The cave is breath taking and if you love caves, this is for you. There is a little hike to the cave but it is worth it.

Timpanogos Cave is a great place to visit. The hike up to the cave is beautiful. The hike can be a little strenuous--mostly the last few switch backs. Recommendations: don't take children who can't walk by themselves, take water with you for the hike, and tie a jacket around your waist--you will most likely want to use it in the... More

We tackled this hike/adventure not knowing exactly what we were getting ourselves into! We started our hike up the canyon about 9:25 in the morning. It was cool as we began but the sun and the elevation gain soon took it's toll on my body's air conditioner. This hike is not for the faint of heart! The trail is very... More

This is an incredible cave. The hike uphill can be hard, but if you take frequent breaks it is doable with small children. The views are amazing and the trail is paved and safe. If you go buy your tickets online since they sell out. Bring a jacket for the inside of the cave since it can be chilly. Also... More

My four grand kids with my wife and I, hiked the paved path to the cave. Spectacular views of the mountains and great glimpses of the valley in the distance. The cave is like I remember it when I hiked to it in 1980. Beautiful!

Timpanogas Cave has the BEST park rangers / guides of any National Monument that I've been to...ever. The hike itself is a paved path with about a 1,000 foot elevation gain over 1.3 miles. It can be strenuous, especially for flatlanders, but if you take it slow, you'll have an amazing time seeing what time and water can do to... More

The hike is steep but paved. A fun sight to tour. Ask the park ranger about the legend of the Indian woman.

Our family went with friends from Utah to hike up to Timpanogos Cave and had a wonderful time. The hike is strenuous and steep in places but is paved all the way up. But even me, being from Texas and not used to the altitude and being out of shape, made it up to the top and toured the caves.... More

It was a brilliant hot day in the Rocky Mountains. 100 degrees in the shade. Trail to cave entrance ascended 1000 feet in elevation over 1.5 miles to an altitude of 6800 feet. 3 quarts of water, and glad I had it. Hiking trail is paved. Took advantage of shady rest spots to avoid heat exhaustion. Of course, it was... More

We ventured to the cave on the Fourth of July weekend. It was pretty slow in regards to other hikers. The weather was wonderful. When they say the hike is strenuous, it is true! They give you 1.5 hours to get the opening of the cave. We took almost the whole time. We had gma and gpa, teenagers, 4 yo... More
