Driving in the canyon
The Monument is surrounded entirely by the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, and visitors must stop at a US Forest Service information station on the way to Timpanogos Cave. Visitors going just to Timpanogos Cave are not required to pay the US Forest Service American Fork Canyon fee. Visitors planning to go beyond the Monument and use US Forest Service recreation sites are subject to the following fees:
- $6.00 - 3 day pass
- $12.00 - 7 day pass
- $45.00 - Annual pass
The US Forest Service honors The America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass, Golden Age or Senior Pass, Golden Access or Access Pass, and Military Pass.
Timpanogos Cave National Monument does not charge an entrance fee to enter the monument. There is no charge for driving through the area, using the picnic areas, or hiking within Monument boundaries. However, a fee is charged for ranger-led tours of the Timpanogos Cave system, and all visitors to the cave must be on a guided tour.
