The Timpanogos massif dominates the skyline of Utah County. At 11,749 feet, this majestic peak is the second highest in the Wasatch (just below Mount Nebo to the south, at 11,928 feet). But looking at the steep, barren, western slope of Mount Timpanogos, it’s hard to imagine the spectacular beauty to be found on the expansive, wooded eastern slopes, where trails lead past glistening lakes, flowered meadows, cascading waterfalls, and on to the summit.

Started at 6:00 am from the Timpooneke Trailhead. No place to park, so had to park down the road a ways. Got a 35.00 parking ticket. Hike was fantastic, it took us about 8:30 hrs round trip. Had to fill up with filtered water on the way down. used 120 ozs water on this trip, temps were in the 70's-low 80's. I am really excited to do this hike again. There were a bunch of people on the trail, that would be my only complaint, and the reason why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars.
