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

Steep and exposed for a lot of it but the view from the top is worth it!

Totally worth it. Less strenuous than Lake Blanche, but longer.

Gorgeous lake! It looked like the Caribbean tucked away on top of a mountain. The hike is pretty much all uphill on the way to the lake, however the trail is wide. We even saw a bull moose crossing the trail in the first 5 minutes of hiking. Took up 3 hours up and a little over an hour down. SO MANY WILDFLOWERS!

Great meadows and wildflowers. Saw a moose right next to the the trail. Very rocky up top, but great views if you make it to the top ridge.

Absolutely gorgeous view, so many things to see. From the many wild flowers, to the pristine lake to the surrounding mountains you won't be disappointed!

Most of the trail is a gravel road but at least the lake is nice. Much prefer the Red Pine hike overall
