It is almost time again for our annual men’s backpacking trip! This year we are going to White Pine Lake, July 17-18.
We will have two groups leaving at different times. If you can take off work Friday, you can carpool with the early group that will leave around 8 am and spend the day hiking and setting up camp.
If you can’t take off Friday, there will be another group leaving later in the day. There should be plenty of daylight to get to camp before it gets completely dark. We’ll have walkie-talkies for each group to make sure we can communicate and find each other.
Be sure to bring your own food, water, a tent or hammock (or get with someone that you can share a tent with), fishing pole, and anything else you might need to enjoy the great outdoors.
Let us know if you have any questions about the trip.
**Here are the details on the area and hike itself:
About the trail: White Pine Lake Trail is a 7.8 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Logan, Utah that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from July until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
White Pine Lake trail is easy to follow, but you will be gradually climbing the ridge dividing Tony Grove Lake and White Pine Lake. From the ridge, the trail drops steeply down to White Pine Lake.
About the lake: White Pine Lake is a small picturesque lake nestled in a cirque between Mt. Magog and Mt. Gog. The Forest Service rerouted the trail in 1975, as well as constructing a bridge over White Pine Creek. There are several campsites and a toilet on the north side of the lake.”
