There are two trails to the top of Timpanogos. This is the Aspen Grove trail. The other trail is the Timpooneke Trail. The Aspen Grove trail initially contains many switchbacks featuring many waterfalls and amazing views. The trail reaches a beautiful meadow area with some small lakes and the well-known Emerald Lake. The trail then stretches towards the saddle across a boulder field where it joins with the Timpooneke trail offering great views of Utah Valley. The trail then travels up the ridge towards the summit.

Hit the trail after a long day at work. Didn't go very far, but from 1 spot we counted 28 waterfalls! What a beautiful place!

Me And my 13 year old son hiked it on July 8th 2017. We left at 530 am and reached the saddle at 1030. made the summit st 1130 am. very beautiful hike. still alot of snow, but very fun to slide down the glaciers. challenging hike but well worth it . this was my 4th time to the summit. My son's first. I enjoy looking at the massive mountain from the valley

One of my favorite trails from either trailhead. You can plan a day hike of a night hike and summit the peak just in time for the sunrise.

We attempted climbing it 7/8/17. Reviews are correct to this point - there is a lot of snow still right now. There are a few really steep/sketchy parts that you should NOT ATTEMPT without crampons, mountain axe, and mountaineering knowledge.

We started this early at 5:50AM on July 1, 2017. This was our first time on this trail and we were helped by a gentleman to locate the trail from parking lot. The trail is pretty impressive with water falls and greenery but it is still covered with snow after few miles. We decided to come back again on September mid-week checking the trail condition as we could not make to peak this time.

awesome beautiful trail, but still ice and snow to cross. couldn't make it past 4 miles without good shoes and a couple hiking poles, at least at night when it was frozen.

tried to make it to summit but got turned back a little after 3 miles due to snow. no sign of trail anywhere deep snow water flowing underneath making cool cavern things. trailhead sign that says it's impassable without crampons and ice axe and ability to use those things. try again mid july...

There's a lot more snow/ice up there than normal for this time of the year. Definitely not safe without an ice axe, crampons, and maybe even some ice climbing skills.

Amazing! Can't wait to go back! Glacier, bighorn sheep and gorgeous stratigraphy.

Not safe without an axe right now!!

Came up this trail today. You cross maybe six snow packs before the trail continues across a huge pack. I was wearing soft boots for the short crossings and didn't feel safe. Turned around at the main pack.

Beautiful trail up to this point, just being winter gear if you want to summit safely
