Traversing the western face of Mount Timpanagos in the Wasatch range, Timpooneke Toad is a roughly 10-mile gravel out and back that offers unmatched alpine views of the Salt Lake Valley below. The road has no technical challenges, and any AWD vehicle can access most of what this trail has to offer. Beginners should know this two-way trail can be narrow, a little rocky, and includes portions that parallel very steep cliffs.

Campers can also enjoy this beautiful stretch. The road begins at a National Forest campground and offers a dozen or so dispersed sites along the route. Sites have spectacular views of either surrounding mountains and/or the cityscape below or maybe tucked into deep forests. This trail should be at or near the top of anyone's list looking for an alpine getaway just minutes from I-15 in and around Salt Lake City.
