Outstanding views! Glissading was the best!!

The wildflowers on this trail are beautiful! The lake itself is a great payoff from this fairly short and sweet hike. This trail is one of the gems of Logan Canyon!

This is a Goldilocks Trail - just the right distance, hard but not too hard, and a great mix of sun and shade. But most of all it was the wildflowers. Oh the wildflowers. Just breathtaking.

Awesome quick day hike/run on our way from SLC to bear lake and beyond. The wild flowers are beautiful! Reminded us of Alta meets the Tusher mountains. Saw some families back packing would be a great long day/over night trip for kids. We were pleased with this adventure it was Beautiful!

This was a great over night for us. My 5 and 2 year old girls loved it. Flowers of all colors everywhere. Peaks above lake are awesome. Not a lot of bugs. I’d give it a 4 if the lake was one you wanted to jump into after a hike and if the trail was less busy. When we hiked in at 6 pm it wasn’t bad but the campground was busy and hiking out the trail was very busy. Still probably my favorite hike in logan canyon.

This is a great hike for families. Our 8 & 6 year olds did it no problem. Easy trail and amazing scenery. Definitely one of our favorites.

Awesome trail. $7 to park at Tony Grove Lake, but well worth the 90 minute hike to White Pine Lake. Our Fitbits had us at about 4.05 miles from parking lot to white pine lake.

The trail wasn’t busy at all, white pine has a handful of dispersed camping sites near the lake. Seemed like a great place to hike out, set up camp and enjoy some peace and quite for a weekend, or however long!

Excellent hike taking about 90 minutes in and a little more out. The steepness of the back portion of the hike is a little challenge but overall it is a beautiful experience.

Excellent for kids. Took my 8YO, wished that I had my 6YO as well. You give up a fair amount of elevation over the last 1.5-ish miles, which means on the hike back out you start with a pretty good climb.

The fee at the trailhead is $7/day and on a weekend they are there collecting.

If you go on a summer Friday or Saturday plan on sharing the trail with multiple scout troops and horse parties.

One of best hikes I have ever done in Utah

If you are an experienced hiker you will find this a pretty easy hike. The only significant elevation is at the beginning and then as you descend to the lake then ascend back. My GPS tracked exactly 4 miles to the lake with a little campground exploration. The views are stunning, birds singing everywhere, but really, if you lived in a place like this, you'd sing too!
We back packed in and it took 2 hours with several stops for pictures, a blister first aid, and drinks. Busy trail but except for the horse poop, it's very pristine. Hikers are taking care to keep it clean. If you come later in the evening on a weekend you might have a hard time finding a camp spot. We arrived at 6:30 and there were several to choose from. We saw only two other groups. But by dusk the place was packed.
Really no firewood unless you go hunt for it and even then a hatchet will be your friend. We found plenty, but it took four of us to go search away from the area both night and morning.
Hardly any bugs, that may change as the summer progresses.
Honestly doesn't get much better than this.
Pack out whatever you pack in!

Great!! Very beautiful hike with more flat hike. Hardest part was the return going back up from the lake, but after that pretty moderate in difficulty.

Not a lot of places to camp but still fun!

Beautiful start to finish. Steady uphill grade to the ridge crosses several alpine streams with spectacular Rocky Mountain Vistas. Getting used to the altitude was my biggest challenge. Over the ridge and a series of switchbacks down the other side followed by a steady downhill grade to the lake. Ridiculously beautiful mountain setting for White Pine Lake. Because this location is heavily visited, fire wood is a challenge to find. Suggest backpack food. Caught several brook Trout. Tons of fun fishing. Next morning body was was good with the altitude which made hike out of there much better. Don't underestimate this hike. By the time you get back to Tony's Grove Lake you will be thrashed - but glad you went.

I hiked this with my 11 year old son and my 10 year old niece. Great views. We hiked from Smithfield to Tony Grove and had a car pick us up and take us back home. Definitely would hike it again!

Great trail to take a beginning backpacker. Its easy, beautiful and short. I like to do it at least once a year as a short fun weekend trip.

Camping under mount Magog in the wildflowers was awesome! The lake is pretty neat and we saw some deer at dusk. Lots of good campsites, had no trouble finding one in July.

I have been hiking this with my kids for the last 3 years (they are 9 and 10 now) it is so worth the hike. It's a pretty easy hike with only part of it being intense.

I drive up to Tony Grove to backpack this trail every fall. It's a beautiful drive and a very easy hike. If you get here at the right time, the aspens are all yellow and look outstanding! Descending down to the lake is fun and there are quite a few spots to camp.

Perfect moderation. And the road was amazing up to the trailhead so my old car didn't have a problem.

An easy, beautiful hike!

loved this beautiful hike. some bikers, couple horses but mostly back packers. parking lot gets busy but beautiful lake and hike.

Took the horses last fall, the leaves were stunning. It's a good trail for the horses. The last little bit going down to the lake are some switchbacks where we ran into some tight passing with hikers. I'm looking forward to going again and maybe trying to access from Franklin Basin.

This was a very beautiful hike. It's been on my list for several months now. lots of scenic wildflowers and nature. On the down side, it was extremely busy with people hiking, horseback riding, and biking. There were those that left there animal waste on the trail.

Such a beautiful hike with wildflowers everywhere! We back-packed later in the afternoon and it wasn't busy at all. The next day we hiked out around noon and there were tons of people hiking in, plus it was extremely hot! I do suggest either hiking in the early morning or later in the day to avoid congestion on the trail and to not sweat to death.

Mostly exposed to the sun, so can get hot and sunburn. Elevation change is modest. There are a couple of meadows along the way, which are full of wild flowers in the summer. The lake is pretty and rewarding.

Can get really crowded.

We love this hike and have done it several times. Expect snow in early June, we lost the trail under snow a couple times before when in snow. so beautiful and peaceful.
