Overview

This is a difficult one way trail in Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. It is one of two routes to the summit. The other is via the Aspen Grove Trail. Both trails are the same distance (7 miles one way), but the Timpooneke Trail has 500’ less climb.

    Beautiful hike. We started at about 07:30, reached the summit around 13:00, and back to the car at 17:00. We took lots of pictures — the fall colors for the first four miles were stunning!! Not much shade after that. Getting to the saddle was rewarding. The path to the summit was steep and intimidating. The summit is only about 8 feet wide or so. A treacherous 1,000 foot cliff on the east side overlooks emerald lake. I was hit with altitude sickness before hitting the saddle on the way down. So our journey to the car was pretty difficult. Our dogs did great! We hike with them a few times a year (golden retrievers) and they didn’t face any issues.

    Hike measured 13.86. Left at 7am and summitted at noon. Shade early then sun about half way up. Water streams early then dry also about half way up. Took 4L of water and was plenty. Last part is quite steep and must walk carefully. Trail is easy to locate throughout. Saw 20 plus mountain goats. Hard to imagine a prettier close to Valley hike as this.
