Did this hike and it had an amazing view from when you start and when you end. Well worth the hike.

Great views!!!!

Went up last week, tons of snow and quite a bit of ice on the lower parts of the trail. Sunset was beautiful and it took 1 1/2 hrs to get up. (we were going really fast) plan for just over 2 hrs and bring spikes!

We hiked it today 3-21-18, gate was open, and only 10 people were up there... we got to the top around noon and ate lunch then came back down, the snow is melting in some places so it's a little muddy at some parts... but the majority of the trail was either dry or damp... the water was really warm and nice :)

on White Pine Lake Trail

2 days ago

Challenging trail especially in the snow because some areas aren't very packed so you end up knee deep or more. Most people choose the Red Pine Trail over this one because it's a little shorter and a little less steep. This one is more peaceful because there were no other hikers just two skiers. I'll definitely try this one again when everything is thawed out more.

We hiked yesterday, 3-18-18. The gate was open, so we were able to park right at the trailhead. The pools are awesome!

I did this hike with my boyfriend a couple days ago. We started at Angels Landing and ended at campsite 8 in Telephone Canyon. It is approximately 17 miles round trip. There is a lot of ascending on the way there, it took us approximately 5 and half hours to get to our camp. Campsite 8 was a haul, but offered good protection from the wind and was close to the water source. The trip back was mostly down hill and we knocked it out in a little over 3 hours. Beautiful views from start to finish! The trip out was difficult with the extra weight on my back. Be sure to pack enough water.

Went in early March. Saw maybe 20 people tops making this an incredible and peaceful hike. The water got waist deep at times. We rented our gear from Zion Adventures - full body, camera bags, and stick. Glad we did. The stick definitely helped balance us out. Overall moderate hike. Unlike any hike I’d ever done before.

Great hike! did it by myself on a weekday and there;s nobody around. one star less because the central part that parallel with the bike trail is kinda boring. Very accessible slot canyon and so much diversity of rocks!

wide range of things to see. so much fun and by far one of my favorite hikes I've done. I did the glacier and back down the other side so it was a bit longer but absolutely incredible.

So beautiful and very hard on my thighs and coordination! I fell in at one point (I’m not very experienced) but it was all worth it for the once in a lifetime views and experience.

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

Great birding yesterday! Saw 11 different birds.

Steep first .4 miles. Fairly nice walk around the lake. Some snow on north facing trials. Overall a very pleasant hike.

Did this hike on 4th of July Weekend 2017. The first 4 miles follows the Uintah River and is beautiful. Tons of trees, few good fishing spots, very nice easy hiking. From Sheep's Bridge you start switchbacks for 4-5 miles. They suck. You feel like you'll never get out. After that you'll cross Krebs Creek. From there I think it's only another 2 miles to the Lower Chain lake. We camped here for 2 days, did lots of fishing and exploring. The hike in took us 7 hours, back took us 4. We'll be going back this year to go all the way to King's. Should be fun

Hello - does anyone know when the winter gate is scheduled to be open so that we can drive all the way to the trailhead? Trying to take a group of kids and the extra hike on the road is just too much for them...

By far one of the best hikes I’ve ever been on. The views are unbelievable.

A few notes:

We spoke to a ranger in the cannonsville station to grab permits to camp near the Egypt trailhead. Told her we were going to the cathedral, through the fence canyon route. She suggested we took a different route, which only required 1 river crossing rather than 5.

Once we were at the trailhead we decided to go for the fence canyon route since we had a gps with it loaded on. Trail is tough, and navigation skills are necessary. Scope out the best spots to cross the river at each point. Was about thigh-waist high deep at its deepest point in early March.

After the 5th river crossing we were like screwwwww this, so we decided to go the route the ranger suggested to us on the way back.
Cross the river just south of the neon canyon entrance and walk directly away from the dome that signals the entrance of the canyon. After that, you’ll feel like you’re lost in the desert for an hour or so, but you’ll easily be able to locate the final ascent to the TH. Lots of ups and downs, but Definitely worth going this route over fence canyon if you aren’t feeling a bunch of river crossings.

Overall, 10/10 hike, 10/10 views, one hell of an adventure.

Sucked walking on the clear dry road so long before you get to the trailhead because of the winter gate. If I come when the gate is closed next time Ill bring bikes. Very crowded and heavily trafficked. I went early morning before much people headed up. If you go when cold than bring something good for walking on ice, its very slick. The springs were pretty cool. I would have preferred to go to it in lower light conditions as the water seems neater colors. Ill definitely go again.

Stayed at Chester Park 4 and it was an amazing campsite. Perfect views of the sunset. Trees and nice area to set tent under. A private cave behind the camp you can climb up in.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Nicely snowpacked for the majority of the trail, just used microspikes and carried snowshoes which were helpful for the top near the lake and walking around the lake which was frozen and snow covered. Completed 3/11/18.

Great trail! We have an issue finding trails where my pup can come that aren’t an hour out. So this was a great beautiful local hike for us that we’ll do many more times! It doesn’t have a super clear ending. But we joked about 6 Miles total. Going back and forth with the creek was great. We went with a little melting snow, I’d imagine spring and fall are beautiful!

Very steep. Went a few days ago and is currently covered in snow and some ice. This hike is basically you climbing the entire time until you reach the lake and then climbing back down. Would not recommend toddlers due to steep stairs and ice. The lake was semi frozen but still beautiful. Gave my thighs a workout for sure.

Beautiful, be ready for a sand hill climb on the way back..look forward to doing it again..

What an amazing trip up to Blanche today. The trail is hard packed all the way to the top. Snow shoes not needed to the lake but spikes are highly recommended. The sun was out and no wind. Even lugged up some ice fishing gear and landed 5 browns in only 20 min. Nothing above 10”. The action is fast due to lack of food right now I’m sure. The ice was about 4 feet deep and plenty safe. We head lumped early, but the trail was busy on our way down. Everyone was really respectful and nice and I was glad to see many people enjoying the amazing day. Happy trekking

Fantastic work out

Beautiful! Worth the hike, we were quite sore with the added 3.8 mile walk on the cement back to the trailhead, and the 2.2 miles back to the springs. Overall it took us about 2 hours and 20 minutes to get to the springs, and 1 hour and 45 minutes to get back to the car from the springs. Watch out for slippery rocks and nude bathers ;)

This was a great hike for early march. You get to experience different climates which is cool, and gain elevation quickly due to the trail switchbacks. Other than it being moderately tiring just due to the elevation gain, it’s a good and very doable hike for all levels. Once you reach the “top” continue a very short ways down on the “loop trail just until you come up to the opening where you get the killer view of Zion at all angles. Great spot for lunch and pictures.

A good trail for snowshoeing. Went up a couple miles after a snow storm and enjoyed the winter scenery.

on Grandaddy Basin

15 days ago

The trail is a little steep and rocky at first, but this is a great hike with beautiful lakes. There’s a fair amount of traffic between the trail head and Grandaddy lake, but once you’re in the basin, the trails are easy going, and it’s a lot less busy.
