Strenuous Hike with Fantastic Views!
sep. 2021 • Alene
Fairly challenging hike to the top, but the views are well worth it... even if you don't make it to the caves themselves. While there is elevation and incline to give you a work out, the trail / path is a paved surface. The cave tours were running at limited intervals when I visited, so I missed out on that, but I'm glad I stopped here anyways. Well worth a stop if you're in the area.

Don't underestimate - it IS a hike, but so worth it.
sep. 2021
This is actually 3 cave systems connected together with fascinating differences. One of the better cave tours is terms of variability of landmarks. Well worth it.

The hike up is paved, but it is very strenuous. They give you 90 minutes from the bottom to the top (1.5 miles with a 5,000 foot rise). I did it in 60 at a regular pace, but be prepared for being out of breath. There are nice rest stops along the way, but be prepared for the final 1/4 of the hike, it is the steepest.

Enjoy it once you make it to the top, its a well earned reward.

Nice surrounding area as well, with a picnic area across the highway.

A fascinating and informative tour of Timpanogos Cave.
jul. 2021
A fascinating and informative tour of Timpanogos Cave. The 1.5-mile hike to the cave entrance climbs 1100 feet on a paved path. Factor this in if you're considering taking children under 5 on the tour. (I saw one mother with three kids under 5 fail to make her tour because the hike up to the cave was too strenuous for them.)
Our tour guide, Rus, was great.
Remember the inside of the cave is about 45-degrees F, and the cave tour is about an hour in length. There were a few people in shorts and a t-shirt that wished they had something warmer on while inside the cave.
By the time you hike up to the start of the tour, the tour itself, and the hike down, it will be over 3 hours.

Long long hike. Fun. Great weather. The cave was cool. 45 degrees. Coming down was easier than going up. Mask mandate on in a freezing cold place. Ugh. Girl guide was knowledgeable. Hike up was hard and we’re fit

Slightly strenuous & not ideal for people scared of heights but awesome views and it’s paved
jun. 2021 • Familie
NOT THE EXPERIENCE FOR SOMEONE SCARED OF HEIGHTS. This is also not for someone who cannot walk long distances or strenuously uphill. To see the cave you have to hike up the mountain and there are no rails most of the time. This is a paved path but some spots are narrow. BUT this trail does offer some AMAZING views. Just plan accordingly with water.

The Mount Timpanogos Cave National Monument is a cool system of caves that you can walk through. We knew ahead of time that the caves were closed and that we would not be able to enter them. However, we had assumed that we would still be able to hike up to the cave. Unfortunately, this is not the case. There is a gate preventing entry about one-third of the way up the hill to the cave area. So while you can still walk part of the way up to the cave, mostly you will not be able to visit the monument at all.

Note that the hike up to the cave is actually fairly steep and strenuous. Although the path is paved, you need to be in decent shape to do it.

There is a very nice looking visitor center at the base as well. However, that was also closed at the time of our visit.

Pretty and fun

We hiked this prior to the Covid-19 shutdown. It's a steep hike up but it's on a paved trail with nice views. Take plenty of water and go slow and easy both up and down. The trail has some beautiful views however the cave isn't that impressive. It seems like the cave doesn't have that many formations compared to the others we've been to.

Nice place to picnic...6/27/2020
jun. 2020
Looking for a picnic spot between Zion and Park City, we found this along the way. We had a babbling brook and the perfect temperature for eating our lunch. The cave was closed due to Covid-19 so we didn’t hike, but we then drove up over the winding alpine loop road to end up with a terrific sight with chair lifts moving! We had to ride to the top of Sundance! What a find.

Be ready for a steep hike to see awesome cave structures
aug. 2019
Coming from Florida, which is flat, I knew the hike was going to be challenging for my family and me, but I wanted us to have an experience in Utah that we could not get in Florida. We came in August so it was warm. Make sure you bring water to stay hydrated during your hike up the mountain. Also bring sunscreen if needed.
There is parking outside the main building and that is where you pick-up your tickets. We ordered online, which we highly recommend.
We arrived an hour before our tour time, but keep in mind it takes almost an hour to get to the entrance to the cave, which is at an elevation of 6730 feet.
As we hiked up the views were spectacular so we took pictures along the way. There are also informative signs that explain the rock structure as well as animals and plants that you might see or hear along the trail.
Inside the cave the temperature is a lot cooler than outside so I recommend bringing a light jacket at least.
You are not allowed huge backpacks. A standard bookbag size is okay. Check the website to be sure.
Our tour guide was Michael who is a park ranger and was very informative during our tour explaining how certain cave formations are formed. He communicated with our group very well and even had introduce ourselves to find out where we were from.
The tour of the cave itself takes about 45 minutes or so and then you have the hike back down, which is easier.
Overall this is a great activity to do while in Utah.

It's way dark when the lights go out
apr. 2019
The trail is steep (both ways), but manageable. The caves are cool, both in temperature and formations. The rangers are knowledgeable and good guides. There are several caves liked together, and the tour includes a few. The formations are incredible, and postcards are available to purchase to memorialize your visit. When they turn the lights out it is very dark, and gives you the flavor of what it would be like if you were exploring and your light source failed. Children who can hike would enjoy the experience.
