When I was 6 I was trampled my a moose on this trail in August so keep your eyes peeled! ☺️ I have gotten over my fear of this hike and hiked it 2-3 times a week last summer! Gorgeous always and emerald lake is the best part of it! Bring a lunch and eat there.

It is a beautiful hike to the first falls, but it gets even more gorgeous going up to the second. We ran out of water (because I didn't plan well) so we had to turn back at the second one. Otherwise we would have kept going! I carried my son up in a hiking backpack the whole way. We will definitely be going again!!!

This was a very dedicated hike, but it has one of the best views I have ever seen in my life. That being said, I have no desire to go back to the Summit of Mount Timp. It was very much a one and done kind of thing and I am glad that I can say that I have been there and done that. However, I am in love with Emerald Lake and think that is the best part of the hike, hands down. In my book, it would easily get five stars. Going on the Aspen Grove route is a little steeper, but it does goes by quite a bit quicker than the Timpooneke trail.

Went snowshoeing out to Timpanogos Falls today (early March). Perfect snow and conditions. Get out there and do it!

This was one of my top 5 favorite hikes. Ever. From start to finish, this hike had something that left you in awe. There are countless waterfalls, herds of mountain goats, a beautiful mountain lake, towering rock faces, and fields of wildflowers. I will be doing this hike again, because it's too good to only do once.

Great work out. Takes several hours. Too about 4.5 to the top, with a few breaks, and just 3 hrs down. Be prepared for it to be cool at the top, expecially if hiking later in the year.

Great hike with amazing views. Gonna go ahead and say it's a bit more than 13 miles. My phone tracker said 17 round trip. I am not saying that it is exact but it is definitely longer than 13 miles.

Great hike. I completed with my 11 yr old daughter. This hike is long, but not bad until you get to the rocky area right before the saddle. I was not a fan at all of this section especially hiking down. Next time I will slide down the glacier coming down to avoid. Great views throughout, highly suggest!
