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.

go out of your way to do this hike when it's not busy. the trail itself is incredible (probably one of the best in Utah valley) but there are so many inconsiderate punks that do graffiti, blare their music on the hike, relieve themselves near the trail, the list goes on.

Defiantly wasn't prepared for such a beautiful but long steep rocky hike. Definitely recommend for those who are up for a beautiful challenge.

Great hike with beautiful and diverse scenery the whole way up. I haven't been active in years and this took my group about 9 hours (roughly 6 up, 3 down). Even if you're active, it'd be good to plan that amount of time so you can stop to soak up the majesty of this area.

A few words on planning - we went in early October and encountered snow in the rocky area (even though the western side was clear) - this resulted in a few slips resulting in minor cuts/bruises. We also didn't plan our time well which resulted in half of our decent being without lights during a new moon - which resulting in a few more tumbles. I've heard of others having a rough time on this hike as well - in particular unprepared for snow or nightfall during the decent. While I can hardly complain for my own failure to plan, you'd be wise to take precautions!
