The road is closed 3 miles from the trailhead. Me and two buddies decided to hike in anyways, and it was tough. The road was washed out in several places pretty bad, hence the closure. We're in our early twenties and were dying just getting to the trailhead due to carrying stuff to camp for several days, which then got significantly worse once we reached the actual trail. The whole area has burned also. This made the trail extremely difficult to follow in places.By the lake there are a few spots that didn't burn, but 90% of the area has. We saw elk tracks and caught 3 brook trout in the lake, but that was about it as far as animals. We also woke up to a few inchea of snow, so we waited for it to melt and then hiked out a day earlier than planned. The whole place has a pretty creepy feeling due to the lack of insects or birds. I would give it a few years to grow back before doing it again. Just a heads up.

BLM land, drove this while looking for free camping sites on BLM land. Basically upland sparce pine forest. It offered solitude and free camping away from the crowds.

Beautiful Drive. We have a upgraded Toyota Tacoma and some of the spots were tight, but overall a beautiful secluded drive.

Alot more scrambling then we planned on. Take more water then we did take your Binoculars it has and enjoy some amazing views.

Great trail, if by "The only Redwood Tree found in Utah", you actually mean "The only creepy, abandoned, Hantavirus-infested-shack in the middle of nowhere", then yes, you will enjoy it. Especially at night.

The Whipple Trail ends in the saddle according to this? We made this trip with our one year old on my wife’s back and it was really easy. Due to lack of daylight left we only made it to the saddle but it was a nice little trek. Definitely plan to do again and go down to the valley.

Definitely wouldn't consider this hard. Just a few switchbacks right at the start then it's pretty level at the top. Great views in every direction pretty much the whole hike and it's short so why not?

Amazing and challenging continuous climb from Oak Grove Campground to the mountain ridge above. I'm not sure that this recordings moving time is correct since that was the time for the decent only. There is a marked trail the entire way but it is not for those who are not in shape.

Went about 4.5 up trail from south end. Lots of stream crossings, turned back when lost trail. Very nice hike until that point, if you don't mind getting feet wet. Saw another group at TH but no one else on trail. South TH easy to get to with 2WD. Consider long pants for the brush.

The view is amazing but the road is too bad. There are lots of big rocks on the road makes it so hard to drive on.

I beg to differ from the opinion that this trail is good for trail running. The trail is littered with rocks that won't bother bike tires but that are big enough that stepping inbetween them is necessary and enough of them that its exhausting to find a safe place to step. They aren't big rocks that can be stepped on, they are small enough to roll an ankle if you step on them (hope that makes sense). I'm a trail runner and managed the patience to make it 3 miles up from the south before losing patience and turning around for 3 miles back down. A great BIKING or HIKING experience for sure!

Great hike for the whole family. Uphill to a beautiful lake, and wonderful fall colors. The road to the trailhead is a little rough, but did not require 4WD. Definitely worth it.

I like the trail, didn't go very far on it. As the previous comment stated, the directions linked to this App sent us on a wild goose chase for a little bit because it had us starting farther south. Just watch for this sign in my picture on the west side of the road and you won't miss it.

Beautiful views! We parked about a mile down from the summit to get a little hike in :)

Fun and easy hike, just be careful with the ankles.

Great hike. Beautiful trail, and great distance views! Trail was a little rocky in the first 2 sections but didn't stop us. We did this hike in 3 legs. Strawberry to cascade falls, then 2 days later we did cascade falls to te-ah campground then 1 week later we did te-ah to woods ranch. If we did it again we would end at deer haven cg. From there to woods ranch is a rocky road and a lot of exposure. We would love to do this and camp 1/2 way through.

May 2017 backed packed to the meadow, you cross two ridges on the way. After the first you go down to a stream that would be a nice place to camp on its own. Before crossing the second ridge the trail is rough, we experienced a number of patches of snow. Upon crossing this ridge that includes a period of near flat ground the trail makes a steep decent to the meadow. This part of the trail had large batches of snow on some of the down slopes. We camped in Whipple Valley and day hiked to North Valley, great location if there while the water is. This will go on my annual hiking list.

The hike up to the lake was rough, there's no sugar coating it. It's entirely uphill and extremely steep at places. Absolutely worth it once you reach the lake, though. We spent 3 days up there camping and fishing and not a single person came through.
