Description

This trail begins off of Little Cottonwood Road at the White Pine Trail. This trail is a strenuous out-and-back trail along White Pine Fork in Little Cottonwood Canyon, which climbs 2500+ feet over five miles.

The trail begins gradually then increases in grade over the first mile. River-rocks and scree add a challenge to the trail, in addition to the steady slope. The grade increases after mile one after a switchback but levels off after the second mile.

The trail continues to climb along the White Pine Fork up several switchbacks. At mile 3.5, the grade becomes quite steep as the trail climbs through the pines, reaching White Pine Lake at mile five. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains are majestic.

The descent is fast and loose. Be mindful to yield to hikers as this is a popular area.
