Trail shared by Tom Hanson

A shortcut when doing the Brim Trail or the best way to access an amazing overlook.

Family Friendly This wide path can be used to make smaller loops, and can be a fun hike to the viewpoint on its own.

Description

The White Pine Basin is simply a short cut if you have someone in your group that needs to get back to the parking area. If taken from the parking lot, there is a mild descent, followed by a moderate climb once you've intersected with the Brim Trail. The trail in the meadow is a simple doubletrack with no features worth mentioning. There is an excellent viewpoint at the end of this trail, but you'll want to use the Brim Trail to access the overlook! The meadow section of the trail is a gentle doubletrack, but the views are pleasant and worth while.

It's worth noting that the character of the trail changes slightly after the meadow portion. From about the 1.25 mile mark, the trail becomes a strenuous little out and back with an amazing view of the Pineview Reservoir. Just head up the doubletrack on the south end of the Brim Trail and work your way to the top. The view looking back into Powder Mountain is spectacular and worth the grind.

Even though this is a doubletrack it does not feel like you are on a dirt road. Instead, the trail seems more like you are on parallel single tracks. You'll need to switch from one side to the other as you work your way up and down the trail.
