Mount Timpanogos Trails, Sundance

4.8
#7 of 12 in Trails in Wasatch Range
Mount Timpanogos, sometimes informally referred to as Timp, is the second highest mountain in Utah's Wasatch Range. Timpanogos rises to an elevation of 11752ft above sea level in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. With 5,270 feet of topographic prominence, Timpanogos is the 47th-most prominent mountain in the contiguous United States.The mountain towers about 7,000 feet over Utah Valley, including the cities of Lehi, Provo, Orem, Pleasant Grove, American Fork, Lindon and others. The exposed portion of the mountain is made up entirely of limestone and dolomite from the Pennsylvanian period, and is about 300 million years old. Heavy winter snowfall is characteristic of this portion of the Wasatch Range, and avalanche activity is common in winter and spring. The mountain is also home to Timpanogos Cave National Monument, a series of decorated caves in the north end of the mountain that have guided ranger tours open daily to the public during the warmer months.The word Timpanogos comes from the Timpanogots tribe who lived in the surrounding valleys from AD 1400. The name translates as "rock" (tumpi-), and "water mouth" or "canyon" (panogos).

  • Great hike to the top of Mount Timpanogos. I made this hike end of October and it took me about 4 hours to get to the top and 3 hours to get back down. I started my hike at the parking near Timpooneke...  more »
  • We visited during fall, and the colors were breathtaking. We enjoyed hiking several trails. We also drove up to the summit, and the view was amazing. Highly recommend this during the fall, but we hope...  more »
  • Very scenic hike. 14 to 15 miles but it is very enjoyable. From Saddle to the peak will be cold and windy, carry warm cloths. Lots of people on weekends, parking at Timpooneke TH will be an issue.  more »

  • Timpanogos is such a beautiful, iconic site for Utah County. I have hiked this several times in my youth and adult life. The hike itself is fairly easy but long. And the views at the summit are amazing.
  • Such a beautiful place with gorgeous scenery. The hike to the top is hard but it is so worth it! I loved the view and I loved being able to see much of the valley and Utah Lake! It is amazing and will take your breath away! Take plenty of water when you hike this hike. I would recommend 4-6 bottles of water.
  • Such an amazing hike! Be warned, it is a long hike and it would probably be difficult for less experienced hikers. The view from the top is breathtaking. We've hiked it 3 times and it's been worth it. Bring plenty of water and prepare for cold. (We hiked it in October)
  • The hardest yet most rewarding hike I have ever done. It took my boyfriend and I 3 tries to make it to the top due to weather conditions. Bring plenty of water and snacks on the way up. Although the biggest lie you'll ever hear the hehe friendly passer byers say is, "Just 2 more miles!"
  • Hiking Mount Timpanogos is an incredible feeling. You can break it up into a couple days, but most people do it in one. Plenty of camping along the way. This trail is dog friendly 🐶
