Mountain Division hikers conduct a bi-annual climb to to the summit of Mt Timpanogas, the second highest peak in Utah.
The 15 mile round trip journey follows the Timpooneke trail through wilderness area, ascending 4500 feet to a summit elevation of 11752 ft. Notable features include Emerald Lake, rocky slopes, waterfalls, spectacular wildflower fields, and a high-elevation glacier. The high-altitude climb is great conditioning for TZMD members.
Catch your breath!
A shack in the center of the summit ridge marks the objective, and features a view of of the entire valley below. Mountain Division members descend back along the rugged peak trail, or slide 1300 feet down the glacier to Emerald lake.
