and 2 year old girls loved it. Flowers of all colors everywhere. Peaks above lake are awesome. Not a lot of bugs. I’d give it a 4 if the lake was one you wanted to jump into after a hike and if the trail was less busy. When we hiked in at 6 pm it wasn’t bad but the campground was busy and hiking out the trail was very busy. Still probably my favorite hike in logan canyon.

This is a great hike for families. Our 8 & 6 year olds did it no problem. Easy trail and amazing scenery. Definitely one of our favorites.

Awesome trail. $7 to park at Tony Grove Lake, but well worth the 90 minute hike to White Pine Lake. Our Fitbits had us at about 4.05 miles from parking lot to white pine lake.

The trail wasn’t busy at all, white pine has a handful of dispersed camping sites near the lake. Seemed like a great place to hike out, set up camp and enjoy some peace and quite for a weekend, or however long!

Excellent hike taking about 90 minutes in and a little more out. The steepness of the back portion of the hike is a little challenge but overall it is a beautiful experience.

Excellent for kids. Took my 8YO, wished that I had my 6YO as well. You give up a fair amount of elevation over the last 1.5-ish miles, which means on the hike back out you start with a pretty good climb.

The fee at the trailhead is $7/day and on a weekend they are there collecting.

If you go on a summer Friday or Saturday plan on sharing the trail with multiple scout troops and horse parties.

Did this trail yesterday. It was the second time I've done it. 1000' / mile. It took 2 hours up and 50 mins down. It's a hard climb but very worth it.

One of best hikes I have ever done in Utah

If you are an experienced hiker you will find this a pretty easy hike. The only significant elevation is at the beginning and then as you descend to the lake then ascend back. My GPS tracked exactly 4 miles to the lake with a little campground exploration. The views are stunning, birds singing everywhere, but really, if you lived in a place like this, you'd sing too!
We back packed in and it took 2 hours with several stops for pictures, a blister first aid, and drinks. Busy trail but except for the horse poop, it's very pristine. Hikers are taking care to keep it clean. If you come later in the evening on a weekend you might have a hard time finding a camp spot. We arrived at 6:30 and there were several to choose from. We saw only two other groups. But by dusk the place was packed.
Really no firewood unless you go hunt for it and even then a hatchet will be your friend. We found plenty, but it took four of us to go search away from the area both night and morning.
Hardly any bugs, that may change as the summer progresses.
Honestly doesn't get much better than this.
Pack out whatever you pack in!

Great!! Very beautiful hike with more flat hike. Hardest part was the return going back up from the lake, but after that pretty moderate in difficulty.

Beautiful start to finish. Steady uphill grade to the ridge crosses several alpine streams with spectacular Rocky Mountain Vistas. Getting used to the altitude was my biggest challenge. Over the ridge and a series of switchbacks down the other side followed by a steady downhill grade to the lake. Ridiculously beautiful mountain setting for White Pine Lake. Because this location is heavily visited, fire wood is a challenge to find. Suggest backpack food. Caught several brook Trout. Tons of fun fishing. Next morning body was was good with the altitude which made hike out of there much better. Don't underestimate this hike. By the time you get back to Tony's Grove Lake you will be thrashed - but glad you went.

I backpacked this with a scout troop this week (6/9/18). The hike was snow free (except for a couple tiny patches, relatively easy (the last few hundred feet is steep), and beautiful. The fishing was slow for me but one of our scouts did very well. We saw moose and deer. Excellent hike.
