Tickets can be purchased at the ranger station/ visitor's center. (something like $8/adult and $5/kid) They give you about an hour and a half to get up there. Really it takes about an hour of climbing up the narrow path - hey, at least there's a path - to get to the cave/s. It's a guided tour, which takes about... More

This hike can be done with entrance to the park, but going on the cave tour costs extra even for military members. The hike is 1.5 miles long with a 1,100 gain in elevation the path is paved, but is not suited for strollers as the path is along the cliff. Amazing views from numerous benches along the path give...

I was not planning to visit here, but I decided at the last minute to go. I'm glad I did. I've visited many caves in the eastern US and was pleasantly surprised. The hike is difficult but worth it. I'm glad I went.

We did the cave tour in June 2015 and had a blast! The hike to the top was tough, especially for us flat landers who are used to living and exercising in elevations of 500 feet, but there were lots of spots to stop and rest along the way. The trail is also nicely paved so even with the steep... More

This is a really nice hike and activity. You can do this with small children, but you will end up carrying them from time to time. If you want everyone in your group to make the hike on their own two feet, I would say 7 or 8 and up, but a lot of parents take smaller children on the... More

This natural wonder is a great date for the family. The guides explain the fascinating history of this place which is a real treasure and resource for the state of Utah. It's a long, winding, beautiful hike up on an asphalt, well maintained and safe trail. This visit is worth the effort

It's really cool. To be honest, if you want a fun way to get some exercise and see some cool nature stuff, just do this! It's cheap, active, and fun! I hope you appreciated the pun in the title. I've been waiting years to say that to someone.

This is an experience that the whole family will remember for the rest of their lives. The hike is beautiful. We love it when they turn the lights off in the cave and God's creations are so beautiful.

Very steep, challenging climb to get to the cave. Well worth it. The cave was amazing. Rangers are great. Small restaurant at the parking area serves food that is reasonably priced.

We went on a Sunday, took three kids age 4, 7, 9. We got our tickets at the ranger station because we didn't decide to go til the day prior. I think you should definitely make plans to go and purchase your cave tickets beforehand. They only allow 16 on each tour every 15 minutes. I am sure it sells... More
