Overview

Getting There

From I-15, take the Orem/Lindon 1600 North exit and drive 4 miles until 1600 North curls on to 800 East. Simply drive up Cascade Drive from the intersection of 1600 North and 800 East in Orem.

Route Description

Via the Great Western Trail (Easiest):
From the trailhead, proceed on the Bonneville Shoreline trail East until just before the top of the "Stairway". You will reach a candy cane shaped pipe 100 meters from the top with a trail to the left, take the trail and proceed approx 1.5 miles to "the rockpile" where the Great Western Trail joins in. Take the GW trail towards Timp and follow up the switchbacks a few miles until you top out. When you reach the Little Baldy-Timp saddle, break off the trail and bushwack up to the summit.
