Overview

"Lake Blanche is a classic hiking destination in the Twin Peaks Wilderness Area. The trail meanders through the shade of scrub oak and aspen trees, and opens up intermittently where you can get views of the opposing quartzite mountains as well as Great Salt Lake. The dramatic views near the lake of the Salt Lake Valley and the lake itself are iconic landscapes in Utah's Wasatch mountain range. Sundial Peak rises above the lake. Two other small lakes (Florence and Lillian) are found in the area and can be visited by hiking short, signed spur trails."
