Great views, a waterfall and a beautiful lake.

Hikes and camped this past weekend. It was definitely a workout but was worth it when we reached the lake. Camped on top of the waterfall and was so beautiful to wake up to.

Easy going for the first mile. The trail has some snow and water running down it, but it gets much worse once you reach the upper bridge (the one you don’t cross). From there on be prepared for snow and lots of water running own he trail. Your feet are going to get wet. I had micro spikes and I had no trouble with the snow. There were four groups totaling 8 people on the final snow field ascent when lightning started to strike. We all chose to bail even though we were in a quarter mile of the lake. Hail rain lightning...it was an awesome day. Met some cool people in the process. There is plenty of water on this hike so carry a filter and a few less liters of water

I like backpacking

Gate was open to the trail today, still muddy and wet, but great non the less.

Just called the ranger station as well, was reported it would be closed until the 25th of May.

I loved the hike and the views were worth it!!! I’d definitely go again!

About the hikers: two non-local, relatively fit 20-somethings. No real experience hiking in snow. I'd say our pace was slow - maybe a 5 minute break every 30 minutes.

We hiked this the week of May 6, 2018. We ran into a local on the trail who said all the snow would be gone in a week, but when we were there there was plenty of snow. We had micro-spikes and trekking poles and were very happy to have them.

We started the hike at 8:15 AM. The following are duration timestamps for when we hit certain markers. Maybe that will be helpful for someone else to estimate their pace.
0:45 - Arrived at the split with White Pine Lake Trail
1:15 - Came to the Lone Peak WIlderness sign
2:20 - Came to an unmarked bridge near a sign that marked 'Red Pine Lake' and 'Trailhead'. The trail doesn't cross that bridge.
3:30 - Made it to Red Pine Lake
4:15 - Started back
4:45 - Back at unmarked bridge we first reached at 2:20
5:40 - Back at Lone Pine Wilderness sign
5:58 - Rejoined with White Pine Lake Trail
6:30 - Back at trailhead around 2:30 PM

So it took us 3:30 to go up and only 2:15 to come back down. We consumed about 3 liters of water between the two of us and that was fine.

There were a couple of different routes that diverged somewhere around the unmarked bridge mentioned above. One went through an open meadow and the other through the trees, but I don't think they were more than 50 yards from each other at any time. We came up through the trees and down through the meadow, but it didn't make much difference.

For us this was a pretty strenuous hike, but I loved it! Very few people on the trail and great views. Also spotted a Dusky Grouse. I'm glad we got an early start and very glad we had the spikes and trekking poles. We rented those at REI for very cheap.

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!!!

By far one of my favorite hikes. The lake is beautiful!

Tried to hike this on Saturday but the road that takes you the last 5.5 miles is still closed. Everyone had to turn around at the gate. Will try again in a month and update.

The trail was completely covered with hard pack snow all the way to lower Red Pine. It got a little soft up to the upper lakes but manageable with cleats. The accent all the way to the saddle was steep and sketchy as there were only a few tracks to help stabilize your feet. Still an absolutely beautiful day to be on the trail. All lakes are still frozen over of course but the Ridgelines look amazing under snow. Keep trekking

This was such a gorgeous hike. Beautiful views of the canyon and when you get to the lake it’s stunning. The bugs were pretty bad so definitely bring your bug spray.

Awesome hike. Snow is still really deep but compacted for most of the trail. Fairly steep and can get difficult in areas.

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.

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.

The track was pretty well cut all the way to the waterfall this morning despite the recent storms. The snowshoes were definitely helpful but you could pull it off with spikes if you're just going to the falls. The waterfall was completely covered in snow and not the giant icicle I thought it would be. Still amazingly beautiful. Soaked it all in with a little breakfast at the top of the falls.

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!

The trail was really pretty and easy, however when we went down, there were approximately 700 Boy Scouts coming up on a Friday night, as well as some other groups, and there aren’t really a ton of camp spots. So I recommend it for a day hike, but if you camp there, you may be sharing it with a lot of the Boy Scouts in Utah county. When I have more time I want to head up to silver glance lake above.

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 during the fresh snow. Avalanche risk was moderate to considerable. There were freshly down trees between the take-off of Maybird Gulch and the lower lake that warranted significant care and sticking within the tree line. Need snowshoes/skis this time of year.

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.

Nice winter hike. Trail is in pretty good shape right now. Snowshoes are overkill and there’s only a bit of ice.
