    So much variety! It starts off pretty and easy, as you duck off the road and start slowly climbing the side of the canyon. At this time, the ground was nice and hard (frozen) in the morning. It was brisk, but a jacket wasn’t needed once we started moving. We were able to get sub-25-minute miles on mile 1 and 3. We reached the lake and started attacking our way to the summit. Other reviews are correct — DO NOT GO LEFT to get to the ridge. We traversed a blade’s edge scramble. Foolish. Especially since there were better routes up. It was also slower. After that, we quickly got to the final ridge before the towering summit. That was quite the ridge! It was more difficult than the earlier mentioned blade’s edge you run into if you go left, attacking the ridge between White Pine and Pfiefferhorn. Only 2 of a group of ten attempted it — we went with those two. It’s nice to have someone else with you on this! Take it slow and steady, don’t be foolish, and then it’s no big deal. The final ascent was beasty.It get for every step forward you moved, you climbed three feet. Getting to the top, swaddled in a cloud, was incredible. The winds were pushing the fog fast, so we’d get brief glimpses of what lay beyond. It often appeared as if the drops descended into nothingness with the fog! The way down was a bit challenging to navigate as snow hid the trail heading back to Red Pine lake. But this was incredible. I’d definitely go again.

    Nice hike. Lot is always full, but there is ample parking along the road. One mile to the split between Red and White Pine Trails. It is 3.56 miles to the lake. Plenty to see and it is a nice walk around the lake. Late September and no rain in a while so the lake water level is low. Few spots to camp look nice.

    The bridge at the top over dry creek is washed out. As a result the trail between dry creek and the Lake Hardy trail turnoff is not well maintained and hard to find. This made completing the loop challenging.

    From the lake to the summit is hard but worth it. Two very steep sections. Amazing views. 360 from the summit.

    Really nice hike. Worth the visit to the beautiful lake. Previous comment is dumb.

    A great recovery hike after bagging Box Elder Peak yesterday. A nice steady climb for 2 miles on a wide trail that’s well-graded. Near the turn-off the waterfall, you start rock hopping on a small stream that forms on the trail. From the turn-off to the waterfall, you have some loose fitting and short steep slopes, but it’s nothing too bad. Amazing waterfall with a great view toward the valley. A nice quick after-work hike :-)

    The first 3.6 miles from the Deer Creek trailhead was a little overgrown in spots with some water on the trail at the start, but otherwise was very nice. A gradual ascent with nice switchbacks. The last 1.5 miles from the meadow to the summit were very tough. Lots of bushwhacking since the trail isn't marked very well (lots of it looks wiped out from avalanche debris from the winter that hasn't been cleared yet), so having Gaia was essential. Also, still quite a few tricky spots with snow and ice, so having spikes is essential (ice axe is helpful, but not needed). Finally, lots of scree in the final mile, so watch your footing. The views were INCREDIBLE from the summit. Happy to have bagged it on a sunny and cool day with calm winds.

    My first 11er since moving to Utah! Took the Deer Creek/Dry Creek Trail up for about 3.6 miles until I reached a nice meadow where the trail splits. This 3.6 miles was very nice and scenic with great views of Box Elder. Switchbacks and gradual climbs, too, with a pleasant rate of ascent. When you turn south from the meadow to make your final approach to Box Elder, it becomes a real challenge. About 1600 feet of elevation gain in just over a mile. Also, had to do lots of bushwhacking as the trail isn’t marked very well (lots of the trail looks damaged by avalanche debris from the winter). There were also some tricky spots with snow and ice, so spikes and an ice axe are good ideas. Finally, the last mile has a lot of scree and it’s easy to slip, so use caution. But if you can make it past this, you’re rewarded with an AMAZING summit view! This was an AWESOME trip. Plan to come back another day to bag the South Peak and SE Peak, but for now, the main peak (11,101 feet) will do!

    Short but steep hike with rewarding view of Horsetail falls. Great for getting your legs in shape for more serious objectives.

    It was the worst of times and the best of time. The first few miles of this hike are ugly and hot as you trudge up horseshit-peppered dirt road without shade. You graduate onto a single-track through endless scrub oak but when finally emerge, you’re in some of the most beautiful granite and pine landscapes in Utah...and usually all to yourself. The first time I did this hike I saw one other person. Yesterday I saw three. Very dramatic area with lots of peak add-on options, including Box Elder, Bighorn, South Thunder, and Lone Peak itself. Bring lots of water and a good hat.

    This hike has it all. The approach trail is moderate but a bit rocky in places. above the upper Red pine lake it gets steep with loose rock. You have to negotiate a knife edge ridge scramble with a little exposure and then a crazy steep hike to the summit on loose rock. Be careful it is easy to take a header on the way down.

    With more than 5000 ft of elevation gain this is a difficult loop hike. I recommend a counterclockwise direction.

    Short but challenging hike from the Northeast corner of Alpine. The falls are gorgeous especially in Spring and Fall. If hiking when snow packed bring micro spikes. Trails is consistently steep with loose and embedded rock. Good hike for kids.

    Hiked this trail 6-20-19. There is still a lot of runoff, resulting in several tricky crossings of raging streams, making it too dangerous for small children. Otherwise the trail is in good shape. I turned back at 8300 feet elevation where the deep snow hides the trail. This will be a great hike in late July after the snow melts. Great scenery, lots of shade and beautiful mountain meadows.
