Trails were covered in snow when I left at 10am. It pretty easy to go off trail and made this hike pretty tough. I backtracked a few times. Regardless, it was still a beautiful hike with it snowing the entire trek. It might have been a bit more manageable as the day went on, temperature warmed up, and more people packed down trails.

Snow came down like crazy. At least 8” at the lake when we started our decline around 10:30 PM. It was easy to come down the trail in fresh powder, though. The wind was gnarly and blew a bunch of trees down across the trail and animals were very active. 10/10 would do it again even in the snow.

Beautiful hike! We got to the lake right as the storm moved in tonight; difficult journey back to the car but oh so worth it.

Such a fun trail! Went about halfway then we got too cold from our sweat. Very snowy in areas, so be cautious! But it was so beautiful, like stepping into Narnia.

Have hiked both ends of this loop just not the 1.5 miles of the middle section of actual White Canyon Trail. Good trail on the Box Elder trail portion of this loop but quite steep climb. From the upper trail junction of the Box Elder Peak trail and the Deer Creek/Dry Creek portion of the loop is also on good trails.

There was some snow on the trail today and there was one short icy spot that we used chains for 50 feet. There was a small number downed trees. The trail was well established and easy to follow. I'll major trail junctions had signs. If you don't want to return back the way you came you can take the Deer Creek/Dry Creek trail back to the trailhead. This is .5 miles shorter that returning and makes a nice loop.

After hiking the Box Elder Trail we return back to the trailhead on this trail which is .5 miles shorter than returning back on the Box Elder Trail. The trail is good and well used. Nice view from the saddle of Tibble Fork reservoir. There are times when the trail is rocky.

Love this hike but even Silver Glance is getting a bit crowded for my tastes. Even this late in the season there’s a lot of traffic. With a bit of snow on the ground it can be tricky to follow the trail once you’re up past Silver Lake. Absolutely gorgeous at the top.

Completed this today: First 2 miles is about 1200’ of elevation gain through an area with no shade but it’s pretty steady. Mile 3 right after the first trail marker is where you really start climbing. I think it was about 2000’ in 1.5 miles. At about 3.7 in after Eniss peak the trail levels out all the way until you begin your final accent about 4.5 in. After this you make the final accent which wasn’t as bad to me as the slog up at about 2 miles in. I used the all trails app and the really helped me stay on course, especially in the bouldering areas where it’s easy to lose your way.

Great hike! The trail has been revised this year with some switchbacks. It’s a little longer, but a little easier too. Although, it’s still pretty tough. Lake is super low this time of year.

I parked at the jacobs ladder trail head, you must go to Orson Park first and then take the dirt road south. The say you need a high clearance vehicle but I did it in a 1993 Honda accord stock height, just be careful. The trail was beautiful today (10/16/19) it was my first time and the top was a bit sketchy but doable, I recommend trekking poles til you get up the rock chute that goes very vertical.

beautiful all together. i go here all the time to think but be careful not to go at night though. they call it "stoner falls."

Great hike! I was the only one on the trail and the only one at the lake. Took me 1:37 to the lake and back. Will take the kids next time. The only thing I did not like was the road to get to the trailhead.

We set out starting from the Orson Smith Trail. Our hike began at 6:15am. My friend who is 47 and myself 41 are in good shape, but only hike half a dozen times a year. The first mile is fairly easy and the trail is wide. The second mile heading up Jacobs Ladder gets real tough. It is steep and the incline is aggressive. We took 30 second rest breaks every couple of minutes. Miles 4-6 are slower and more rock hopping and scrambling. I like that type of hiking. The views are amazing. The landscape is spectacular. I love the mix of limestone and pine trees. We saw a couple of deer but no other wildlife other than birds and the every now and then squirrel, which I was surprised about. I expected to see moose, more deer and even a mountain lion with how high and remote we were. Getting up to the base of the summit was so much fun to boulder through. Again, very physically demanding. But getting to the top was worth it. We hiked all three peaks of Nebo two weeks ago and this view, IMO, was much more beautiful and amazing. We spent a half hour up top eating lunch and taking in the view. The hike down was brutal. Very hard on the quads and knees. We got lost from the main trail and ended up detouring just over a mile (according to All Trails). That was frustrating. We finally got back to the trail after bushwhacking up the side of the mountain. Had we not got lost, we would have done the hike in around 7 hours. We were moving at a pretty good pace most of the time. I recommend this hike. Through the 25 yrs I’ve lived in Utah Valley I’ve always seen the steep, shear cliffs of Lone Peak from I-15 and wondered what it was like up there. And now I know... and it didn’t disappoint one bit.
