The trail is a really nice trail. Awesome views and a good workout for anyone wanting a challenge. Well worth the $6. The only complaint I have is how their lack of mile-markers and maps throughout the trail. We somehow got mixed up and our "8.1 mile" hike became a 12.4 mile one. I wish they would make the signs more hiker friendly.....
This was our first time in the White Tanks. $6 per vehicle park fee, but it was well worth it. Great trail and views. MapMyFitness logged it as 8.77 miles, while AllTrails logged 8.1.
Beautiful. Good workout, but not too hard.
Went out for a sunrise trek / day hike, and was not disappointed with the trails. The wildlife, scenery and views have made this a fast favorite of ours.
Loved this trail!
Great trail for a good workout and a pleasant hike
