Hiked the trail to the pass but didn't make the last 0.6 of a mile to the overlook. Amazing views

Nice area. Lots of other trails. I Would like or come back in the spring

Steady climb to Big Mountain. If you like loops you can continue on the Great Western trail to Lookout Peak and then to Affleck Park

Good, short hike with nice views of the lake and surrounding communities. I appreciated the signage along the trail to help me decide if I wanted to extend the loop by checking out one of the spur trails.

This is a really tough hike in the snow. We went on Sunday 10/28 and from about mile 3 onwards it was all in snow. We'd tried on Thursday and had only got as far as the meadow as the winds were so strong we couldn't even see our own tracks and couldn't find the trail. We managed to summit on Sunday but from the saddle to the hut and back again was very windy and very sketchy. If you've never done this before (which I hadn't), it's definitely not for the faint-hearted. Once over the saddle, the drops are very very steep and, I thought, very very scary. The views, however, are spectacular and the trail was pretty easy to follow. The whole thing took us 10 hours as it was slow going in the snow, so we came out in the dark. Be prepared and stay safe!

on Tungsten Lake

We camped here after summiting King's Peak. The trail from Five-Point Lake to Tungsten Lake is up and down with multiple creek crossings. Follow the Cairns across the meadow. We passed no one and no one was camped at Tungsten lake.
There are several lakes or ponds for filtering water and then there's a good stream that will be your last chance for water before King's Peak summit. Location: 40.7486713  -110.4413601

We hiked this over Labor day weekend. The views and wildlife we saw were totally worth the hard hike. It was amazing!

Not a hike, but a gentle walk. Beautiful perfect for elderly or little kids. 3 loops to chose from. Lots of benches to rest and Rockwall areas to sit on too.

Beautiful hike!! Today the snow was about a foot deep on one section of the trail, but we were able to follow others' footsteps and really enjoyed the hike. It took us a little over two hours.

Unable to hike now due to snow. I’m sure this hike is wonderful, but just wanted this review to be on here so people know the condition of the trail.

This was my first time on the trail. As of yesterday, it will take breaking trail for the final two miles to get to the summit. I wasn't willing to go further than the tracks went. There was a wind slab just before "the meadow" that I wasn't willing to cross, as well as some other evidence of snow instability along the way. I wanted to write this review to let people know that this trail is probably a ski/mountaineering adventure and not a hike at this point (probably from about mile 4) until next season. In addition, I was glad I had microspikes on my shoes after the first mile. It was intermittent ice/snow and mud for a couple miles and then straight snow after that.

This is an easy and fun family trail. We hiked from the park at the top of Sky Lark Lane to the lookout point and back. This part of the trail was shaded almost the whole way, and the fall colors were beautiful. my kids also enjoyed playing at the park when we were done.

Nice easy trail in north Salt Lake City with dog off-leash. Met by a stray golden retriever. Hot day. Beautiful views of the city and great Salt Lake. Had to contend with a few mountain bikers on trails that criss-crossed the hiking trail making it a bit hectic for the free running dogs.

love this hike ALOT.

First of all let me say WOW! We are from the Midwest and this was the third hike of our short stay. We wanted to go out with a Bang! And it felt like we did. We chose this hike based on reviews on this site so let me add my .02 (keep in mind we live at 800 ft.). We didn’t get to the lot as early as we had hoped but we started out just before 0900. Gradual climb and to be honest we got a little cocky, took our time and tons of photos. After we hit the first meadow and headed up it got a little steeper and the snow started at 8200 feet, the views were beautiful. We honestly didn’t know what we were in for as we knew (hoped) to crest but we saw the peak here and there through all the weather that came through. When we hit the last meadow before the push to the saddle we started running into what appeared to us were locals who actually knew what they were doing. We even believe that we met the famous “Ben”. We started running into a few people who decided not to go further or had been warned of the conditions at the saddle and had already turned around or stopped their ascent. If we actually met “Ben” he had also decided to not even head to the saddle. We had traveled too far to quit and the altitude clearly clouded our judgement (Ha) so we continued. We followed up who to us must have been an Olympian (she was nicknamed the Olympian) as well as two runners. The trip to the saddle was super sketchy as there was ice under the snow (3”) on the rocks but we had made it. We encountered both runners later who tried to reach the peak but neither did. At the saddle we talked to the “olympian” who was super nice and it sounded like she had made this hike before. Her group backed out due to weather so she came up on her own. After talking to her for a few minutes she also decided not to try and reach the summit. Visibility was about 30 feet and snow was getting deeper. I decided that I loved my wife so we opted out. “The Olympian “ was kind enough to take a few pictures of us and we followed her down. The hike was amazing and was plenty difficult. The people that we encountered were awesome. If you get a chance to try, make sure you do it. Make sure to bring plenty of water and fuel.

Early October colors were the best I’ve ever seen. So much beauty in a extremely kid friendly hiking location. After we left here we took the Alpine Scenic road over to Sundance for lunch at the deli. Incredible place and highly recommended.

It was a crazy adventure up to Mtn. Timpanogos Summit! There was 40 mph wind, rain, snow, clouds, and sunshine all together. It was a fun Utah hiking experience that’s for sure! I definitely learned to come in July- Mid August while the wild flowers are blooming and the sunshine is shining! Don’t go in October. Haha! Also, you’ll see so many mountain goats! They do love to get their photos taken and chill on the trail, but don’t get too close.
It’s a challenging hike and some sections are steep, so plan for 6-8 hours of the day hiking (based off your pace or group size). I highly recommend going with at least one buddy. Bring enough food (like a snack & a lunch), at least 2 liters or more of water, a light-weight windbreaker, and a extra pair of socks or dry shirt to change into for hike back down (it’s definitely worth it).
Have a fun adventure and stay safe out there.

Amazing hike/trail Run! You will likely see wildlife, moose, deer, mountain goats, jackalobes... ok maybe not the last one.
Anyway, if its your first time hiking Timpanogos bring one more layer of clothes than you think will need. It's usually super Humid, windy and much colder at the top than you would guess.
Bring more FOOD than you might think you need and multiple bottles of WATER! Your hike will go so much better if you eat and drink enough. remember to snack/fuel frequently.

I also used strava on this trail and it told me Out and Back is actually 16 ish miles. Just an FYI.
This is a stunningly beautiful hike. You are going to love it.
Have fun!

I really wanted to love this trail, and I did! great for beginners and photographers who want lots of little streams and mini waterfalls.

Hiked on Sept 29, 2018; mostly sunny with daily high around 75 degrees, left from Timpooneke. This is the best weekend for changing leaves, which explains the large crowds. At 4:00 am about 70% of the parking lot was filled. (If you haven’t paid, use the envelopes to avoid a ticket, which we saw on many cars after we returned.) We started at 4:30 am, hiked in dark with headlamps until about 7:30. This means we hiked through the fall colors in total dark, completely missing them on the way up. This is a long hike, but also probably the easiest of the big peaks in the area. Trails are very nice and easy to follow, with relatively uniform ascent the entire way. There is nothing dangerous or technical, it’s just long. A cold, strong wind from the west was blowing on the west side of the mountain, which you hit at the saddle. Light windbreaker was much more valuable than heavier clothes that breathes because the wind goes right through that. Otherwise, the west side was very pleasant. Trail was very busy. We needed about 3 quarts of water. Total trip was a bit over 8 hours, which included a few, but not many, rest periods.

Nice trail that was great for my dog. Has some great overlooks for views. Some parts are very narrow so make sure you are aware with the bikers using the trail. Leaves are turning very pretty up here.

September 30, 2018. Driving to Mt Timp, it was sunny and warm for late September with temps close to 70 in Heber at 7:45. The summit of Timp looks extremely imposing from a distance but the hike is quite gentle for the first 6 miles. The fall foliage was peaking so the entire valley was red and yellow. As we got above the tree line, the wind really started to pick up and the temps started to drop. Once we got on the ridge, the wind was howling at about 30-40 mph but luckily you hike to the summit on the west side of the mountain so the wind was pushing you into the mountain. The final mile to the summit is steep but it doesn’t require any true bouldering. The summit has a cool metal open hut which provides a little reprieve from the wind. The summit offers amazing views of Provo/Utah Lake to the southwest and Heber to the Northeast. We saw some impressive mountain goats on the way down. It took us 4 hours up with about a 20min lunch break and 3 hours down. Round trip was 14.5 miles.

I love this place. I always bring my dog and boyfriend to this trip whenever we are available. It’s a very peaceful place to walk around and see pretty plants around the water.

This was 100% hardest trail I’ve ever done. It took us 10.5 hours to hike all the way to the top summit. I am not the most physically fit person and my knee was killing me by the end but it’s worth it! Watch out for high winds at the Top ( an extra windbreaker or sweater) and take enough water! On our way down we did spot a black bear, moose, and deer ( dusk) - of your not fast make sure you pack a headlamp, it was very helpful ( specially if you start you up hike anytime after 9am

beautiful

Many lakes and a couple great view points. An easy-moderate hike that gives you a good taste of the Uintas

Challenging trail climb for any serious trail runner. Compared to other trails the only steep sections are on the Saddle. First 6.5 miles of climbing are gradual ascents with some descents and flat terrains in the meadow to regain your pace. However, the hidden rocks as tree stumps from start to finish and the completely all rock portions make this a difficult and treacherous attempt for any serious trails runners legs from avoiding any injuries. Unless- your well trained the return trip down the mountain will break your knees and sting your quads muscles. Nonetheless- a grand epic experience one must not leave out!

We went counter clockwise. Stunning views at top. Beautiful alpine the rest of the route, with many wild flowers in bloom. Peaceful and serene!

Great hike with a great reward at the end. The cave lets you cool down before descending.
