Description

The Billboard and The Vortex are accessed using this path. The trail is steep, loose, and not an altogether-pleasant experience.

The trail begins more-or-less straight up the slope on the north side of the canyon and quickly begins angling to the east.

Getting There

Drive up canyon from the Timpanogos Cave National Monument visitors center until you reach the entrance to the Sawmill Picnic Area on the right. A short distance (approximately .2 miles) past the picnic area entrance is a small pullout on the right.

Park here and cross the road. Walk one hundred feet or so up canyon until you spot the wall at the base of a loose dirt/scree field. At the top of the trail, 200 feet below the cliff, please resist the urge to go straight up the dirt gully to the base of the cliff. There is now a subtle trail out right that takes you to the ridge and back towards the base of the cliff with a switchback. It's a much more solid trail and will save you significant headache and energy.
