Best hike of the season!

Ran this trail with a friend from Romania on Sunday Aug, 19th. There were quite a few people on the trail, but all respected trail runners...THANK YOU!

The trail on the back side of Tibble Fork is no longer a nice hike. The old trail is gone or only partly there.

A beautiful trail that starts up with a wide open incline across ski hills. Then you get to the forested area and it’s beautiful plus you see 3 alpine lakes. Stop at Lake Martha to look for deer and moose hiding on the left side of the small lake. Lots of hikers but still opportunities to see marmots, squirrels, chippies and a few deer and moose.

Took me a lot longer to get up than I thought it would, amazing views, difficult but completely worth doing if you are prepared and bring plenty of water!

Started at 3pm, plenty of parking available and only a handful of other hikers on the trail...most were returning from the Summit. Really enjoyed the switchbacks and the trail was easy to follow to the Saddle. Took a wrong turn from the Saddle to the Summit. FOLLOW THE STACKED ROCKS! I followed footprints leading me off of the trail onto a pretty steep/cliffy grade. Took a minute for me to backtrack and find the trail again. The view from the Summit was incredible...definitely a must see! And I was surprised to be the only one up there for almost an hour.
The hike back was a fun adventure with a few rain showers, spotting more wildlife (mountain goat/deer) and about 2 hrs of hiking in the dark. The lightning show was breathtaking! Made it back to the parking lot just before 11pm.
Needs for my hike included: Hydrating well before the hike to prevent cramping, sunscreen, sunglasses, an extra layer of clothing for the Summit and after dark, rain poncho, and head lamp. Took up 2L of water (had plenty left over that we gave to a family that was running low) and some snacks to keep my energy up (fruit leather, nut rolls, jerky).
Excited to hike Timp again soon and hope this review helps for any first time Timp hikers.

Good family trail

Beautiful hike. Hardly saw anyone else on trail. A bit confusing when you get closer to the waterfall but we were able to find a nice shady spot near the water.

Beautiful hike. The waterfall is worth the effort. There is overflow parking just past the trailhead, heading into little cottonwood. Can get really busy on saturdays and holidays.

very peaceful hike. We backpacked our gear in for camping at the lake. too us 2 hours and 50 minutes with 20 to 30 lbs packs. we left at 5pm. it was perfect. it really shouldn't matter what time you go hiking on this Trail because it is very covered. the last mile is definitely little steeper but nothing extreme. recommended for a longer medium difficulty hike. take extra water.

Great hike. Many trails, easy to get off on a different path

Went on a Saturday in August with my family of four, including a four-year-old and seven-year-old. We got there at 6 AM, so we got on the trail before anyone else, but on the way down it was like a conga line going up to the falls. The trail was beautiful and the falls were pretty. We didn’t let the kids do the scramble up to the top off the falls although I did and enjoyed that little challenge at the end of the trail. The rest of the trail was great for both of my kids.

First hike for me. Little bit out of shape. Found the initial 0.5 mile moderately difficult and last 0.9 miles really hard. It's full of rocks and little steeper. I had to take breaks to catch the breath and continue in that last stretch. Do yourself a favor wearing good hiking shoes.
The lake/reservoir was dry and the waterfall was not breathtaking. May be August is not the month if you want to see a beautiful waterfall and lake. But the view of the valley from the waterfall was awesome.
Start by 7am to beat the crowd and heat.

Beautiful lake, easy hike for kids. Flat boardwalk. Neat visitors center.

We started at 5:30 AM on Friday and the parking lot was relatively empty. There are some stunning views as you get farther up the mountain! Keep in mind that the hike is very difficult if you are not an advanced hiker. I found that it was constant gradual uphill with sections of steep uphill hiking and some rock scrambling/steps. I was relieved that I brought Gatorade for the hike. Bring a jacket for the early morning start and the top. It can get pretty chilly. Also, be on the lookout for wildlife. We ran into a massive bull moose on our way up. I personally like the Timpooneke trail better because I feel like it is easier (better for trail running etc.), but I was glad that I ventured to the other side of the mountain. This trail isn't as heavily trafficked as Timpooneke.

Decided to finally hike Mt. Olympus again as it had been over 20 years when I did it as a teenager. I got off to a rough start as I didn't see the trail going up at the rock at the bottom of the trail and followed the Porter Rockwell Trail for a half mile before realizing I wasn't actually on the trail for Mt. Olympus. Going up is a grind with very little breaks in incline till the saddle. Bouldering up was hard, but manageable. The views were amazing. I did run into a rattlesnake on the trail halfway down. I gave it plenty of distance and walked around the rock it was half hiding under. Overall a great, but difficult hike!

I hiked this trail with my brother after doing Mount Olympus as a warmup. We got to the parking lot at 4:30 AM and it was already 3/4 full. The hike up was beautiful including stewart falls. We ran into multiple groups of mountain goats. My brother who wasn't in the best of shape turned around at Emerald Lake while I continued on through the mile long boulder field and then up to the summit. Breathtaking views at the top. I quickly came down. Overall a great hike.

super easy trail, great for older folks and little toddler legs

Beatiful sites along the trail. Difficult, but well worth the effort! Views from the top were unreal. There weren’t many wildflowers along the trail though. Started at 4 am and the parking lot was mostly full.

The other reviews don't lie, this is a non-stop uphill battle from the start all the way to the lake. the trail is very shaded in the early morning but not very shaded in the afternoon. takes lots of water or a purifier to replenish. totally worth all the pain though!

Don't be scared away by some of the other reviews! This is a great hike. Yes, it does have some steeper, more technical sections. Parts of it are more difficult than anything you would see on Timp, but overall I would say it's less difficult than Timp and much shorter. On the other hand, it's significantly easier than Provo Peak hiked from the valley. The steep section is maybe half of Provo Peak's ascent. The view from the top is amazing and hiking along the ridge can be pretty fun!

As many people have said, stay on the ridge. There are two false peaks. The first one is after Wolf Pass (just after hiking around the side of North Peak). The ascent here is the most strenuous. The second false peak is right before Nebo. Near the top of each of these, there are many paths leading off to the left. These are especially deceiving because the actual trail can be difficult to see when looking up from below. These other paths are not the trail and are much more difficult and even dangerous. For both false peaks, you want to go straight over the top of the peak. You can see in my recording that on the ascent we went off to the left for both peaks, which didn't turn out well. Try to follow the path we took on the descent, just straight over the peaks.

We summited in just under 2.5 hours, with maybe 10 minutes of breaks included in that. After about 20 minutes on the summit, we made it down in about 1.5 hours with a bit of trail running.

Amazing hike! Started around 7:30am and made it to the top around 10:30am, taking about a 20 minute break. It had rained the night before, so the weather on the way up was wonderful. Also starting early in the morning made it so the majority of the hike on the way up was all in the shade. There is also good shade coverage from trees the higher you climb. Definitely steep, especially near the top-you end up doing more bouldering than actual hiking. The view at the top is worth it! Ran most of the way back down, legs were very shaky at the bottom and stepping onto the road asphalt felt like walking on a soft cushion after the trail running. Didn’t drink as much water as I thought -not quite 2L and I still felt very hydrated. Definitely a hike to check off your list!

we did 4 of the lakes, well worth it. saw a huge moose about 15 paces from us, as well as a lot of other wildlife. lake mary was moderately trafficked, but catherine and the smaller one we saw only had one or two others in sight. we only saw two other people on the actual loop (they worked for the watershed) but there seemed to be people both going to mary or catherine, just not via the loop.

longest .7 of my life...

great view from top. so close to reach from town.

I love this trail! So many great views, wildlife, and scenery.

Took our 2 year old on this hike and he made it about a quarter to a third of the way on his own before he got tired. Although that may have been because it was getting late. It was about 7 pm when we started the hike. Either way it was a great hike. Very fun and quick even with a two year old.

A fun little nature walk with our 2 year old. We actually didn't walk around the whole thing this time. Instead we decided to do the Lake Solitude hike to test out our little guy. He did wonderful on both this walk and the hike.
