The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is one of the 12 National Forests in the Intermountain Region as well as one of the urban National Forests in the Forest Service System. It covers an area that includes northern and north-central Utah, and southwestern Wyoming. This area also includes the larges population center within the State of Utah, which is known as the Wasatch Front. The Forest is heavily influenced and impacted from over a million people living in close proximity. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest has a net acreage of 2,169,596 acres. It is divided into seven Ranger Districts: Salt Lake, Kamas/Heber, Ogden, Pleasant Grove, Spanish Fork, and Logan in Utah; and Evanston/Mountain View in Wyoming. Scenic beauty on the Forest offers unlimited recreational opportunities throughout the year. Whether you enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, mountain biking, camping, picnicking, fishing, boating, swimming, horseback riding, etc., you can find the recreational experience you are seeking. Because of the abundance of recreation opportunities and the large urban population along the Wasatch Front, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is one of the most heavily visited in the entire National Forest System.

Love this trail. Runs by a river/stream for most of the trail. The trail is pretty much shaded the whole way. Anyone in the family can enjoy.

Challenging but worth it.

I've been want to go for sometime. It was mich more than I expected. view was great. kids loved the rope swing.

on White Pine Lake Trail

The spectacular wildflowers and lovely lake at the end of the trail make this one a "must do". Went on a Saturday, and had lots of company. Low on solitude, but high on friendly people enjoying Mother Nature's gifts

This app is great

favorite hike so far!!!

we did 4 of the lakes, well worth it. saw a huge moose about 15 paces from us, as well as a lot of other wildlife. lake mary was moderately trafficked, but catherine and the smaller one we saw only had one or two others in sight. we only saw two other people on the actual loop (they worked for the watershed) but there seemed to be people both going to mary or catherine, just not via the loop.

longest .7 of my life...

mosquitoes like I've never seen. no fishing either.

Great hike to the falls. If you want to go further, it's nice, too. Fairly steep after the falls, but not hard.

The first part of the trail is shady and nice. It runs along the creek. About a mile and a half in, it turns up the mountain and gets hot, dry, and steep.

if you are doing this trail, then do the entire loop.

beautiful trail. one of my favorites!

the trail was over grown and a little steep but it was fun and secluded. we didn't run into any other hikers after we got into the Burch Trail. pretty views of Milcreek canyon.

The views at the top were gorgeous. Worth the hike. Personally, a short distance for the views you get, though the trail is ATV trail also so very rocky and rough in certain spots.

Took our 2 year old on this hike and he made it about a quarter to a third of the way on his own before he got tired. Although that may have been because it was getting late. It was about 7 pm when we started the hike. Either way it was a great hike. Very fun and quick even with a two year old.

A fun little nature walk with our 2 year old. We actually didn't walk around the whole thing this time. Instead we decided to do the Lake Solitude hike to test out our little guy. He did wonderful on both this walk and the hike.

Good hike with lots of shade. Unfortunately, there are no signs so we ended up on Indian trail. We backtracked and finally took the saw mill route. Had to bushwhacked but did not make it to the end - it got very muddy and we saw fresh moose tracks. Ended up hiking 5.2 miles round trip.

I loved this hike!! It was great for me and my boys!! It was a good length and a mix of flat and a little steep!

Steep in some areas and very over grown but a great hike none the less. Don’t expect to swim in the lake, it’s just for the doggos :)

great hike a little difficult for a beginner like me had to stop quite a bit to catch my breath and i also forgot the bug spray if you hike this Trail you're definitely going to need bug spray for all the mosquitoes... But once we reach the lake it was all worth it so beautiful up there

Breathtaking scenery, easy trail. Not a lot of shade. Glacier lake at the end with a rope swing if you dare!

Easy hike with beautiful old trees and wild flowers. Lots of shade gentle incline.

This trail offers amazing views!! Some of it it shaded, like next to the creek in Ice Box Canyon. Lots of trees and meadows. Beautiful mountain cliff views! The perfect amount of incline for the length of the trail. This one will be a go to trail time after time!!

Good option for a challenging hike that doesn't require a drive up a canyon. I clocked about 3,000 ft. elevation gain and 8 miles round trip using Strava, and that was going past what is described as the little black mountain peak to almost the end of the bigger peak, so I'm not sure how why the stats on this say 11.5 miles and 4685 ft. Took me nearly 4 hours total with about 10 minutes at the top, stopping to take pictures and breathe a lot in the second half. The steep section is definitely a doozy, but luckily the majority of the trail is moderate. Great sunset views coming down in the evening, and it is awesome to be able to see so far in any direction! As far as wildlife goes, I did see some deer at the top and there were plenty of crickets to disturb along the path.

Really crowded which makes sense because it's not too strenuous or long so kids can come.

very very muddy right now. We didn't want to slip so we didn't climb down the rock to see the falls. Really pretty hike and worth it for sure.

Took our RZR through here and up to Old Ephraims Grave. There was mild utv traffic, otherwise smooth trail.

For a beginner like me; this was a great hike with amazing views!

Just visited today, hike is pretty easy until the steep part right before the lake as others have mentioned. The GPS location I got from AllTrails kept trying to make us take a private road on someone's property so I recommend stopping at the parking lot at the top of Guardsman Pass. Out of the 6 of us who swam in the lake only 1 found a leech on them so enter at your own risk!

Went yesterday in beautiful weather. $6 after Alta resort to drive to the top, but worth it. Also worth it to park at the Albion Basin Campground instead of the Catherine's Pass lot. After Cecret Lake, a tiny section of the service road is blocked and under construction, but don't give up, just follow the lift up the hill. It took us 1.5 hours from parking lot to Sugarloaf peak, but with plenty of rest stops. It took us about 1.5 to get down too, but that's because the hill down the peak on the loop is very steep, but still recommended over going back the way you came because it has switch-backs and isn't as rocky as the way up. It also took us longer because at the bottom of the hill we went right instead of staying left closer to the lake, and that put us back a twenty minute detour. All things considered, you could get up there after breakfast and be done for lunch, but I'd recommend snacks. So beautiful!!!
