Mount Timpanogos Wilderness

Located in the Uinta National Forest in Utah.

Established wilderness in 1984 by the Utah Wilderness Act, Mount Timpanogos Wilderness covers 10,750 acres and contains 17 miles of maintained trails. Two trailheads, Timpooneke and Aspen Grove, access the 11,753-foot summit from either American Fork Canyon or Provo Canyon. Both trails are extremely scenic, offering the hiker views of alpine meadows, lakes, and waterfalls.

The hiking season extends from mid-June through September. Large amounts of snow make the trail very dangerous in the early summer months, so great caution should be used when hiking at these times.

The Wilderness receives very heavy use due to its proximity to both Provo and Salt Lake City. There is a permanent restriction on campfires as well as a maximum group size of 15 people.
