Hike to White Pine Lake

10 Miles Round Trip - 2450 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

White Pine Trail head - Search Nearby - Added by Eric Bennett

White Pine Lake makes for a great day hike or overnight backpacking trip. Keep in mind that this is watershed area, so swimming and dogs are NOT allowed at this lake.

Just about 5 miles (2-2.5 hrs) from the trailhead, you will find the beautiful White Pine Lake where the water is an intense blue color. It's an amazing place for photos and just hanging out on a summer or fall afternoon. Along the way you will have great views of mountains of all colors, beautiful granite, meadows, streams, and valleys. Since it's a relatively short hike, you can make this a day trip or overnight. Just make sure that your campsite is at least 200 feet from the lake and the trail.

You can camp and have campfires up at the lake (check here for the campfire situation before you go since permitting may have changed), so if you're up for something even more special, bring your backpacking gear and get ready for a night under the stars...it's a great place for a quick but enjoyable overnighter. Make sure to bring bear canisters and follow proper bear protocol.

Super Fun, Poorly Marked

You lose the trailhead pretty easily and can end up confused. super fun tho, try not to slide down the snow!

The best!

My favorite lake hike in the Wasatch Range. Early in the spring, it's a fun adventure trekking across the snow. Bring your kids and challenge them!

Beautiful Hike.

Loved this hike. The wild flowers were so pretty. It was a strenuous hike but totally worth it. The lake was so pretty.
