Trail shared by Nicholas Shannon

A steep ridgeline trail to the summit of Mount Timpanogos, this run offers incredible views.

Snow covers the trail until mid-summer causing extremely hazardous snow conditions in spring and early summer. Sliding down the snowfield above Emerald Lake is dangerous and not recommended.

Description

The Timpanogos summit trail connects to both the Timpooneke Trail #053 and the Mount Timpanogos Trail #052 and climbs to the summit of Mount Timpanogos. Be aware of uneven terrain, steep cliffs, and exposed cliff bands along the trail.

The Summit Trail proceeds across a large rocky slope at an easy grade but then becomes steeper on the many switchbacks up to the summit house where spectacular views can be seen in every direction.

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 on weekdays and Sundays if possible.
