Mount Timpanogos Trail (10/03/2006) This is the start of the main Mount Timpanogos Trail on the Sundance side of the Alpine Loop.
The Timpooneke Trail is one of the two major routes up Mount Timpanogos. This is a strenuous that fills up the day. You access the trailhead from the American Fork side of the Alpine Loop (Highway 92). The trail is 9.1 miles. It starts at 6850 feet and climbs to the summit 11753 feet.
This is a spectacular hike. Hikers need to plan a full day for the trip. On this day, I was looking to take photos of the fall colors on the Alpine Loop and only did a short section of the Great Western Trail and the lower section of the Timpooneeke trail.
