Physical/Mobility Accessibility

The Timpanogos Cave Visitor Center and Swinging Bridge Picnic Area are ADA-compliant. The trail to the caves is paved but strenuous, with a 1,000 foot elevation gain over a mile-and-a-half. Due to the steepness of the grade (15-20% in places), no wheeled vehicles are allowed. Ranger-led programs at the visitor center and the picnic area are completely accessible.

Deaf/Hard of Hearing Accessibility

For visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing, a variety of publications may be obtained at park headquarters. Wayside exhibits with illustrations and text on natural features are situated throughout the park. Park films are closed captioned.

Blind/Low Vision Accessibility

The visitor center includes tactile exhibits. Recorded descriptions of exhibits or waysides are not yet available.

Service Animals

Service animals are encouraged in national parks. For a definition of a service animal, please go to http://www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm. Service animals are permitted everywhere at Timpanogos Cave, including the cave system.Owners are encouraged to identify their working service animal with a vest. Identification is not required, but helps prevent unwarranted "dog on trail" complaints from other visitors.
