It was a last minute decision to go to Timpanogos and were lucky to get into a group. You can't make reservations on the day of the hike so the spots are first come first serve. It was raining when we asseded and I think that kept people away. It took us about an hour to hike to the top.... More

I was passing by on my way to SLC, so I figured I'd stop. The visitor's center is small, but you also buy the tickets for the cave tour here. I bought m ticket at 3:40 p.m., and the ranger said I should be able to make to 5 p.m. tour. It took me about 50 minutes to hike the... More

My 10 year old and I hiked this to see the caves...worth it but read the reviews....it is quite a hike. We are in decent shape and it still took about 50 minutes to get to the top. The tours are done in small groups and is nicely lit to show highlights without ruining the rustic feel of a cave.... More

It had been many years since I hiked Timpanogos Cave. It is a hike that will kick your butt, but it is paved all the way up. If you are an avid hiker, this hike will take you about 30 to 45 mins. If you want to take your time and see this beautiful views, they give you 1.5 hrs... More

The cave requires a one and a half mile hike with 1065 feet of elevation gain. The way is asphalt paved, quite wide, some shade. Health conscious people can hike the trail, most start early in the morning, never seeing the cave. Cave tour tickets are sold at the small roadside visitor center, are often sold out. They allow you... More

This place is a must see if you are in the area or if you've lived here all your life! I grew up here and have been several times. As a child I took it for granted as I have traveled a fair amount and have never seen a cave of this magnitude that is so easy to get to.... More

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
