Incredible hike!!! We only made it 4 miles up, shy of the lake by a mile or so. We were not prepared to traverse the knee to waist deep snow in spots. Must do! We will be back!!!

This trail becomes a dadgum bushwhack after 2 miles.

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.

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!

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. The beginning was easy over packed snow and little to no ice. Never used spikes, but used hiking poles which really helped with the second half of the hike as the trail became steeper and more snow. We made it about 4 miles in and turned around before the lake. The trail diverted into a few different paths but we kept post holing and decided to turn around.

A great winter hike. Moderate traffic of backcountry skiers.

One of my favorite places to hike! Never disappoints. Always peaceful and serene with few people on the trail. Hiked it yesterday... was the only one on the Maybird turn off. Trail ran a chunk of it, mostly on the downhill, too steep for me to run up most of it. Used a new pair of icebugs cleated trail running shoes. The snow tracks don't follow the real trail but they get you there fine. I didn't realize it had dumped me out at the highest lake, so I kept hiking up a snow shoe track til i realized I was almost to the saddle up there, so turned around. beautiful day. nice to get above the inversion. Sad that we have haze in the air from the California fires right now. Could smell and see it. Maybe consider wearing a filtering mask until the fires quit out west.

First hike here and I loved it! I was getting pretty tired but passing hikers/runners gave me motivation to keep going!

A few inches of snow so the trail to Maybird Lakes is impossible to see after the Red Pine fork. I just followed the only set of tracks and it was close to the trail.

One of the most beautiful hiking trails I've ever been to. It's rated as hard, but I don't agree. I would consider it as moderate. I highly recommend it!

great hike to put some work into, and the lake is beutiful at the end. you really get to appreciate the wildflowers on the way back down.

Awesome! Definitely not "difficult", though, unless inclímate weather. Snow and freezing temps makes this hike much more of a challenge. Long, but very do-able for just about anyone. 5.2 miles up, no less.

The trail from Silver Lake to Silver Glance is a little hard to follow, and it’s pretty steep, but worth it.

Trail was super rocky, and as you got toward the top you were walking through probably a foot of snow for the last hour. Took about 3.5 hours at a moderate pace to get to the lake, which was very shallow and not really that special. It was so small that is was hard to find almost. Maybe October isn't the best month for this trail.

At least during this time of the year, I would recommend wearing something a little better than tennis shoes too. My shoes and socks were soaked, and they were also covered in mud. It was also very slippery in some areas, at times you're walking on pure ice.

It just seemed like a lot of time invested (7 hour round trip), for nothing too spectacular. My phone recorded 14.5 miles once I got to the bottom, and although phones can be inaccurate; it did feel like a lot more walking than 10 miles. The high snow and having to carefully strafe the trail in order to not slip probably didn't help.

Didn’t make it all the way to Silver Glance Lake as it was snowing & with the steepness, I opted to turn around after I had a nice view of Silver Lake below.

Beautiful trail started early, at the top there was close to a foot of snow to hike through. Still worth it, the trail was really wet on the way down (expect water in your shoes) . Took about 4 hrs to get up cause of the snow and about 2 to get down. Saw a bunch of deer.

Amazing trail- saw a moose and some deer. Well maintained

Great hike that's definitely less traveled than those that start at the same trail head. We hiked it at the end of September, it was 20 degrees to start, but it ended up being great weather. The lakes had a very thin layer of ice, making them look even more stunning thank usual.

I went on thursday morning. it took me about 3.5 hours to finish at a good pace. It was easier than red pine in my humble opinion. first time doing it, beautiful views, definitely cold. I would recommend gloves!! great hike!

Hiked to the lake and then bagged Red Baldy. Cold (25°F?) and windy with a dusting of snow on the ground near the lake and all the way up to the peak. Awesome views, wide trail.

It was so cold up there this morning! We saw several hunters but very little wildlife.
I enjoyed that the trail was nice and wide which was helpful for a group to be able to hike together.
The last mile to the lake was covered in icy snow but not too slick.

I enjoyed the hike. I actually did a circle. So far, none of these AllTrails hike show it this way. Started near the Granite Flats campground entrance. Hiked on Trail 43 to Trail 188. About a mile or so, there is an unmarked trail to the Box Elder Peak Summit. I have a GPX to share, if needed. Then hiked back to trail 188 and turned right. Followed that to Trail 44 back to the Granite Flats campground. Most of Trail 188 beyond the Box Elder Peak turnoff is very much overgrown, but not hard to stay on the trail. I loved it, because I was alone most of the day. Here is a Strava Link, if it helps. https://www.strava.com/activities/1168712457

My first time hiking White Pine. I loved the trail but my legs were definitely tired after this one!

The lake is gorgeous, we got rained on a little, and didn't see one other person the whole hike down. And: the aspen leaves are starting to turn - yay!

hiked this for a couple miles this morning. fall colors are definitely coming out. love how quiet this trail is and the gorgeous views. we also saw a deer on the hike today.

I recorded 10.2 miles round trip. This is a trail that is an old road leading all the way to the lake. I just wish I started hiking earlier to enjoy the sun over the lake. overall, great!!

fantastic ROI

My favorite trail in the Wasatch. Wide enough to go with a loved one and walk side by side. The lake is one of my favorite places on earth ❤️

Great hike and worth the effort for the scenic ending. The flowers are everywhere and in full bloom as of this post. Probably not for beginners however, it's long and fairly steep in places. Start before 10:00 am, and preferably before 9:00 am so you can have as much shade as possible. Also parking can be an issue on weekends and holidays, one more reason to arrive early. Bring 48-60 oz of water per person, sunscreen and a camera. We did it in tennis shoes without a problem, but light hikers would have been nice.
Up the trail took 2.25 hours, and coming down took 1.75 without many breaks, and only 15 minutes at the top.
