Wonderful hike and views

We had the best time and the hike and views were just as spectacular as the cave. Well worth the trip.

Getting to the cave takes you on a steep hike, but it's well worth it once you get up there. Make sure you bring a light jacket as it is chilly in the cave. Kids an adults will love this adventure and learn about how caves form. Make sure you respect your environment and don't touch the natural formations as... More

Must climb along paved trail to get to entrance. The trail to get to the entrance could be a challenge if you are not in fair shape. They do have rest points along the way. Well worth the climb, very impressive.

Our family has visited Timpanogos Cave for over 40 + years. We have made the hike to the cave with our parents, and now with our own kids. We have hiked to the cave on sunny days and most recently on a rainy day, which gave us a new perspective of the scenery and several waterfalls. The cave inside has... More

This is not a huge cave but really interesting formations. It does have a strenuous hike up to the cave (about a half mile) but it is all paved. The drive around the loop and over to Cascade Springs completes the wonderful nature journey.

How many times does a person have an opportunity to hike " up " to visit a cave? Be prepared. It's an amazing hike up to the top of the mountain to take a cave tour. A wonderful day hike. Great views. Fun experience.

Me and a friend stayed here for a night camping, at Salamander Falls. It was free, and it was beautiful. A bit of a difficult drive, so make sure you have an appropriate vehicle. Stayed at the end of October and the temperature dipped down to -4C, but was still very enjoyable.

While it is a bit of a hike up to the cave from the park entrance, the gorgeous panoramic view of the mountains around you and the valley below are worth the effort. Once inside the cave, it's like stepping into a new world with the contrast of temperature, light and scenery. The guides are very knowledgeable park rangers who... More

A great family experience with beautiful stalagmite and stalagtites. THE HIKE IS A GOOD WORKOUT, BUT NOT TOO STRENUOUS.
