After a pleasant drive up Logan Canyon, we arrived at the Tony Grove trailhead. The trail in is well maintained we enjoyed diverse, pristine vistas and landscapes along the journey (1 hour, 45 min). We were simply blown away when we arrived at White Pine Lake. The crystaline little lake was framed by towering cliffs and wildflowers. The campsites were clean and well maintained. There is no better place to enjoy nature than White Pine Lake.
I've recently been hiking a lot of peaks, but I had a little extra time after hiking Mt Naomi and decided to venture over to White Pine Lake. The trail splits from the Mt Naomi trail about 1/4 mile from the TH w/the White Pine Lake trail splitting off to the right. The trail doesn't gain much altitude as it heads toward Mt Gog and Mt Magog (Great names!). Supposedly there is normally an abundance of wildflowers along the trail, but the drought has diminished there presence this year. There are still quite a few, but not the profusion that the guidebook exclaims.
This is a great afternoon hike that doesn't require extreme levels of fitness or planning. The lake is spledid and would be a good place for a picnic (one that could be carried in a backpack, a basket would be awfully unwieldy along the trail)
