I highly encourage people to visit this national treasure. It is worth the very vigorous hike up 1000 ft over 1.5 miles with a 1/2 mile cave tour in 45 degree temps as your reward. Try to book your time ahead as we almost missed out completely on the day we travelled there this trip. I have been here before... More

This place is beautiful! The cave was amazing inside and the scenery on the hike is amazing! You get a beautiful view and an amazing experience. I'm actually from the area and I go often, but for travelers it's a must see. Also definitely visit Arches, Zions, or Canyon lands.

Before you attempt this nice cave tour, be warned that it is a STRENUOUS 1.5 mile uphill hike to reach the cave entrance. There is then a nice 60 minute tour in a nice cool cave. It is then a 1.5 miles downhill hike to the parking area. It was hot in July, so think carefully before attempting the trip.... More

We lucked out and went on a partially cloudy day in July. It was hot, but not scorching. The hike is hard but it has beautiful views and a great reward at the top. The cave is really neat but if I had to choose only 1 thing to do on a single day stop in Utah, I'd take Zions... More

All the reviews warning of the steep hike are right on point...you are given 90 minutes to hike up a paved, very steep path with extremely beautiful views. You might see deer, chipmunks or snakes on your hike...we saw two of the three. We were fortunate to hike up with one of the Rangers, Brad, who took his time explaining... More

My family was amazed by the tour through the caves. Bryce did an amazing job explaining the formations and customizing the tour to our needs. We were all mesmerized by the cave structures. My parents started the climb, but were unable to make it to the top due to the strenuous nature. They were given a special movie down at... More

Wow! Incredible views as you climb to 6,730 feet. Well worth it but take water and be prepared for a 1 1/2 hour climb from the visitor center to the cave entrance. The caves are cool, wet, and, at times, require bending and kneeling to navigate certain passages. Take a jacket and your hiking shoes. The Park Rangers are great.

The trail was paved, but the trail was a steep climb. It was harder defending the trail than walking up. Our Ranger Guide was friendly, professional, and very knowledgable. He was willing to answer any question.

This place is more organized, well maintained and always beautiful. The hike to the cave is strenuous but the views are breath taking. Once in the cave it is also beautiful and well maintained. Worth the money to preserved this place.

This hike can be challenging, but both of our kids at three years of age have made the hike entirely on their own on separate occasions, so allow yourself a lot of time and just go for it. First, bring water. And a jacket, and sunscreen, because you'll need all of it. The hike is a steep climb in mostly... More
