What an awesome hike. So many waterfalls and beautiful wild flowers along the Aspen Grove trail. I'd definitely recommend glissading from the south ridge to Emerald Lake- faster and more fun. A+, Timp. Great trail running, too.
Finally got the chance to mount this gorgeous lady since moving to Utah almost two years ago. Headed up via Aspen Grove. Stopped at Emerald Lake so my friend could do a naked backflip. We also saw a heard of mountain goats ambling about on the cliff face below South Timp, sending rocks cascading down. After summiting, we took the ridge toward the saddle between Timp + South Timp and glissaded back down to the lake, where upon the rest of us jumped in. Got off the mountain just in time to miss a storm that had rolled in!
found a camera 8am 6/29 about halfway between Aspen Grove & Emerald Lake. PM me to claim.
Hiked Timp from the Aspen Grove side last June. Great time, but still had to contend with some snow. It was easier going up due to the snow still being frozen from the night before, and a little cumbersome going down. Saw many mountain goats, and had a marmot kick a rock down on me as I approached the saddle. After a few choice words, I continued on and made the summit.
Ammon Hatch, Jason Larsen, Kevin Larsen, Crystal Roberts, Dallin Hunter, Gavin I-don't-know-his-last-name and I climbed Timpanogos via the Timpooneke Trail. Ammon and I did this approximately three-and-a-half days after we climbed Lone Peak. Words to the wise: If your knee hurts after doing Lone Peak, don't climb Timpanogos four days later. You'll feel really hardcore at the time, but also really crummy for months to come.
Started at 10 pm on Friday with several members of the Utah Climbing Club. Summited Saturday morning. Awesome time up the left side of the Hillary Step.
Started at the Timpooneke trailhead around 5:30am and made it to the summit under clear blue skies around 8:00. Stunning views complement this downright awesome hike and helped make for a memorable experience.
Started late afternoon at Timpanokee TH and backpacked to Timp basin Friday with rain coming down hard the entire time - but it kept other hikers off the trail. Woke up to a light dusting of snow the next morning (first of the year). Completed the climb up Timp and glisaded down the snowfield. Great over-nighter - though a little wet.
Climbed with the Wasatch Mountain Club and some friends in cold rain. Made it to the saddle before we turned around in pounding rain and bad visibility. Still managed to have a fun day!
Saturday Fly to Salt Lake City, drive to Timpooneke Campground
Sunday Timpooneke trail to Emerald Lake
Monday To the top, retrieve pack and down Aspen Grove trail
Tuesday back to LA
No water along the trail or in upper Timpanogos Basin. Rained on the way down. Great scenery. Wish I took more pictures!
2011 was my first time summitting. I've summitted 4 other times 3 times in 2012 and once (thus far in 2013). The 2013 summit was a memorable one as I backpacked and camp in the basin below the summit woke up early and arrived to the summit to watch the sunrise. I prefer to do this hike on a weekday later in the season when it's less crowded.
YES! I finally made it up after procrastinating for 2 years. I just had to force myself to make the drive. I ran up in 2:07 and stopped to sign the register, snap some pics, and ran back down. Really great trail and stunning views! Mt Timp is my 60th mtn/peak summit!
Timp's popularity is well-deserved (though irritating at times).
I've had days where, my group aside, there hasn't been another soul on the summit, and other days where it felt like a human highway/wildflower pickers' convention.
I'm hoping to pick some different lines next spring (Everest Ridge, maybe the Grunge, etc.)
While the Aspen Grove route takes the lion's share of water and flowers, I've experienced far more wildlife on the Timpooneke trail; coyotes, sage grouse, mule deer.
via Timpooneke. Amazing flowers in the basin.
Loved the Hike. Started around 7:00. Definatly fighting heat on the way back but totally worth it.

Timpanooke. Spring mountaineering in late July.
Also hiked waaaay back sometime in 2000.
Started around 11 am with Duc. The geological features of this mountain are amazing. The grand staircase makes for good hiking, beautiful areas to lounge in, and fantastic views. The mountain goats were a terrific sight.
We made it to the top in 3 hours and 40 minutes and back in 2 hours and 20 minutes. Unfortunately, Duc sprained his ankle in the last half-mile.
For some reason I had never climbed Timp. This year alone I had done Olympus, Big Baldy, Mahogany, Y Mountain, and Spanish Fork Peak, but I always considered Timp "too crowded" for the kind of hiking I like to do. However, the mountain truly lived up to its hype--it was spectacular!
Ten minutes in I saw a moose, and later in the hike I saw a red fox and around 20 mountain goats. The views are incredible, and the glissade down to the lake/pond was a highlight for sure. I'll definitely be going back.
This was a dry year and we still encountered heaps of snow up in the high country! We did it the loop. Started around one in the morning and headed on up to catch the sunrise on Timp. Had the summit and trail to ourselves! Simply one of the best hikes out there. We came down the Aspen Grove side and maybe saw a total of 8 people. You hear about the crowds, but mid week earlier in the year was the way to go!
6/12/2016 Started at Dry Canyon TH. Up and over Big Baldy and then Everest Ridge to the top. Awesome route. Descended into Timp Basin (great glissade) and out via the Timpooneke trail.
11/1/2015 From the Timpooneke trailhead along with Robert's Horn. Very cold and windy on the summit.
7/21/2013 Via the Timpooneke trail. I also climbed the South Summit and Bomber Peak.
Don't rembember the dates but I have climbed twice via Aspen Grove. Once in the summer of '95 and again sometime in '98.
