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.

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.
