great hike that's super accessible, plenty of beautiful scenery and plenty to look at, just make sure to pack cold weather gear because it gets frigid and windy on that peak

Best hike in Utah if you ask me. Most amazing views. Incredible terrain. Lots of exposure. Takes all day or make it a multi-day trip. If you're scared of heights this one isn't for you.

I went there July 12, 2013. Starting at 5:30 am. So far hiking to Mt. Timp was one of my greatest hikes ever. The hike is long but it is worthy of any sacrifice because the place has a great scenery. The waterfalls, lake, flowers, animals and the creek's water noise was amazing. I loved sitting on the rocks and listening the water moving under the rocks, so relaxing! Here is a video I made: hope you guys enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Y9NyagUk8s

Of the two trail options to reach Mount Timpanogos this is the short and steeper of them. Very busy trailhead, although the waterfalls are nice at the beginning. I personally prefer the Timpooneke Trail.

The waterfalls at the beginning if this trail are lovely, but timponokee is a much nicer trail in the long run. Easier grade, more shade, and better scenery.

One of my favorite hikes! Be aware: this is a very crowded trail especially when Timpooneke is closed. I saw 200 hikers easily. You have to be a social hiker to enjoy this one. The ascent is a long one, and very exposed once you pass the cirque. Emerald Lake is a good lunch spot, and you can also refill on water. Take a moment and enjoy talking with folks from all over the country! There are also some mountain goats near the lake. Be careful crossing the boulder field near the saddle and follow the cairns for the easiest route. Best view of the valley by far. Also, get an early start or you won't find parking!
