Explore the most popular views trails in Mount Timpanogos Wilderness with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Not sure I would agree with the “easy”designation. There are some passages that are the least little bit technical, especially for elders with bad knees. That said the trip to the waterfall is well worth it. The view is indeed lovely, There are rocks to sit on and have a snack, the children can scramble around. The aspens are lovely and from the waterfall you can see magnificent homes across the way.

This trail was beautiful! It doesn’t have very much shade, so make sure to bring lots of water and sunscreen. It was definitely a nice hike without being difficult. We did see three rattlesnakes while hiking, so just be aware of your surroundings!

Possible with crampons and ice axe.

Beautiful! Entrance fee, dog friendly, popular hike. Took us about 2 hours-ish out and back with a toddler in a hiking backpack. Narrow and steep in spots, a good work out for beginner hikers. Would do it again!

A good trail for all hiking levels. Make sure you have $6 if you don’t have a National Park Pass to utilize the parking lot for the trail. Very crowded on a Saturday, but hikers on the trail were very good to look out for each other on the more narrow portions. Several dogs not on leashes so just be aware if you are taking small children as we saw a few get run over accidentally by eager doggos on the trail. Overall a Saturday well spent with amazing views!

Awesome view, definitely worth the hike!

My date and I started at Dry Canyon parking lot and kept to the main trail on the way up.
If I was to split the hike into thirds, I’d say there’s the approach which takes you past the main cliffs of Dry Canyon and up to the first real split. The right fork takes you to Little Baldy, the left takes you up to Big Baldy. Then the second third takes you up the valley that separates Little and Big and up to the spine of Big. Finally, the last third consists of hiking the back spine of Big Baldy until you summit. The second third is definitely the toughest portion. You’re very much just hiking in a straight shot up a big rain gutter - no switchbacks. Most of it is surrounded by oak brush until it starts to open up at the end before the spine, and you start to get rewarded with some pretty sweet views. There are a couple other turns to be aware of before you set off.
This hike is 78% of the elevation gain of summiting Timpanogos via the Timpooneke Trail, just to give you some perspective. My date and I summited in just under 3 hrs and descended in 1. It was a KILLER pace for us since it was our first real hike of the season. We hiked back down the way we came

Definitely recommend - just give yourself some more time than we did!

*BE AWARE* the point at which you turn left to head up the spine is obvious and is marked by a campfire. You can’t miss it.

Beautiful trail with an excellent destination. Four stars just because it is very busy and you have to pay to enter the national forest.

Made it four miles, after that it was just pure snow with no tracks. Incredible views. Few more weeks to thaw out!

Love this trail! Leads to a gorgeous waterfall at the end. Have done it with kids and it’s very user friendly.

Nice trail. Aspen trees everywhere. Took a little less than two hours to complete for myself and my dog. Narrow trail at points but for the most part very relaxing and beautiful hike. Entrance fee to get to trail head.

this was my second hike. I'm not sure I would rate it 'easy', as I am just beginning to take an active role in my health and started hiking last week. it is definitely beautiful. it's a narrow Trail, with tree roots sticking up throughout the middle of the trail. there are inclines, that are a great workout, but a little difficult if you're just starting out hiking.

road to get to this trail was closed today. could only park 1.5 miles away. didn't want to walk that far with my 2 year old to get to the trail so did pine hollow instead. not trying to give this trail a bad review cause we intend to do it later but check road is open first if you're planning to go soon. updated to add: found out road is closed until "late May, early June" so keep in mind most trails in this canyon will be inaccessible until June each year, even if they are perfectly hikeable by April or May.

An easy hike with a gorgeous waterfall at the end! Usually pretty busy on weekends.

Easy hike with views of Sundance Resort—not terribly remote or wild.

We took our 2 year old and dog and thought it was a great trail. We went on a Monday so it wasn't very crowded for us but I imagine it getting busy on weekends. Good amounts of shade especially the first mile or so but mostly sun the second mile so keep that in mind in the summer especially. our 2 year old was able to hike himself for about 1 mile of the trail (before he wanted to be carried cause he got tired) so I'd say this is definitely a kid friendly trail. there are parts that have rocks or roots but they're pretty easy to maneuver around. There's a few parts that are more steep and/or rocky towards the end that younger kids/toddlers might need help with. the falls are very pretty and there's some shade and sun at the end to rest and enjoy the view depending on which you prefer. :) no snow on trail and hardly any mud either.

It was breathtaking!! So glad we braved it in the rain!!

Loved this hike. It was a bit of a butt kicker for only being 7 miles. We went up the back side then down the trail on the face. The way down was insanely steep and hard on the knees so I recommend sticking to the suggested route. Overall, a fun little hike!

Such a beautiful hike! We went up the front trail which was fairly steep but so worth it! We went back down the back way and saw many different types of water falls and a beautiful view of Timp on one side and Lake Utah on the other. Highly recommend to those who are in shape!

We ended up on this trail when we got lost. It had wonderful views and tons of wildlife.

Overall was a very amazing hike. We were only able to get 3.25 miles from trailhead as we ended up running into the snow fields. Took us 1 hour and 40 minutes to hit this point. Gained 1761 in elevation and maxed out at 8685 ft. Snow is very slick and without appropriate gear it ended our run to the summit. It will likely be some time before it is passable without any micro spikes or other appropriate gear. There is a 50 ft waterfall that was quite beautiful to see as the snow continues to melt. The only advice I will throw out there, not being from the area is that it costs $6 dollars to park and hike for a three day pass. Make sure you bring cash. Not sure if this is active so be sure to inquire. Would recommend this hike.

I’ve done this trail 15 times in the past year and a half from pretty much every trail. It’s a great summit, amazing views of the valley. If your going to do this make sure to bring lots of water and some food, it can be a strenuous hike. Other than that it’s best hiked I think in the early spring and late fall. On a side note if your up there for the sunset it gets fealty cold really fast. Happy hiking!

The trail isn’t as green as it will likely get by fall, but still worth the effort. I saw 2 small snakes on the trail, probably harmless, but thought you should know.

The Dry canyon trail makes this a very attainable summit! It was a good little hike with some decent elevation gains, not technical at all just gradual climbs.

One of top two fav hikes while in the area. This trail is a superb mix of shady dirt paths, gravel and rocky terrain learning to one of the best waterfalls I’ve ever seen. Not many people around on a weekday morning. The waterfall is one of the few you can confidently play in, since the water isn’t rushing at the bottom.

There are pit toilets. A $6 trail pass is required but is self service, bring exact change.

Cool trail for a moderate, fun hike. Bring $6 to pay for parking in the Uinta National Forest. I love that this trail allows dogs off-leash.

We started at 9 a.m. on a day that was forecasted to reach highs of 80 degrees and it was perfect as it started to get pretty hot as we were going back down.

Plus, it starts to get busier towards the middle of the day. This is Provo so of course, lots of families and big groups hiking together. Parts of the trail are narrow so there’s a lot of waiting when there are people coming up as you go down.

The Falls aren’t anything spectacular, actually quite underwhelming. But it’s a good option for a short, quick hike (Took us 2 hours round-trip and that’s us taking our time). It gets steeper during the last part near the waterfall. Personally, if I’m in Provo Canyon, I’d go to Bridal Veil Falls instead if you’re just looking for a good view.

Quick and easy hike with some great views. About a 45 min hike both ways. VERY busy. Lots of people on the trail and at the falls. Still a fun hike.

Great trail, but I would call it more of a moderate trail than an easy one. There is quite a bit of elevation change and some mildly steep areas towards the end. The falls are a fun stop at the end of the trail.

Very pretty

Hi Alyssa. Did you hike Timpooneke to the glacier this year (2018)? I'm looking for a snow report on the Aspen Grove side (your descent).
