Nice trail. Easy walk at first but trek up to the top is a workout. Lots if rocks on the climb up on the trail which makes coming down a little tricky for us older hikers - 58 and 60. We were the only ones on the actual White Mesa trail up. The first part if the trail is shared with 2 other trails and there are people on it.

A favorite of mine. Not very busy in late fall and winter. Still very beautiful. Water is clear and cold. The beginning of the trail has a bit of up and down - providing some good exercise. Not too difficult though. Beautiful landscape. We took our 4 dogs. Everyone had a great time.
