on White Pine Lake Trail

12 hours ago

Challenging trail especially in the snow because some areas aren't very packed so you end up knee deep or more. Most people choose the Red Pine Trail over this one because it's a little shorter and a little less steep. This one is more peaceful because there were no other hikers just two skiers. I'll definitely try this one again when everything is thawed out more.

I love it here. Beautiful view. Got tough near the end, and the falls were frozen (3-17-18). Very pretty. Gorgeous hiking weather. Also, there is a sign where you see "St. Mary's Falls .2 miles" Turn around and you will see the switchbacks going up. I really think you have more of a hike than .2 miles!

Great trail and view. Most definitely harder then moderate for us. Took us 4 hours to get up and back at a slow pace.

on Red Pine Lake Trail

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

It’s a quick jaunt. Still a little muddy and slick in some places.

Hi Danielle. From the parking lot, you go on the path away from the springs. You walk that path as it forms a "u". keep going until you see the abandoned tunnel. after that, youll go a little more and see a trailhead on the right. The sign has St. Mary's falls on it. Have fun!

Pretty steep trail and very muddy which made it slippery.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Nicely snowpacked for the majority of the trail, just used microspikes and carried snowshoes which were helpful for the top near the lake and walking around the lake which was frozen and snow covered. Completed 3/11/18.

What an amazing trip up to Blanche today. The trail is hard packed all the way to the top. Snow shoes not needed to the lake but spikes are highly recommended. The sun was out and no wind. Even lugged up some ice fishing gear and landed 5 browns in only 20 min. Nothing above 10”. The action is fast due to lack of food right now I’m sure. The ice was about 4 feet deep and plenty safe. We head lumped early, but the trail was busy on our way down. Everyone was really respectful and nice and I was glad to see many people enjoying the amazing day. Happy trekking

Hi folks, I'm wondering if you can help me out. I'm confused about which dirt road to take. On one end of the parking lot, there are two options--one is called High Road or something, and the other is Lower Gold Camp. I walked a ways on each of these and didn't find the trailhead. I then tried the dirt road on the other end of the parking lot (directly opposite these two roads). I passed the turn for trail 622 on the right, but I had to turn around because it was getting dark. Was I on the right track? The dirt road made a near U-turn around some private homes and then continued upward. If I'd kept going, would I have found the trailhead on the left? Ugh. Thank you in advance for your help.

Went up this trail 3/4/18 after a really solid snowfall in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Trail visible the first mile and a half or so from others doing some trailblazing, but then everything from there was covered in 2-3 feet of snow. Had to trailblaze with the snow to my hips but so long as you're prepared for that after a big snowfall, you'll be fine! Absolutely beautiful trail even in the winter, everything covered in white. If hiking in deep snow, make sure to check avalanche reports, have correct gear and don't go alone.

Beautiful trail, hiked it last fall and will do it again!

Great trail!! We would definitely go back. At the top of the trail you get to switchbacks to get to the falls. This part is not marked and there are several offshoots in the area. Be on the lookout for the correct one to get to the falls. Beautiful scenery and nice hike with the dogs.

Awesome hike after a good snowfall. Could get away with hiking it with some good spikes. Didn’t need my snowshoes the entire time. The views were amazing at the top.

Beautiful hike although we started out to do Seven Bridges but couldn't find the trailhead. Nice uphill and vistas overlooking CS and Front Range. Waterfall was of course frozen and not much to see so end point was a bit disappointing, but hey, it's winter. Should have expected it. Will definitely return in the summer!

Great trail! Love this app, it helped to keep us on the correct trail, following the creek. April, I think you guys went left over the creek, we stayed on the trail to the right of the creek and made it to the falls! 6.8 miles!!

Loved this trail. Lots of beautiful scenery, and in late July the wildflowers were even more beautiful than the mountains! Ran into a moose sitting in the middle of the trail! It’s a bit of a challenge, but incredibly worth the effort!

Trail was muddy after the turn from the living room. Along the final climb spikes were very useful because of the hard ice up.

Still muddy. Gorgeous view. I expected natural rock formations as the furniture but it’s stacks of rocks in the form of chairs. A bit steep. Definitely a moderate trail.

Completed this hike on 2/3/18. This is always a great easy-moderate hike with great views of downtown SLC and plenty of wildlife. Lots of wind at the summit, but still worth it.

Beautiful Hike! Wear layers. MicroSpikes are very very very helpful. Allow 2-3 hours to get to the top. Lake frozen, but Sundial Peak dominates the scenery. Totally worth it!

trail is dry now. 2.14.18

So good! Awesome view and “seating” at the “living room”!!!

Hiked up in normal hiking shoes, but snow cleats would have been a better choice. This trail is so lovely even in the winter!

I was confused about whether the trail itself was 6 miles or whether it was 6 miles round trip from the parking lot (you walk for quite a ways on a dirt road before getting to the actual trail). Now, having done the hike, I can confirm that it's the latter. Hope this helps anyone else who is wondering!

Great morning hike. Somewhat muddy and slick this time of year.

Plenty of spider trails, choose wisely!

Love this hike! First time going and the scenery is beautiful! Wear your micro spikes or you’ll have a hard/funny time coming down ;)

Super muddy and slick today! More mud and snow than dirt. I wore Solomon hiking shoes and was fine, but regular sneakers will be soaking wet by the time your done. Gorgeous hike! Good workout.

Amazing hike! Went yesterday and trail was easily visible. Wore snow traction cleats and didn’t have a problem hiking to the end.
