Pheifferhorn

9 miles round trip
3,800 ft. elevation gain
Hike/scramble

I hiked up to Pheifferhorn this week with a couple friends.  The hike took 6 hours total.  We started at the White Pine Trailhead and followed the trail to Red Pine Lake where the snow began to be a bit of a nuisance, but still not bad.  Once on the ridge, there was little snow.  We just followed the trail to the summit.  This is one of the easier hikes to a 11,000 ft. peak in the Wasatch and it's one of my favorites.
