This was my 2nd trip to Timpanogos Cave. My last visit I was in my 20's, and it was hard then. I'm in my late 40's now, and it was HARDER now. Having said this, IT IS WORHT IT! My wife (46); daughter (13); and son (11) all made it. Only my 13 year old made the walk with ease.... More

The cave is awesome and worth the effort. Don't rush to the top because they only take 16 in at a time and you have a reserved time which is 1.5 hours past your check in (ticket) time. We reserved the first one of the day (7am) and got to the cave at 8:10 with 20 minutes to spare. There... More

The hike up the mountain is strenuous for sea-level dwellers. Thankfully, there's a bench every few hundred feet or so. Once in the cave, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. It's a little cramped in the cave, so pack light but bring lots of water and a light jacket. The formations are beautiful, and the chill is welcome after the... More

The 1.5 mile hike to the top is slightly strenuous but offers amazing scenery. The cave is well worth the $8 admission price. It has several nicely decorated rooms and the long passages are fun to walk. Although it is not the most spectacular commercial cave we have visited, the experience as a whole was a good one and well... More

Simply put, our family loves National Parks. This was our third cave within the national park system. All are very unique and different. The difference in Timpanogos Cave is the experience of getting there. There is a 1 mile hike to the top of the mountain which is listed as strenuous. The trail itself is nice, but the elevation at...

My husband and I had both hiked this previously, but we decided our 8, 6 and 4 year old were ready. The hike is three miles round trip and you'll spend about an hour in the cave. The hike has a decent incline but our kids did it without much complaint. Our four year old wanted a piggy back for... More

I'll start this review by saying that it is coming from someone who is VERY afraid of heights and made the hike with a group of friends during a recent vacation. I'm sure that it would have been a more enjoyable hike if I'd had the nerve to look at any of the scenery rather than the rock wall on... More

We love caves and really enjoyed this one because unlike any other one we have been to, it is on a fault line. The hike up was defiantly not my normal hike and our legs were still sore two days later, but it was totally worth it. Being from Florida/Arizona we were thankful to have brought up our light jackets... More

If you want to see America, you have to climb a few hills. We started our trip from Provo, Ut and drove the 25 miles to Timpanogos Cave. Our GPS directions were a little off and we had to drive about 1/4 mile down the road to the Visitor Center. The last part of the drive is very scenic. Traffic... More

The hike is quite strenuous, even for someone in who is in great shape...but as much as you may start to regret the idea before you've reached the top, I promise, it is worth it. The cave is a very neat place to visit and learn about, and then your hike back down is a breeze! Words of advice --... More
