The Mount Timpanogos Cave National Monument is a cool system of caves that you can walk through. We knew ahead of time that the caves were closed and that we would not be able to enter them. However, we had assumed that we would still be able to hike up to the cave. Unfortunately, this is not the case. There is a gate preventing entry about one-third of the way up the hill to the cave area. So while you can still walk part of the way up to the cave, mostly you will not be able to visit the monument at all. Note that the hike up to the cave is actually fairly steep and strenuous. Although the path is paved, you need to be in decent shape to do it. There is a very nice looking visitor center at the base as well. However, that was also closed at the time of our visit.

We hiked this prior to the Covid-19 shutdown. It's a steep hike up but it's on a paved trail with nice views. Take plenty of water and go slow and easy both up and down. The trail has some beautiful views however the cave isn't that impressive. It seems like the cave doesn't have that many formations compared to the others we've been to.

Looking for a picnic spot between Zion and Park City, we found this along the way. We had a babbling brook and the perfect temperature for eating our lunch. The cave was closed due to Covid-19 so we didn’t hike, but we then drove up over the winding alpine loop road to end up with a terrific sight with chair lifts moving! We had to ride to the top of Sundance! What a find.

Coming from Florida, which is flat, I knew the hike was going to be challenging for my family and me, but I wanted us to have an experience in Utah that we could not get in Florida. We came in August so it was warm. Make sure you bring water to stay hydrated during your hike up the mountain. Also bring sunscreen if needed. There is parking outside the main building and that is where you pick-up your tickets. We ordered online, which we highly recommend. We arrived an hour before our tour time, but keep in mind it takes almost an hour to get to the entrance to the cave, which is at an elevation of 6730 feet. As we hiked up the views were spectacular so we took pictures along the way. There are also informative signs that explain the rock structure as well as animals and plants that you might see or hear along the trail. Inside the cave the temperature is a lot cooler than outside so I recommend bringing a light jacket at least. You are not allowed huge backpacks. A standard bookbag size is okay. Check the website to be sure. Our tour guide was Michael who is a park ranger and was very informative during our tour explaining how certain cave formations are formed. He communicated with our group very well and even had introduce ourselves to find out where we were from. The tour of the cave itself takes about 45 minutes or so and then you have the hike back down, which is easier. Overall this is a great activity to do while in Utah.

The trail is steep (both ways), but manageable. The caves are cool, both in temperature and formations. The rangers are knowledgeable and good guides. There are several caves liked together, and the tour includes a few. The formations are incredible, and postcards are available to purchase to memorialize your visit. When they turn the lights out it is very dark, and gives you the flavor of what it would be like if you were exploring and your light source failed. Children who can hike would enjoy the experience.
