The White Pine trailhead is on the south side of the road, 5.5 miles up Little Cottonwood Canyon and 0.7 miles below Snowbird. The turnoff for the parking area is just after a turn and is easy to miss. Start slowing down just after the "White Pine Slide Area" sign. An asphalt path leads from the parking area to a footbridge across the stream. No Fires.

About a half a mile into the hike I was wondering when it would become challenging and then it happens! This hike is very doable for sure, but definitely not a walk in the park. Bring enough water and some snacks. I'm always shocked to see people hiking in flip flops carrying a 12oz bottle of water.

Provides a great workout along with a rewarding high Alpine lake. The lake is beautiful, trail is shaded for a majority of the way. Gets particularly steep towards the end. Took us 2.5 hours up and 2 hours back while carting toddlers on our backs.

This is a great hike. But no exaggeration, it's difficult. Nothing dangerous but just some gnarly footwork. The lake is totally worth the hike. Strongly recommend this one.

This is a fantastic hike and it is truly 7.1 miles. The trail is pretty steep in some places, but nothing a motivated hiker should struggle with. The lake is beautiful right after sunrise and the cool temps were enjoyable to hike in.

According to this app it reports that this trail is 7.1 miles round trip. But according to my nike app, and Fitbit they both estimated my trek to be 10.1 in total. 1.5 miles before the lake, I found fairly challenging due to it feeling like a constant rocky/boulder-filled incline. But! It was manageable and I was able to carry my lil one up the whole way with periodic stops. Towards the end my hubs wished he had hiking poles, and perhaps also wished he had a genie where he could wish himself instant transport back to the parking lot.
The scenery for this hike was quite nice, make sure to bring bug repellent with ya, and have at least a 2L water back pack.
