Timpanogos Caves National Monument

Located high on the rocky slopes of American Fork Canyon in the shadow of Mount Timpanogos in Utah's Wasatch Range are three limestone caves: Hansen Cave, Middle Cave, and Timpanogos Cave that make up this national monument and local treasure. These exquisite caverns are decorated with an elaborate display of helictites and anthodites in a variety of colors. 

The Timpanogos Cave System is accessed by hiking a strenuous 1.5 mile paved trail with an elevation gain of 1,100 feet. After completing the roughly 90-minute hike, visitors will experience all three caves on an hour-long ranger-led tour. The route through the cave is paved, lighted, and has several flights of stairs. Timpanogos Cave National Monument preserves these caves and their fragile underground wonders for you and for future generations to enjoy. Plan on about 3.5 hours round trip for your visit.

Advance Tickets Required!

ALL visitors are required to have a ticket, including infants. Before arriving at the park, be sure to download your tickets to a mobile device or print ahead of time. Cell phone service is minimal in the park. The time on your ticket is your Visitor Center arrival time. At the Visitor Center, you will receive a required safety message before beginning your hikes to the caves. Arriving early is recommended.

Driving Directions

From I-15: Take Exit 284 (Alpine-Highland exit), turn east on State Highway 92 and proceed ten miles (16km) to the monument.

From UT 40 or US Hwy 189: Travel US Hwy 189 through Provo Canyon, west on Orem 800 North (UT 52). After 2.4 miles, turn right on State Street UT- 89. After 3.8 miles, turn onto Pleasant Grove 100 East (UT 146). Stay on this road for almost five miles, as it turns into Canyon Road and takes you to the mouth of American Fork Canyon. Turn right up American Fork Canyon to the Visitor Center.
