It took us a bit more than two hours to reach the top and a bit more than an hour to come down. But we spent quite some time on top. Besides Lake Blanche, there are also two smaller lakes and some water falls on top. We went there about 10 days ago and there were just some spots of snow, which we could handle with running shoes. Most part of trail was well shaded. It was quite windy on top, so it's good to bring a jacket just in case.

Hiked 6/17 for a one night backpacking trip. Steep and steady trail but very manageable. Water is always available. Only had to carry one liter at a time. Camped next to lake Florence. Much more secluded and quiet. Very busy trail with day hikers but at night it clears out. Only a few other campers. Views of the canyon and antelope island and the great salt lake!

beautiful hike, challenging, great work out!

Great trail with a beautiful lake on top. Not for the out-of-shape. Bring lots of water and lunch or snacks to enjoy at the lake. Very busy on weekends.

About 6 hours roundtrip, 7/10 difficulty. Most rewarding hike I've been to since moving to Salt Lake this year.

Hiked on father's day 2017. it is truly as stated. Difficult. it is not for the weary. definitely bring more water than you think you need. bring a lunch and some hearty snacks. This is an unforgiving trail. it seems to never end almost a steady incline the whole way.

One of my favorites in the spring. Highly trafficked and steep, but beautiful meadows and trees all along the way.

This was a great hike! It gets steeper towards the end, but it is so fun to watch the scenery change as you go up, and there are beautiful views all along the way.

I hiked/trail ran this trail today. It was beautiful. The river was running high you could hear it most of the way up. There was no snow on the trail. At the top it was a bit chilly. That was at 8:45 am or so. I power hiked up in about 1 hour 45 mins from the parking lot. Came down in about 35 mins. Steady medium to hard incline all the way up. It was my first time so when I came to the rockfall I was confused. Just hike up the rocks oh 15 feet or so and the trail switches back. Good hike for everyone just depends how fast you want to do it. My gps showed approximately 3.7 miles from the parking lot to the lake.

Great trail, one of my favorites in the Salt Lake area. I went late Saturday morning, so the trail was incredibly packed, I had to park a half mile down the canyon at 11:30. The last half mile or so wears at your patience, but the views at the top are amazing. Once you're at the lake I found it worth it to follow the spur trails to the right to have a look at Lake Florence and Lake Lillian as well. Although the trail was crowded, at one point I turned a corner to see a solo cow moose staring at me, then spooked. I'm very glad she was by herself, but moose encounters that close are rare so I treasured the experience. Bring sunscreen!

This hike was beautiful! For me, this hike took 6 hours round trip, so I would start earlier in the day next time.
