White Pine Trail is a Little Cottonwood Canyon favorite - even in winter. It features glacially carved valley beauty: sharp ridges and alpine forests. The trail is an abandoned road that is covered in snow for the winter. There are switchbacks that take you to the rocky ridge. The lake sits in a cirque with rock cliffs, encircling it on all sides.
Snow shoes may be required, depending on the trail usage and weather. We may not be able to make it to the lake. It's part of the hiking adventure.

Meet at 10:55am, hike at 11:00am. The small window of meet to hike is so people don't stand in the cold too long. Hang out in your car for a couple of minutes if you're early.
The meeting spot is called the Terrace Hills Trailhead. It's crucial that you go to the Terrace Hills Trailhead because we get someone going to the wrong spot every three to four hikes. The pin is below.
1000 elevation gain
3.6 miles total distance
Microspikes recommended, but not mandatory. I like and use trekking poles, but not too many other people use them.
This is a beginner's hike, but it isn't east. If it's your first time doing this hike you should check out Alltrails first.
This is a good location to see the sky as it's away from the city lights.
We'll meet in the parking lot which is across the street from our hike.
Meet at 6:45pm, hike at 7:00pm
This is a beginner's hike. 900 elevation gain, 3.9 miles.
It's a mild trail to get to Little Mountain. Little Mountain is a medium hike that does have some elevation gain. If hiking is hard for you then you could potentially avoid hiking up Little Mountain.
