Camp at the Cottonwood Ridgeline

White Pine Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Andy Earl

The Cottonwood ridge line is one of the most easily accessible alpine experiences you can have. Beautiful views and lakes. An opportunity to knock out multiple summits in a day.

Begin at the White Pine Trailhead in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Follow the trail up toward Red Pine Lake. The trail gets a little hard to follow after the lake, but find your way up to the ridge between Pfeifferhorn and White Baldy.

Set up camp and enjoy a night in the high mountains. Morning will allow you to adventure hike from White Baldy to Pfeifferhorn. The ridge has a few sections of some pretty fun scrambling.
