Pleasant Grove Ranger District - (801) 785-3563 Silver Lake Dam Rehabilitation 2015Campground/Picnic Areas/Roads/Trails Update Updated June 15, 2015 Trails Update for July 6, 2015Timpooneke and Aspen Grove Both trails are now free of snow except for a small section between Emerald Lake and the Saddle. Water in the upper basins is mostly dry except for Emerald Lake itself. Filters should be used. The flowers appear to be close to peak bloom which should continue for the next couple of weeks. The bloom does not appear to be as vibrant as years past - likely due to the dry conditions. Generally, conditions will not change much for now. I will be gone the next 2 weeks so there will be no updates until I return. Remember it can be very cool and windy toward the top. Hikers should be prepared.
