To Hike Map

Went up last week, tons of snow and quite a bit of ice on the lower parts of the trail. Sunset was beautiful and it took 1 1/2 hrs to get up. (we were going really fast) plan for just over 2 hrs and bring spikes!

I love going up the side of the mountain for a good challenge. The trails all seem to lead to the same place but aren't marked. Beautiful view

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.

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

Pretty steep trail and very muddy which made it slippery.

Great trail! We have an issue finding trails where my pup can come that aren’t an hour out. So this was a great beautiful local hike for us that we’ll do many more times! It doesn’t have a super clear ending. But we joked about 6 Miles total. Going back and forth with the creek was great. We went with a little melting snow, I’d imagine spring and fall are beautiful!

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

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!

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.

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!

Awesome views. Have done trails between Brighton and solitude, donut falls and this one. Definitely an awesome workout with great reward

took my pups up during a storm, beautiful views, trail easily disappears during thr winter so its easy to get turned around in the evening hours but still a great hike.

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.

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.

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”!!!

it's really windy don't wear baseball caps. took my two chihuahuas they did surprisingly well. great for most age groups. easy to spend 2 hours without realizing it so make sure you bring water.

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

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

Plenty of spider trails, choose wisely!

It was an awesome hike. Still has some deep snow in different areas of the hike so it forces you to keep focused on your footing. Bring water and snacks and it makes for a great hike. I'm sure it's beautiful from spring to fall.

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.

The trail was so beautiful today. We hiked up then missile shedded down.

We got on the trail around 9 AM...only a few other cars in the parking lot. Trail is/was mostly visible due to previous skiers/snowshoers. Attempted to follow trail using AllTrails App, ended up cutting fresh trail for a while. Didn't make it the whole way up because the weather changed and snow was falling pretty hard. Visibility was low at points. Will be attempting again in a month or so.

beautiful hike pretty intense!

Couple of icy patches but great view

Great hike with full views of the valley. A little muddy this time of year from the melted snow, but nothing to worry about. Great for dogs as well.
