on Red Pine Lake Trail

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

Trail was pretty snow packed - I had coils on but you probably could have made it without. View at the top was unbeatable. Took me about 3 hours round trip!

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.

Had my first encounter with a black bear on this trail!

Pretty views! Awesome place!

Fantastic work out

I took this trail for a quick midday hike on my lunch break. Was not disappointed. The frozen waterfall was beautiful and melting a bit. I got to see some nice sized chucks of ice break off during my stop. It was still pretty snow/slush packed so I’m glad I brought my boot chains and poles.

I've done this hike 5 or 6 times and it's consistently great, although there are always plenty of other people and their dogs on the trail. The trail is a short scenic drive from downtown Moab, and the hike itself is only a mile each way without too much climbing. It's a beautiful place. The first time I did it I was intimidated by the cable and the ladder, but they are actually pretty easy. The trail is well marked with green paint on the rocks and a few cairns, but there are signs that a lot of people and dogs are wandering off the trail and tearing up the fragile soil. Please don't do that.

Amazing. One of my favorite arches in the area!!! Best part is that it’s outside the park so it’s free to hike there.

So pretty. The frozen waterfall was gorgeous! Wear spikes for sure.

Short but sweet hike, moderate uphill the majority of the way but worth it for the waterfall.

What an amazing hike! Very easy, short distance and enough variance in terrain we didn’t get bored! We brought our 30lb pup, he absolutely loved it and did great. Just one section with a metal rope, we carried him up. All other sections very do able for a dog to go around. Arches were gorgeous!

Hiked this on 23 Feb after 6" fresh snow. Crampons were a must. Frozen waterfall even prettier than expected.

short and sweet and awesome to see petroglyphs

Really loved this trail with my husband and doggo. I thought it was challenging enough to be fun and rewarding and I loved the arch as much as delicate arch honestly. There’s one section with a ladder where we had to pick up our pooch and one small climb where you’re holding onto a rope and using footholds, but it’s short and even a cautious creature like me could handle it. Almost no one on this trail!

Favorite peak in the Wasatch. The upper red pine lakes and the view of the ridge that divides BCC and LCC is insane. There is some boulder hopping/scrambling above the Maybird Lakes basin that was hard on the way out, but easier on the way back when you could easier scout your route. We saw a marten on the scrambling part! The last little bit is very steep but it looks more intimidating than it really is. Did this in mid July. Get an early start as it is long and there isn’t much shade after red pine lake.

Did this with my three year old. She loved the frozen waterfall. She thought it was Elsa's castle.

Great hike up the mountain. Gets a little icy and rocky toward the top, but the frozen waterfall was amazing!!

Gorgeous area ! Spectacular waterfall. It’s a must !!! I’ve hiked it a few times.

Great hike, awesome views and landscapes, great exercise. The hike wasn’t to bad, only five miles up and down, we really didn’t have any problem getting up there, except for exhaustion.
Anyway, great hike loved it!

Gorgeous hike. Worth it to hike to waterfall. This was my little border collie puppy, Koa first hike...so much fun. I recommend bringing water and a snack for yourself and dog. If you have micro spikes for your hiking boots bring them. There was on spot going back with ice where we had to slide down and I had to have my boyfriend catch me because I went down super fast.

Very gorgeous hike, serval mountain lion tracks all over today, all different sizes. Posted some pics of them above, including one picture with some blood spots in the snow... some mouse or rabbit had just been breakfast before we got there...

Really cool trail, but it is very icy right now. You need good hiking boots or yaktrax or something to give you grip. We slipped several times.
Very pretty though!

Great easy hike that’s good for anyone of all ages. Out and back in about 3 hours and it was a leisurely pace. Spikes were helpful today in some parts but given the weather you could have made it without.

Easily one of my favorite hikes. It doesn’t take a long time to get there, it’s not too hard, there are lots of places to hammock when you get there, and the lake is so beautiful and clear! I love going up there to relax and enjoy the pretty view :)

Great hike. the frozen waterfall was awesome.

Amazing views! This was a bit more difficult in the snow and the trails were icy in spots. Need to wear good shoes/boots to accommodate the snow/ice

Nice hike. Trail was icy and snowy for most of the hike. No wildlife today.

This was a wonderful hike, beautful scenery and waterfall. The snow covers 90% of the trail, but the footing is safe and trails are clear.

Snowshoed with the full moon. Wonderful night. So beautiful seeing the moon in the meadow before the lake.
