If you want to explore into the cave, please note that doing so requires a guided tour, and buying a ticket (either online or at the visitor center) is required to secure your position in the tour. Plus, getting to the cave entrance requires a steep, 1.5-mile uphill hike, so be sure to carry plenty of water with you if... More

This cave is beautiful but requires a strenuous walk up to it. The path is asphalt but the altitude makes it difficult for those who are affected by it like I am. It is worth the hike and kids love it.

We live close by and thought this was the year our youngest kids would enjoy it the most. We paid for the cave tour which is optional. You can just hike to the opening of the cave and then hike down (I do this with my friends once a week for exercise). I would highly recommend doing the cave tour... More

We have family in Salt Lake City so we try to plan a small adventure every time we're out there. Timpanogos has been on our list and we were finally able to go. First of all, make reservations. The tours are limited in size and availability so make your appointment weeks or even months ahead of time. Secondly, the cave... More

Timp caves are only 20 min from our house & are one of the places where we take all of our out-of-town guests who visit during the summer months. Even though the hike to the cave is fairly strenuous and takes about an hour, it is doable even for small children. We have taken babies and toddlers before but you'll... More

The hike up to the cave is a good workout but well worth the effort. Beautiful scenery as you go up. Places to stop and rest and catch your breath if you need to. The cave is amazing but be sure to take a jacket or heavy sweater even in the summer as the cave is rather cold inside.

Started at visitor center, learned about some history of the caves. Warning signs everywhere about the strenuous nature of the hike. Well, we walked over 6-8 miles a day and it took us 1.5 hours to hike up 1.5 miles to the entrance of the cave. The walk is almost entirely paved, but the grade is very steep and there... More

This was an early morning trip that i took with several friends from work. The tickets were reasonably priced, the staff was very friendly and informative, and the trail was clean and smooth. The view on the way up to the cave gets more and more impressive as you scale the side of the mountain up American Fork canyon. The... More

Three caves, linked by tunnels, are absolutely fabulous for all of the formations they contain. Stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, columns and curtains are just a few of the formations you will see. All of the formations are up close and personal. While the tour guide is talking you can concentrate on getting National Geographic quality pictures of delicate frostwork or a... More

Took my kids and wife up there on Labor Day. The hike was a bit much for the kids, but we made it up in about 70 minutes and the tour was great. Very informative and entertaining at the same time.
