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.
