Took my two oldest kids (6 & 8) on a short backpacking trip to summit their first mountain. Love Timpanogos!

There was bad weather for weeks in WA so Heather and I drove through OR, CA, NV, UT, and ID. We climbed 37 peaks in 19 days and on the 14th day of the trip we did Timpanogos via the Timpooneke trail. This was hands down the best hike/peak of the trip and now stands as one of my all time favorite peaks. It was also my 48th world ultra prominence peak. I'd like to return someday and do a harder route. I found petrified seashells on the way down. trip report

Still one of the best hikes! We hiked on Thursday to avoid the crowds. Weather was bright and clear all day. Not too hot on the mountain at all.

The trail was very nearly clear; a few small spots of snow where we had to use care on the climb up to the saddle. There were some places where little streams had taken over the trail for some distance rather than their usual channels. This was worse in the afternoon as run-off increased. Not a hazard, but plan on a little mud and the increased possibility of wet boots (already a factor with all the stream crossings).

The trail from saddle to summit seems a lot less defined than when I did it last, but that was many years ago and I'm going from memory. Still, there's a lot of exposure and some scrambling. There are some cairns to help mark the route, but it's not always easy to see them on the way up. There's a good chance you'll be coming down and kind of smack your head for coming up the hard way.

It was beautiful up there. Columbine, alpine bluebells, mountain roses, all in bloom. The views were very good; the air was clear enough to see Mt. Nebo, Deseret Peak, the entire Alpine Ridge, and the western Uintas. I believe the Tintic and Sheeprock ranges were visible as well off in the blue distance.

We live in Orem, so every morning we look up at Timp from my front window. It's a beautiful peak, and the way it changes while the sun moves and the seasons change is amazing. I wanted my kids to be able to look out at this gigantic mountain every day and say "I took one hard day, kept on walking, and stood on top of that." Icing on the cake, my wife, my dad, and my best friend with two of his daughters came too. This was a great day and an amazing memory.

Went up the Timpooneke Trail with my father and 3 others early in the morning. The ascent was great, beautiful trail with amazing scenery, and the final section from the saddle to the summit was particularly fun, just steep enough to keep things interesting without feeling sketchy. What a view from the summit! Signed the register and the shack's wall, took note of the USGS benchmark, then finally went down. Only issue with this mountain was how the descent just seemed to drag on forever. Highly recommended peak!

Did this hike when I was at Snow College.
Shuttle route: up Timpanooke, then glissaded down the snowfield and hiked down Aspen Grove.

Got turned around due to too much snow still on the ground. I was not prepared or experienced enough to attempt the final ascent to the summit. Will try again next year, later in the season!

You weren't kidding when you recommended getting there early. Arrived at 6:00 to find the parking lot full. Got a spot on the road before they were quickly gone. Lots of people there but it was well worth it.Beautiful day.

Climbed with my wife and son. First time for both of them, although I had climbed it twice in the mid/late 90's. Timp is awsome! Waterfalls, mountain goats, wildflowers, snow sliding, you get it all! Every time we've ascended Timpooneke and descended to Aspen Grove.

What a beautiful hike from the Timpooneke Trailhead. I followed the advice on many forums and avoided the weekend. Found a nice mid-70s day on Wednesday in early September. Got to the trailhead around 8am (not too early) and made it up and down in a shade under 7 hours including time at the summit and time for lunch. It was chilly and breezy at the top but perfect hiking weather overall. Some of the best scenery around!

Took the Timpooneke Trail and parking was a nightmare. If possible never climb this mountain on a weekend; trail was crowded. Views were still amazing.

Made the long hike via Timpooneke Trailhead. Was definitely worth the hike up to see Timp Basin and the views from the summit.

Climbed it as part of the Timpanogos Ridge Traverse. Beautiful views from the top, well worth the effort, I was going to hit South Timpanogos and The Shoulder but unfortunately I had commitments I had to get to definitely next time, but at least the glissading down the glacier was fun.

Sneaked Timp in before the cold weather hit. UP #6 in Utah for me. Two left. It was very crowded, even in the late season and as a result I've had better times on other peaks.
