on Red Pine Lake Trail

3 days ago

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

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

Great views! Very doable hike- plenty of switchbacks!

Great hike! Lots of snow and ice, so definitely need micro spikes.

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

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.

The trail is hard packed all the way to the falls. Spikes come in handy for the final accent. Really cool icicles on the falls right now.

Great winter walk. We started out with snowshoes and after several yards we decided the trail was packed well enough to go without.

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”!!!

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.

Good hike, but it is steep and in early February there was a lot of ice and snow toward the top

Beautiful covered in snow. Easy hike with spikes on (lots of ice). A bit windy too.

Awesome short hike. Beautiful scenery most everywhere. I hiked from the Spruces Campground for an extra long walk through the quiet forest. The last stretch is treacherous during an icy winter; bring boot spikes. Big difference during the winter? Hardly ANY traffic, especially early in the mornings.

Plenty of spider trails, choose wisely!

A good short hike that ends with a beautiful view in multiple directions. Be prepared to walk a ways up a snowy road to the trailhead if you go during the winter time.

Great trail. Some icy spots. Beautiful waterfall in a cave at the end.

pretty good hike there is snow and ice in top but ice cleat or micro spike will work prefect. great work out.

Whoa! Amazing climb! Very steep - mostly muddy and sludge today. Incredible view of the valley!!!

Only need microspikes at the moment. It did get pretty windy towards the top so dress warmly. Pretty chill pace since I haven't hiked much the last few months and I developed a blister on my heel. 2 hours up, 1.5 down

Easy hike with just snow boots. If you want to go all the way up to the waterfall, spikes would be a good idea. Went on a Sunday afternoon and it was not crowded at all. Very pretty and scenic.

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.
