“A popular destination is a beautiful place to hike as many mountain wildflowers burst in full bloom.”— Nicholas Shannon
Mount Timpanogos offers views year round of spectacularly rugged terrain with outstanding glacial cirques, (the round, circular shaped valleys below the peaks) and moraines (masses of rocks, gravel, and sand deposited by glaciers).
Trail users should be aware of the high level of use that this trail receives, and should expect to see each type of user group on any given day. This is one of the most used trails on the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache NF and as such Saturdays and holidays can be prohibitively busy. Users are encouraged to use this trail Sunday through Friday, avoiding Saturdays and Holidays. As this hike does enter the Mount Timpanogos Wilderness area, keep group sizes fewer than 15 people.
There is also an excellent chance of spotting Rocky Mountain goats in the Emerald Lake area.
