Timpooneke  Sucess!

Less than two months out of ACL surgery on my left knee. Took longer than I expected, but no major problems. About 4am we came around a bend in the trail and saw a bull moose only like 10m away! We stopped and he slowly disappeared into the bushes. Also saw a few mountain goats near the summit. Lots of flowers and very green. Beautiful mountain.

Three buddies  Sucess!

The most beautiful cliche in the Wasatch Range. Everyone has to do it once in their living experience in Utah Valley. It truly is majestic. I don't like hiking crowded places, and would rather share a hike and mountain with a few close friends. But my two buddies and I shared a unique September day, where we didn't see a single other hiker, the entire 12 hours we spent on Timpanogos. It felt as if we were discovering this big beauty for the first time. Incredible hike I will never forget.

Go during the week!  Sucess!

Aspen Grove Trail mid day on Monday - about 15 cars in the lot with very little traffic on the way up. Spent the night by the hut and climbed up the next morning. Smoke from St. George fires made Monday a terrible day for any views but it cleared off nicely for Tuesday. Encountered about 60 - 70 goats - WOW!!

Crowded!  Sucess!

If you want to combine a great hike with a unique cultural experience, go hike Timp on a beautiful Saturday in August. The Forest Service folks told us that there were at least 400 people just on the Timpooneke trail. If I had a dollar for each piece of BYU Cougar gear I saw people wearing on the trail, I'd be filthy rich. Despite the crowds, the mountain is simply majestic, and the crowds didn't seem to scare away several bull moose and an entire herd of mountain goats. We went up Timpooneke trail to the summit, then down the snowfield, past Emerald Lake, and back to Timpooneke. Great hike.

Aspen Grove TH  Sucess!

I echo other people's comments about the beauty of this trail. Three waterfalls, one of which you can walk under...nice cooloff on the way down. Saw mountain goats high up above Emerald Lake in what looked like 5th class territory. One particular goat was comtemplating a move to another ledge above him. Amazing! Still enough snow if you are interested in the glissade, although I didn't go down that way.

Aspen Grove Trail  Sucess!

First time on the Aspen Grove trail, what a beautiful hike. We saw about 35 mountain goats in the meadows north of Emerald Lake, followed by a walk across the soft, but supporting, snow pack to the saddle. We glissaded down the snow field above the lake before heading back to the car.

Nice Outing  Sucess!

Nice hike up the Aspen Grove trail. Busy day on the mountain, despite all of the snow. Temperatures were nice and cool...because it was raining!

Timp and all it's sub peaks  Sucess!

Great Mountain, attempted it 11 years ago but ended up making out with my (now wife) in the meadows below. Ran out of time and had to hurry down to make our flight home. Returned 10 years later to get it. Another trip grabbed the south peak, Roberts Horn and the East peak.

Spectacular Skiing in Spring- East Ridge  Sucess!

Our route didn't take us to the true summit. Started at Aspen Grove 6890 ft @ 5am) once we attained the saddle (11,300 ft) we traversed south to the SE summit (11,600 ft @11am, total gain 4710 ft) and skied the East Ridge, an epic ski run, steep the whole way, navigating cliff bands and a bushwhack to the Stewart Falls trail to complete the trip back to Aspen Grove lot. Start time 5am, end time nearly 9 hrs later at 1:50pm.

Refreshing in Summer  Sucess!

Great summer hike, very refreshing to be up and out of the heat. Great glissade down the glacier above Emerald Lake, that same day a hiker broke his leg glissading down.

Timpanooke

The Timpanooke trail is super easy...go for a walk, summit, and get back home with a great feeling of satisfaction b/c you spent all day out side but didn't have to work very hard to get great views and a nice summit experience.

Favorite  Sucess!

Probably my favorite peak, I try to climb it at least once a year but I just moved back to Utah so I haven't in a few years. Would love to try an alpine style winter climb someday.
