Description

A breathtaking alpine lake in Utah's Big Cottonwood Canyon at the end of Lake Blanche Trail, well worth the hike. This lake is simply stunning AND it's surrounded by immense tower-like mountains...

Half-Day Hike: Follow the Lake Blanche Trail until its terminus; approximately 3.5 miles.

Gem Type: Lake

Did this hike today. It's semi-log, semi-strenuous, but the payoff is more than worth it. The area at the top is like a playground. You could spend hours up there. Aug 26, 2017
