Nice trail for snowshoeing. About 3 feet of snow in the upper stretches, maybe more in Thayne canyon.
Blanche Lake Hike
I visited nearby Lake Florence and Lake Lillian on this trip also.
A punishing ascent with a few sketchy areas. Terrain is mixed snow, ice, mud, and rock with the snow and ice becoming more prevalent at 9k feet. Traction and poles are a really good idea on this trail for this time of year. There are a few old ruined miner cabins and shafts along the way.
White pine lake
An awesome late season hike before the snow gets deep. This is a longish but moderate hike. Plenty of water along the way.
Some Tracking issues here. Actual climb was about 5000 feet.
