Backpack to White Pine Lake, Logan

White Pine Lake - Search Nearby - Added by Hunter Iverson

Enjoy this beautiful turquoise lake and scenery near Logan, Utah. There are plenty of places to camp and the lack of light pollution makes it a great place for star photography.

You will start from the Tony Grove Lake parking lot and start hiking northeast on the White Pine Lake trailhead. The trail is roughly 3.8 miles to the lake through beautiful Quaking Aspens and Pines. The first 2.5 miles are fairly easy with a slight incline. You will then reach the top of a ridge and be able to see a beautiful basin with Mt. Gog to your North and Mt. Magog to your West. White Pine Lake is nestled in the valley between these two peaks. From here it is all downhill as you descend into the basin on fairly steep switchbacks and then West towards the lake.

When you arrive there are plenty of spots to pitch a tent or hang a hammock. There are also many fire rings for a nice warm fire before bed. Once camp is all set up, you can fish, sit by the lake and enjoy the scenery, or even take some awesome pictures of the Milky Way later in the night. In the morning you can pack up and hike back or even continue on the trail to some of the other beautiful lakes in this region of Logan Canyon.

Overall rating: 

Great summer hike, amazing views, and great swimming.

YOU NEED $7 CASH TO PARK! We didn't know and how to park a quarter mile away from the trailhead. We hiked up around 9:30am and it was perfect because we were warm enough to jump in the lake, it was amazing! Great places to chill and hammock also.

Amazing hike and camping area

I've camped here multiple times, and would recommend to anyone considering making the trip. There are 10+ camp spots around the lake, all of which are big and include large fire pits. The hike isn't too steep or too long, and will take you up and over a peak until you reach White Pine Lake. Perfect for a weekend camping trip.

Fun day adventure

The lake is very pretty and the trail is easy to follow and not too difficult. Dogs are allowed and camping at the lake looked pretty nice.
