Excellent information! I really enjoy the additional detail that I get out of your site, that I can't find anywhere else. Kerry H.www.utahboatinginfo.com
Are there any problems with parking and starting the hike before 7 AM? We heard that the parking lot is part of the campground which is closed until 7? Cheri Dueber
Actually, the Timpooneke lot is always open, whereas the Aspen Grove is the trailhead that is connected to a campground. The only problem you will run into is as BYU and UVU start their fall semester, these trails get flooded with co-eds. When I hiked this last year, the only parking that we could find was up the road and around the corner from the main parking area which technically is illegal, but since everyone else was doing it, no one got tickets.Since this trail is open 24/7, many hikers choose to hike this over night in the summer and watch the sunrise at the summit.Let me know if you need any additional info!
Thank you! Your info is very much appreciated. I love this site!Cheri
Planning our ascent for mid-August. Thanks for the info!
Thaks for the great information! One correction though: the coordinates you gave for the trailhead actually lead to the Jenny Canyon Slot in the Snow Canyon area of south-west Utah.Somebody else back me up on this, but I think the coordinates for the Timpooneke trailhead should be approximately 40°25'52.46" N, 111°38'21.16" W
Thanks for the correction and the complements. The coordinates have now been fixed. Let us know how you enjoyed the hike!
How early in the year can you hike this trail? We don't want to be hiking through snow the whole way up.
Since this spring has had a lot of snowfall, it probably would be a couple more weeks of warm weather before the trail will be completely free of snow. Definitely by July.
Heading to the Timp hike on 13 August, weather permitting. Great information! Thanks for the pictures also. I can see Timp from my house and I see very very little of no snow now! Really looking forward to it!
Anybody climb timp this year yet? I want to go this weekend but I'm not sure if the snow is gone
I hiked it yesterday via timpooneke. Tons of snow. While I did do it with tennis shoes on, it was extremely difficult. I saw some guys with crampons and they had no problems.The snow is annoying during the first ascent, and really difficult towards the end of the second ascent as well as in the alpine bowl. No snow from the saddle to the peak.The only plus was you got to slide down in several places to speed up the descent.7.5 hours up 3.75 hours down.
