Scout Falls via Mount Timpanogos Trail is a 4.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Alpine, Utah that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from May until October.
Beautiful trail. So glad I read the reviews before or I wouldn't have known where the trailhead was. Just stick to the Timp trail and pass the ranger box. The trail was easy for my little ones but the difficulty came in the last bit to actually see the falls but they bravely climbed the rocks and got their view of the waterfall.
This hike is easy and it is not 9.5 miles as it's stated in the decription, it's about 4 miles roundtrip. The falls are very small but beautiful. There are no signs that states where the trail begins but it is the same trail that takes you to Emerald Lake and Mount Timpanogos Summit. The views are very nice and the hike is friendly enough for kids.
I liked this hike - beautiful views, tree coverage and well maintained. The trail is not marked - so reading the reviews was very helpful. Right before the falls was a series of steep loose rocks which were a bit unsafe.
This hike is GORGEOUS! My husband and I took our daughter (8) and it was the perfect length for her. It was also easy. Make sure to read through all reviews before heading out; there is some great advice that saved us time and difficulty! My main suggestion is to head to the RIGHT when the trail forks. It will take you right up to the falls, no scrambling required! The leaves are beginning to change, so get up there soon!
Love this hike !!! Nice shade, pretty easy, lots of fun creeks to go through, and a nice beautiful waterfall at the top!
Easy but beautiful hike. Fun to do with the kids.
Great, short hike. As other reviews have said- this is not 9 miles. It's about 4 miles to get to the falls and back. The falls are small but the surrounds are very pretty all the way up.
It was a great easy trail for kids. Just don't miss the left turn to the falls, the sign that we had remembered from previous years wasn't there anymore.
