Cave Tour Fees
Important Note - Cave tours are very popular and often sell out in advance. Weekends and holidays are particularly busy, and it is best to avoid those days if possible. Tour tickets may be purchased up to 30 days in advance online or by calling (877) 444-6777 between 10:00 AM and Midnight EST. Your tour begins and ends at the visitor center. This means that the time you purchase your ticket for is the time you should pick that ticket up at the visitor center. Plan on 3-4 hours for your hike up, your cave tour, and your hike down.
Tours are limited to 16 visitors. The tour schedule is subject to staff availability, but tours are generally offered every 15 minutes from 7:00 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. during the summer season. Please remember that anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. To increase safety for all visitors, no wheeled vehicles, including strollers, are allowed on the cave trail.
Any tour tickets not sold in advance go on sale at the visitor center at 7:00 a.m. on the day of the tour, and must be purchased in person. Note: same day tickets generally sell out early in the day.
Tickets must be purchased at the visitor center before hiking to the caves; tickets cannot be purchased at the cave entrance. More...
Introduction to Caving Tour Fee
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 National Monument, including the Canyon Nature Trail and Swinging Bridge Picnic Area, 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:
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.
