Timpanogos Cave National Monument includes an impressive cave system known for its colorfully decorated caverns. It is located in American Fork Canyon, along Utah's populous Wasatch Front, and so it attracts a large number of visitors every year. To reach the caves you must hike up a steep 1.5 mile long trail. A guide takes you through the caverns and you exit not far from where you came in. You then descend along the same trail you hiked up.
Timpanogos Caves may only be entered with a guided tour. Tours are offered from mid May through mid October every year. On weekdays you may be able to join the next tour if you just arrive at the visitor center and pay your fees. On weekends and holidays, tours fill up quickly and you may have to wait several hours if you do not have advanced reservations. Tour tickets may be purchased up to 30 days in advance by calling (877)444-6777 or visiting recreation.gov.
