The hike was nice and relatively easy. Lots of little kids on the trail who seemed to do just fine. Although it was a hot day, there is plenty of shade along the trail. The trail is filled with a very fine dust, so be ready to get dirty!

Great trail and unique way to view both Utah valley and Heber valley (incredible views!). I’ve always enjoyed breaking up the hike into two parts: hiking up and setting up camp, then summiting early in the morning.

Trail is well marked from base to summit. After reaching the saddle, there is some exposure to both sides of the mountain so be careful with young hikers and keep them near (not as intense as angels landing, but you can get an idea).

Be prepared to see several people as the trail is very popular! Full moon and no moon nights are the most popular amongst other hikers.

Truly breathtaking! Started the trail around noon and got back to the car at 9PM. Moderate incline until the very end, but nothing very difficult - the length is what starts to wear you down. Wildflowers still in bloom and spotted some friendly goats along the way. A must do experience.

Beautiful hike!!!!

Beautiful fun trail. Very easy, good for kids.

I summited Mt. Timp last fall via Aspen Grove. The lookout at the farthest end of this hike opened up to a very nice view of a large portion of my Mt. Timp hike bringing back memories of each section of that hike.
I too had issues on this hike with pesky flying bugs that seemed to enjoy repeatedly flying around my head. I had luck keeping them at bay with a small leafy Aspen branch in hand swung around as needed.

Really pretty not too hard hike. An incredible view which was worth the bugs that accompany you. Although if the hike was much longer I might not have been able to give such a high review due to the little buggers.

pretty difficult hike but well worth the views.

We got to the parking lot at 5:30am and it was full, so make sure to come early if you want a spot. Other than that it was a gorgeous hike! Lots of wild flowers, we saw multiple goats, deer, and even a moose was near the trail as we came around a corner. It took us about 5 hours up and 3 down.

Picked an amazing day to hike timpanogos. Started at 7 am. It was overcast so it stayed cool all day and even rained a bit. I would say this is rated difficult just because of the distance. I think the elevation gain is moderate. It was a gorgeous hike and the wildflowers are spectacular right now. Go soon before you miss them!! Took me 4 hours to get to the saddle, 5 to the summit and five to get back down.(down is always harder for my knees so I take it slow!) I saw the infamous mountain goat mama and baby, chipmunks, and deer. Gorgeous hike and definitely worth going to the very top. There was seriously a party going on up there.

I love the aspens along the trail and there are some beautiful look outs, especially at the end. We went on a Saturday morning in the summer and there were a lot of other hikers of all ages out on the trail. We went at a slow/leisurely pace and it took us about 2.5ish hours total.

the trail gets really rocky. my four year old kept tripping but she kept going. the end with the river and waterfall is worth the hike specially on a hot day. beautiful hike and mostly shaded.

The hike round trip is little less than 4 miles and fairly easy! Kid and dog friendly! Most bigger dogs were on a leash and gratefully people pick up after their pets! You might see soiled bags hanging from trees, but they will pick it up on their way back out. The waterfall is amazing! We saw group of people rappelling down the waterfall! They have all the fancy equipment, so it safe to watch! Not too many wildflowers compared to other trails, but there are picture worthy! Definitely coming back again before the season ends!

Great workout. Lots of people (several trail runners) on a narrow trail, but everyone was friendly. Watch out for stinging nettle.

I love this hike. Watch for stinging nettle.

Beautiful views along the whole trail! We went on the 4th of July and it wasn’t crowded at all! The first half is pretty steep, bring enough water on a hot day! Also if you want to get down in the falls, you’ll have to climb so rocks/in some water but it was so worth it!

We loved this hike! While the HOARDS of people in the parking lot were headed toward Stewart Falls, we took the trail to Timpanogas Falls and had the place to ourselves. We had 8 kids with us (15, 14, 12, 12, 11, 10, 8, and 7), and while two of them complained a bit about the heat on the way up (it was 75 degrees but very sunny and felt hotter than that at 9:40am), everyone handled the trail great. The trail did have some nice shady spots to rest. There was stinging nettle on the final descent to the Falls and several of us got stung, but it wasn’t anything the icy water couldn’t fix. We had a great time climbing around the falls and having a nice snack. My sister brought her dog on a leash, and he had a fabulous time. No other signs of doggies on the trail. I wasn’t expecting the falls to be so pretty and majestic (compared to other waterfalls we hiked to—except for Stewart Falls, of course). Wonderful, secluded place with incredible views!

One of our favorites

My wife hates hiking and she loved this trail. It's probably the best combination around of ease and scenery. Great for a relaxing Sunday morning!

Amazing hike. Starts a little slowly, but you'll be grateful for it on the way back! The first waterfall is maybe a mile in, and is the perfect way to refresh after the first incline. Watch out for stinging nettles though! Great trail for in-shape dogs. I loved letting my tiny herd of canines play in the crystal clear mountain water. Best hike I've done this year!

Great hike with beautiful views. Its definitely not an “easy” hike. But not too bad.
Worth the hike!

Well tracked trail, and very easy for all abilities. Brought my dog, and the trail got too hot for her paws, I would recommend going later in the day to get better shade, unless you want to carry your dog through the hot spots. The falls are a perfect place to cool off, some micro-trash by the falls.

What a beautiful hike. It was 8 miles to the summit, took me about 6 hours to reach it. I met another hiker who said it only took him 3 hours. I like to stop a take photos, enjoy the views. 5 miles up the side of the mountain to what I call the Grand Cirque. Great view if Timp and the saddle to the right. Beautiful meadows of wildflowers. And I can see the trail from Aspen Grove crossing the long rock slide/snow field. That’s a much tougher hike. The final climb up from the saddle is like a giant staircase. 40,000 steps total. I’m ready to go again. Go say hi to the goats.

Very strenuous. We hiked this on a Saturday, busiest day. We arrived at the trailhead parking lot at 5 am and the lot was half full. I started off in pants but changed into shorts about 1 mile up the trail. I suggest shorts on a warm day but bring a hoodie for the summit, it gets windy and chilly. We summited at 11:30 am. We all had 3 liter water bladders in our packs but that wasn't enough for a hot day. We all ran dry on the way down with 6 miles left to go. My GPS said 15.4 miles total. There was a little patch of snow, about 100 yds, on the talus pile between Emerald Lake and the saddle. The last mile from the saddle to the summit is the most strenuous. It is very steep and involves climbing stepped rocks on the steep western face of the slope. We arrived back to the trailhead at 4:30 pm (11.5 hrs total). We saw a moose with 2 calves and 4 mtn goats. The waterfalls helped us keep cool on the way back down.

Amazing hike today. The views were amazing. We started at 5am and the parking lot was full. Really hot until we reached higher elevation. A lot of people.

Unbelievable and pretty tough. We took our time and stopped to enjoy some moments along the way. 9 1/2 hours total. Mountain Goats... yes!!!! Mamas with babies. I wasn’t afraid until other “humans” started acting stupid! Getting with in feet of the goats to take selfies, getting between mamas and babies. Completely unaware that by getting close to the goats, they were scaring them and pushing them toward us. Several times during the different encounters I thought someone was going to get charged. I hate breaking trail, but there were 4 goats and 2 extremely stupid humans and I was genuinely afraid for the safety of our little group. I was concerned, initially for the other hiker, until he kept opening his mouth! After that, my concern retreated and we just got ourselves clear. I felt very sad for this little goat family. They were scared, and because of that, very aggressive. Please be respectful of the animals. We are guests in THEIR homes!

I love this trail... Not many people. I can take my dog and let him go crazy. The trail is nice and steep. It's a great workout. In fact it is part of my weekly routine, 3 workout days and 3 hiking days. With this schedule I've lost 45lbs. in 2 months. Slate Canyon has been a big part of that.

Beautiful hike. No water to pump after scout falls, bring a lot.

Great trail with lots of shade. Steep in parts but only for short periods. Love the horse trough for our pups to drink from at about the midpoint. And stunning views throughout with hardly any crowds!
