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.

I love this hike in all seasons, but the pristine blue lakes in the area are something special in the weeks after they thaw. Steep in parts, but the reward is more than worth the effort.

Such a beautiful hike. Snowshoes needed, for awhile.

I was 5 months pregnant and did this hike while there was a shit ton of snow on the ground. But it was so nice! Not going to lie, with all that snow it was a bit harder. My husband and brother-in-law had done it when it's been warm and said it was lovely. So I plan to go back when all the snow melts

september 2015:
The hike up to red pine lake was something spectacular.
​The pictures that i was able to take, although beautiful, do not even compare to the real thing. with the leaves changing and the clouds rolling in there really is nothing else like it. and i was thrilled to see the small amount of snow that stretched itself over the lake and bit of mountain side.
If you ever are lucky enough to visit the mountains in September keep an eye out for chipmunks collecting food for the winter, they are gracefully fast little guys and fun to watch. And the White squirrel whom lives up at the lake!
