Ascent Trip Report

This was my second ascending Mt. Timpanogos, but my first from the Aspen Grove trailhead. Previously I had used the Timpooneke trailhead. The trail from Aspen Grove had beautiful scenery and a waterfall that the trail goes behind. That said I preferred the trail from Timpooneke because
- the trail from Timpooneke was much easier to follow - the trail from Aspen Grove was not well maintained, and large groups had cut switchbacks and developed alternate trails, making it difficult to stay on the real trail
- the trail from Timpooneke was much more gentle in slope - the trail from Aspen Grove had sections that were almost flat and others that were brutal
- the trail from Timpooneke was much less crowded - the trail from Aspen Grove was the most crowded trail I can recall
- the trail from Timpooneke was more sheltered from the sun
