Purchase your tickets a week or so before your trip. Plan an early morning hike as it does get hot during the summer months. Pack water and some granola bars and don't forget your camera, even though you wont be able to take many photos inside the cave, the views from the hike are beautiful. Take a sweater along as...

This is a great place - once you get there!! The hike up to the entrance would be challenging for people unused to a steep hike and I wouldn't recommend you try to take younger children. That said, if you can take the hike up then the experience in the caves is well worth it :)

This is kind of a long hike up to the cave but well worth the walk once you get to go in and see all the different things that are happening behind the rock. Very Interesting facts

When you visit the Wasatch Front, you must see the Timp Cave. The short hike is strenuous but simple on a paved trail. This is my favorite tite/mite formation cave. Have seen some more talked about, but to me they do not compare.

Initial hike to the cave is via a steep trail on a narrow but paved path. Take water with you for the hike, and a jacket to wear inside the cave. Inside the cave is definitely chilly. Leave about 1 hour to hike up the trail. And about an hour to tour the cave. I would not plan on pushing... More

Cave is cool the hike is easy, but long and steep enough to feel like a good workout! Going in the fall is great weather!

Tinpanogos is actually three interconnected caves discovered at different times. The temperature is always hovering around 45-50 in the cave so dress accordingly. You should schedule in advance a tour time; then it is recommended you leave the visitor center where you pick up your reserved tickets 90 minutes before your cave tour actually starts; this gives you plenty of...

The guided tour through the system of caves it easy and absolutely beautiful. The rangers are able to explain all the amazing sites and allow ample time for all the photographs you want to take. The tough part is getting to the caves. I suggest you make the trek up to the caves early or late in the day to... More

This is one of the nicest caves aver visited. the experience is great. Lots of things to see, you get into tight, dark and cold but fun places. Is a must see if you are near American Fork Utah.

Book early, you can only get in with a reservation and they are limited. You will not be able to access the cave without a reservation for a tour. You will be hot and sweaty on the climb up & then enter a 45 degree cave, so bring a sweater/jacket for the cave tour itself. A great cave experience, but... More
