Bring water and a jacket. It is a nice cave with a paved path. It is just very steep. I remember doing this hike as a kid, and my own 4 year old made it just fine.

If you can handle it physically, it is a great experience. I did it once. Once is probably enough for me. The hike up is a bit difficult. Some places in the cave are a bit narrow. I enjoyed it very much though. We stayed at Hampton Inn in Levi Point, UT.(beautiful hotel).It had a nice hot tub,which was very... More

Timp cave is awesome. The hike up is a bit steep, but it's worth it. Personally, I would opt for the Hansen tour. It is a private tour and you are able to see some of the most amazing things- hike down to a pure pond and see bacon ribbon in the walls. Costs a bit extra and you need... More

The hike up is tough, particularly if you get to carry your kid most of the way. Wear sturdy shoes. Once inside, the cool air is refreshing. Nice spring or autumn activity.

The hike up can be difficult. I've personally carried a 3 year old on my shoulders (not recommended). The cave is fun to go through. Make sure you bring a hoody or a coat cause it can be chilly inside. A water bottle is also a must. I've seen several of these caves in different parts of the world and... More

Wasn't really prepared for the long strenuous hike up to the cave, but the views were absolutely amazing and the cave was pretty cool. Make sure you wear proper shoes and if you have little kids be prepared to make plenty of stops along the way.

We arrived in late September, just a couple of days after the cave had closed for the season (and luckily just a few days before the federal govt shutdown closed all national parks), so we decided to instead explore the park where the cave is located. When approaching the park, you enter a canyon with steep walls; a majestic view... More

I lived in SLC in the late '80's thru early '90's & visited Timpanogos Caves several times. The cave is accessed by a steep & sometimes strenuous 1.5 mile hike up the mountain, gaining over 1000 ft in elevation. While the views are spectacular, & they have benches dotting the trail, it may not be for everybody. This was always... More

Rangers were all very helpful and friendly, and there was a couple near the top to answer questions. Don't miss the "Last Chance" bathroom near the top either! Be sure to get a picture of that with the beautiful valley floor below. Hike is a bit steep, but anyone in reasonable health should make it as you can walk on... More

We were unable to get tickets to tour the cave, so decided to hike and see the surrounding area. Trail is paved but steep. Saw beautiful views and wildlife. Checked their gift shop, not that much selections and their prices were too high. Their bathroom is located also below, you have to go down with steep stairs, one false move... More
