This trail starts out with a smooth, wide dirt road-like section, but within about a half mile the trail turns into singletrack as it nears Grove Creek. It then hits a switchback that brings the trail up above the creek for about a mile.
The section after the switchback is a cool section of the trail, where you can see a couple of neat waterfalls and a section of the trail appears to have been carved out of a cliff band. After about a mile of being up above the creek, the trail eventually meets up with the creek and crosses over it via a small foot bridge.
After crossing the foot bridge, the trail switches back a couple more times and pretty soon starts to level out as it ascends into the meadow below Mount Timpanogos. The trail passes by a sign for Indian
Campground and Grove Creek Spring
, and there is a spring nearby (right next to the trail) that can be used if you need a water refill.
After the spring, the trail continues past a few forks in the trail, including a fork that goes to the south on the Grove Creek - GWT Connector
, another that goes north towards Mahogany Mountain, and a fork (where you can go either north or south) with the Great Western Trail
. Not long after the fork with the Great Western Trail
, the trail ends at the Timpooneke Road.
Flora & Fauna
Plenty of local wildflowers and wildlife to be seen on this trail, at the right times of year.
