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.

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...

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

Beautiful scenic route. took us about 10 hours round trip at normal hiking speed. Leave early to avoid heavy sunlight. Prepare enough water and some snacks.

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.
