The Cave is closed for the winter, so you can only hike up about half a mile before you hit the locked gate. However it’s a nice challenging steep half mile.

HikingGreat!

I did this hike a long time ago I don’t remember much. I do remember that the cave was super cool. And this a great beginners hike. I would recommend this hike

Great trail, it is closed so you can only hike up half a mile. I knew the cave was closed but thought you could at least get to the top. I thought wrong!

HikingFeeGreat!No shade

Did this with a youth group, and it was fine. Its steep in some places, but its paved and super trafficked. Bring snacks/water and a jacket for the caves. Be careful of the cliffy parts and the gravel can get slippery sometimes.

If 90 year old Norman can do this hike everyday, I have no excuses. Steep but well worth it.

HikingGreat!

This was a fun, but steep hike, although the trail is paved all the way up to the caves (which were closed). We went early (7 AM), and the trail was busy by the time we were coming down. Beautiful views the entire way, and lots of places to rest if needed!

Due to the COVID 19 the Timpanogos Cave was closed. Only the trail to the cave is open but also close at 5 pm (information that you should know before you go visit this place). The trail was very well maintained and paved the entire way. Amazing views down the valley.

I was there a little while ago and I found the description post along the climb up very interesting. The cave was okay, if its your first one you will love it. But if you have been to a few maybe not.

Buy the cave tour ticket! The trail itself is uphill the whole way but its paved. (like that makes it much better) lol But the tour through the cave is cool. I've been to nicer caves but I still enjoyed it a lot.

4/29/20- Trail gate closed about 1/2 mile in. No signs at the beginning saying it’s closed. Bummer because it looked like it’d be an awesome hike. Definitely going to have to come back.
