#1 - Mount Timpanogos Trail from Aspen Grove
Mount Timpanogos Wilderness

Length: 15.6 mi • Est. 9 h 18 m
There are two trails to the summit of Mount Timpanogos. This describes the Aspen Grove trail, while the other trail is the Timpooneke Trail. Both trails lie almost 100% within the Wilderness boundary, where no fires are allowed. The Aspen Grove trail initially contains many switchbacks featuring many waterfalls and small water crossings, and amazing views. The trail reaches the Hidden Lakes basin followed by 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. A good source of trail conditions can be either the Pleasant Grove Ranger District, and also TERT (Timpanogos Emergency Response Team) which frequently post conditions on their Facebook page.Show more

Note: The term squaw is considered universally offensive by Indigenous groups in America due to its use for hundreds of years in a derogatory context. Indigenous activists have continued to work both locally and in more general educational efforts, to rename the locations across North America that contain the slur, as well as to eliminate the slur from the lexicon in general.

Length: 1.4 mi • Est. 38 m
Great, quick paved trail for the whole family. The trail is easy for children and can be done by most. The first part of the trail is flat and paved. The last portion up to the falls is more difficult with wet and loose rocks. Near the trailhead there is a fish pond where children can feed the fish. This is located on the Provo River Trail so watch out for bikers. Bridal Veil Falls is a 607-foot, double cataract waterfall. There used to be a tram located near the trailhead that took people up to a restaurant located on the cliffs above the falls. Avalanches have destroyed the tram and it has since been out of operation. In 2008 a fire burned down most of the restaurant and many surrounding trees. Accessibility: This trail is paved, smooth, typically at least four feet wide, and mostly flat except for the last section where many people climb on the rocks by the waterfall. The grade is 5% or less for the first 0.5 miles but there are steep sections with a grade above 10% past that. The trail may be slippery or muddy by the Falls. There is a closer parking lot and viewpoint if you wish to bypass the trail. It has been marked on the map with a waypoint. Simply cross the bridge from that parking lot to view the Falls.Show more

Lost Creek Falls is an out and back trail located in Provo Canyon. The trailhead is just off of Highway 189 and it is a easy-moderate hike to the waterfall. This trail is not very well known as it is overshadowed by Bridal Veil Falls. Avoid in winter and early spring as avalanches are frequent. Some hikers are confused about the location of the actual falls and turn around too soon. When you get to the top of the ATV trail where it crosses the creek and you have to start going up the streambank, look up the canyon. You'll see a small cliff face cutting across the canyon, with a small waterfall on the right side. The main falls is hidden on the left side of this cliff. The falls are actually visible from the Bridal Veil Falls viewpoint parking lot, so you know how far it will be.Show more
