“Run up the Giant Staircase among beautiful wildflowers and mountain wildlife, towards Mt Timpanogos.”— Nicholas Shannon
The trail continues up the Giant Staircase, passing a number of small falls and open meadows. As the trail climbs higher, it crosses a number of rocky slopes, eventually entering a large open basin below the final ridge to Emerald Lake where it joins the Aspen Grove and Summit Trails. The trail provides numerous vistas to the north, including Silver lake Flat and the Lone Peak Wilderness. Much of the Timpooneke Trail is wooded and while it is longer than the Aspen Grove Trail, contains fewer steep sections.
There is also an excellent chance of spotting Rocky Mountain goats in the Emerald Lake area.
