You can access Mt. Timpanogos easily from Highway I-15, using the 272 exit and driving east along highway 52 ( 800 North in Orem) to the junction with highway 189, the Provo Canyon road. Go East on 189 for 7 miles to the Sundance Ski resort turnoff (watch for it just after you go through a tunnel) and turn left on highway 92 for 6 miles, going past the Sundance ski area and the Aspen Grove recreation area. Proceed until you come to a fee booth (pay the fee ) and look for parking just beyond in a lot at the left. If full, look for additional parking just up the road. From the parking lot, you'll find the most popular trail, the Aspen Grove trail that heads on up the mountain

The other way to access Mt. Timp from I-15 is to take the 284 exit and go east on highway 92. Go 8 miles until you enter the American Fork Canyon and you'll be confronted by a fee booth. Continue on another 8.2 miles (passing the Timpanogos Cave national monument area) until you come to the Timpooneke Campground on the right side of the road. The trailhead to the Timpooneke route is just beyond the campground area.

BTW, the nearest major airport is Salt Lake City international, located about 45 miles north.

Great trail for horseback riding with lots of wildlife to view from the trail. The trails are very well maintained and condusive to horsemen. I even know a man who took his horse to the shack... but I would not recommend it!!!

Emerald Lake is filled by a glacier which melts directly into it during the warmest months of the year so it is EXTREMELY cold! Only swim if you are prepared to freeze!

There are meadows all along the trail to camp in and almost all summer long there are tons of flowers and wildlife to keep you in awe.
