Great Hike!!

This hike is a nice workout with great scenery. The tour inside the cave is awesome. A "must see" up American Fork canyon

It's a 1.5 mile hike up to the cave entrance. The views from the trail are beautiful. I took my 7 and 9 year old and they did great. Bring your water for the hike up and a jacket for the cave. Even on a hot day it can be chilly in the cave.

I admit, I am out of shape but seriously that hike up the mountain was rough. I had to stop and rest. I thought I was going to barf. To add too the fact that I felt like a wimp I got passed up by kids and parents carrying their kids. Seriously I could barely get my own butt up... More

I went here with my family and had a great time. The climb to the top is taxing but doable for most people. The cave is interesting and the guides well-informed. The opportunity for pictures going up and coming down is also great.

The hike to the cave is quite long and steep, however, there are benches along the way if you want to stop for a break. As others have mentioned, it is best to go in the morning before it gets too hot. It is cold in the cave so you may want to take a light jacket. Take water and... More

The monument charges a modest fee per person for the guided tour of the cave. Be prepared to hike 1.5 miles on a paved trail that climbs 1500 feet. Summer months can be very hot, so book the early tours if available (make reservations). The views on the hike are spectacular, and the caves (Timp Cave consists of 3 interconnected... More

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.
