Description

Start at the White Pine Trailhead and head up for about a mile. The trail then splits. You'll want to keep left to stay on this trail. You'll continue up a wide and fairly easy track. There is a lot of cover on this trail and a few water crossings. Around 4 miles into the hike, you'll reach a large basin. From here, you can see the pass to the lake to the southwest. Once you reach the pass, it is a short drop to White Pine Lake. Enjoy the refreshing waters of the lake!
