Beautiful easy hike

great area. multiple trails that allow many route options. i hiked the three tree butte route but couldnt find the trailhead after hitting the forest service road, but that was probably due to the snow. the first 2 miles is a steady incline and snowshoes will probably be needed after november. will return soon to check out the other trail routes!

Easy going bike trail with beautiful scenery.

I opted to ride my bike both ways instead of taking the shuttle back up. I was told by the people who worked at Lookout Pass where I bought the trail pass where to stop before the path got too rocky to bike back up without some trouble.

Easy ride down....fairly easy ride back up.

Brought bike light and headlamp—didn’t need the headlamp. Brought warm gear to go through the longer tunnels because they get cold inside.

Hiked on July 4. I would rate it easy to moderate. The hike along the state line trail is great. There is a bit of a decline to get down to the lakes (which you then climb back up). Plenty of huckleberry bushes along the state line trail. The access road is in fair shape. Suitable for most if not all vehicles. Took about an hour once off I-90 to get to the trailhead.

Very scenic and a nice day hike!

Went 2.0 miles 95% up hill with not a lot to look at. Trail was well marked and maintained. I would not go on this hike again.

Beautiful scenery but very steep trail! We turned around after 2.8 miles of a steady uphill climb nearly the entire way. The trail is very overgrown in places so we had to push branches out of our way quite often. The trail starts out in a dense forested area and then you reach a ridge with incredible views. Very hard trail but also very beautiful.

We set up a campsite near the head of the trail. It was beautiful out there and we were having a wonderful time until it started to get dark. We had built a fire and were winding down when my dog growled at the forest behind us. We looked back and scanned the forest. There was a large adult mountain lion standing about 200 feet from our camp, staring directly at us. We stood up and stared at it, not daring to look away in case it moved. We backed slowly to our car and saw it turn around and go up the mountain away from us, so we quickly took down our camp and put out the fire and drove away. So this area must be part of the lion's territory, which may not be a problem during the day as they are nocturnal but still be cautioned. I wouldn't recommend camping around here unless you're prepared to face the lion. Nonetheless it is a beautiful area and the hike is very nice.

There are multiple trails that branch out from the White Pine Campground, including those around Three Tree Butte (easy 3-4-mile hikes) and Bald Mountain (a longer 16-mile hike). We took the trail around Three Tree Butte, and we tramped through a lot of snow and water (multiple streams and rivers were flooded). Luckily we had waterproof boots and gaiters. We didn't encounter anyone on the trail, but it was fairly early in the season (early April). I would recommend going a little bit later in the season.

Awesome trail. Even in June it was pretty darn chilly in the tunnels and rained on us before the sun finally came out to warm us up.

Stunningly beautiful biking trail. This trail is mildly graded and well maintained, suitable for almost anyone that can ride a bike.

You go through tunnels, over tressels, and through valleys. The views are awesome. There are historical signs and viewpoints all along this trail. It is just a great casual ride.

Expect heavy usage during the summer, don't plan on riding fast. People will be riding casually often in groups.

There are restrooms, no cell service, and no vendors. Bring all your food with you, a paid entrance ticket, a helmet, and a light for the tunnels.

We had a lot of fun as a family! Everyone was friendly and we got loaded on the bus the minute we got to the bottom. We'll definitely go again!!

Very nice easy going and great scenery. I only complaint is the cost to do it and the cost to ride back in the bus.

It is a good hike, but there isn't really a peak. The trees clear near the "top" and give a good view of other slopes nearby. But then you go back into the trees and ends by connecting to another trail going either down or up away from the original trail. I chose to go up and it takes you alongside an ATV/motorbike path. I followed this new trail for 2 miles and got bored of it. (So there might be a peak, but after about 4.5/5 miles I turned back).

The trail is part of the history of the Pacific Northwest, being part of a project to make trade flow more easily from the interior places of the Old Oregon Territory to the Pacific Coast businesses in California and Oregon State. I good beginners trail. It was the first trail that my fiancée and I hiked together.

Beautiful day for a ride through the tree tops. The tunnels were cool and the trellises had a nice breeze. Our day of amazing views could have lasted forever. Bring water and some snacks so you too can enjoy a day of nature and man's work in the woods.
