Lovely trail to see the fall colors, and the hike is easy/fairly flat with good tree cover and a stream and is dog friendly and wasn’t crowded at all.

Not a kid friendly trail! this was tough, took me a second to find it and then it was exactly a nice hiking trail. got to the top and wasnt that impressed. nice to waste time but the trip down was rough. the rocks were loose and even my dog had issues.

Beautiful in the fall.

Late Fall weather has the colors on the mountain popping! The weather and temperature was as perfect as it could be. Cooler in the morning, but warming quickly. Dark clouds loomed over the mountain most of the day, but we received no rain or snow.
From Aspen Grove it took us 4 hours and 15 minutes to summit. Winds on top were calmer than usual, only blowing small rocks.
Our 1 year old mix breed pup loves the hike, and hasn’t had any problems with his feet on the rough terrain.
The trail had lots of good people on it today.

Fun hike - gorgeous fall colors! Took us 2 hours up and 1.25 hours back down. Very cool views of rock canyon at the top - surprisingly, not very cold.

Beautiful hike, good work out! We lost the trail for a bit coming down into slide canyon, but found it again after a bit of bushwhacking. The weather was perfect and the leaves were beautiful!

Great “hike”...love it though. Great break from the everyday Provo landscape.

Beautiful hike in the fall leaves. Is it steep, but well worth it for the color

This time of year it’s perfect up there. This is just one of many local trails that’s great for an hour or two on a fall afternoon. The streams wind all over the valley and cross cut each other so every now and then you’ll cross over another little bridge. Also there’s dozens of places to hang a hammock or camp for the night, not sure if that’s permitted here though. I’ll update.

beautiful this time of year! have to see!!

Was fun to hike as a kid. We would do it at night so it was not as hot. The morning was very cold until the sun came up. At which time we had hiked to the silver shed on top. What a beautiful view of Utah valley. I will never for get coming down the glacier and enjoying the ride to Emerald lake. Was a lot of fun with my brother and friends.

amazing hike. it was 17 miles though... def not 13.9. beautiful, great weather, great trail. loved it!

I love this hike. It gets super steep at parts. It can be pretty hot in the summer so I like doing it during the fall. The colors on this trail in the fall are out of this world!

So hard but the views were worth it!

A great challenge with a great reward. Hiking this in the fall is a must. 7.5 miles round trip in about 2.5 hours alone. Views of Buffalo Peak, Timpanogos, Rock Canyon and Utah Valley. Make sure you are in shape for this one.

Great hike with an incredible view at the end. Steep and rocky but definitely worth it for the end! Great way to get some killer calves.

This wasn’t a bad hike. It’s definitely not kid friendly so I wouldn’t take your little ones. If you don’t read the description make sure to follow your map. It is easy to get confused. I enjoyed it but won’t do it again..

Surprised by this hike. Fantastic views at the top — the final 1/2 mile is where it all comes together so stick it out to the end. Not much water in Sept but the maples are turning bright red at the top. Shaded most of the day most of the way. Hung a hammock at the top and read for a few hours, and had it all to myself.

Beautiful!

We went up last Saturday. We hiked the first hour or two with headlamps because we started in the dark. Plenty of parking when we got there and a steady climb with breathtaking views all the way up. Managed to find some mountain goats. The only two complaints I have are the amount of people and that you have to hike just short of a mile across a boulder field-it hurts your feet! Will be trying the Timpanogee trail next time.

Fun hike! The trail gets a little difficult to follow descending into slide canyon, so make sure you have the map downloaded. Coming down the face of y mountain can be tough on the knees and pretty hot. About 70 oz of water was perfect for me and it took about three hours. Watch out for moose!

Best Utah county trail. A must.

Great hike! The last bit before the top is steep. Bring water because there isn’t any when you start getting higher. Great views down rock canyon from the saddle. I went over and down through rock canyon. The trail gets a bit confusing as you come down through the camp sights, but follow the signs for 060 and you should be alright.

Alltrails loged 14.6 miles and over 44,000 steps on the loop going up from Aspen Grove and back down Timponeke. I only saw one mountain goat butt, no flowers, a lot of dust, and too many people at the top, but it was an amazing day! Now to nurse my sore feet and legs!

A very pretty trail with gorgeous views. We left in the morning and were in the shade most of the way up. The last couple miles are incredibly steep. We passed a gang of dirt bikers coming down so the dirt was especially loose. Wear good shoes and bring plenty of water.
