Timpanogos Cave National Monument will continue to follow current guidance from the CDC and other federal, state, and local health authorities regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). Currently both picnic areas, the Cave Trail, and the Canyon Nature Trail are open for use. More information will be added here as it becomes available.

Ready to spend some time in the canyon or hike to cave trail? We want to help you plan your visit; see operating hours and tour schedules. The visitor center is accessible and offers video programs and exhibits about the caves.

The trail to the caves provides spectacular views of American Fork Canyon and Utah Valley. It climbs steeply 1,092 feet over 1 1/2 miles, and is not wheelchair accessible. No baby strollers or wheeled vehicles are allowed on the trail. Local residents regularly hike the trail for fun and fitness. The canyon views are spectacular.

Cave tours frequently sell out well in advance, particularly on weekends and holidays. Plan your visit in advance, review the information on this website, and call the park at (801) 756-5239 for further assistance.
