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.

We had family here visiting from New York in July, so we thought a hike to Timp Cave would be just the thing to do, and it was! There were 16 of us in all, which is the maximum number for a group going into the cave. Fortunately, we made our reservations early so that we could all be together... More

Beautiful hike to the cave and spectacular formation in the cave. The hike can be a it strenuous as there are steep sections. But it is worth the effort.

We are fortunate enough to live near the American Fork Canyon. I LOVE hiking season, which generally runs from May through Labor Day in September. The guides on the Timp Cave trail are friendly and fun to visit with. So are the hikers! It is a great workout for those who just want to hike up to the cave and... More
