The website indicated that there were no tickets available on Wednesday, July 23 2014, so we didn't think we could get in, but we went up anyway. What we found out is that all tickets are not available online, they save some for people who just show up. There were four of us, we arrived at 11 am and were... More

I went with a couple friends. It's a good hike up there. About 30 minutes. Great views. Once you get to the start of the cave it's a guided tour of cool stalagmites and stalactites among some cool caves. If you're in the area I recommend visiting this cave. Great drive to a great hike to a great cave. Good... More

My husband and I went to visit family in the Park City area in July, and are so glad we hiked to this unique national monument! We thoroughly enjoyed the hike and the cave tour. The whole event takes about 3-3.5 hours. We were advised to reserve tickets online ahead of time, which was easy and a smart thing to... More

I am not a hiker and have never been before my visit to the Timpanogos. The hiking trail to the cave was fully paved and we made it in 40 minutes or so which included stopping and taking multiple photos and enjoying the scenery. The tour was short and sweet but still interesting. I wouldn't do it again but I'd... More

Doing this climb the day after we flew from Boston probably wasn't the best idea, but we made it all the way up to the top and back. It is a long and steep walk, but it was well worth the time and energy. It took us about 2 hours to get to the top and with very achy legs... More

We enjoyed every bit of our time at Timpanogos -- the hike up the mountain, the formations in the cave, and our delightful guide, Ranger Mack. He warmly welcomed us travelers to the site, and within a short time we all felt like friends. We literally bonded during his tour. With every point of the flashlight, Mack showed off the... More

We went all the way to the top of the mountain and it took us more than an hour to finish 1.5 miles. Our tour cave tour scheduled at 10:45 am and we were told to hike up to the entrance by 12:15 pm. There are three caves and they are relatively small, but the ranger did a great job... More

We came to the Monument not really knowing what to expect and were absolutely blown away by the experience. The beauty that is at this park is unlike any other and the cave tour was so informative it was worth the 6700 foot hike. Let me first tell you that the cave tour was amazing but I fully believe that... More

This was a great cave tour, and a good hike as well, although it was definitely a hike! We are both in pretty good shape, but I definitely felt my "knee with issues" by the time we finished the cave and hiked back down. The cave itself was awesome.. Lots of neat formations, all types, and up close and personal!... More

We are in good shape and found this hike not to be as strenuous as claimed. We did it in 1 hour without drinking much water and it was a very hot day. The views are spectacular, but I did not find the cave to be very inspiring. I've been to better and more interesting ones. The tour presented by... More
