Explore three spectacular caves in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains.

Nestled in the gorgeous Wasatch Mountains of Utah, near the city of Highland, is the amazing Timpanogos Cave National Monument.  Around 750,000 years ago, hydrothermal activity began carving out the 340 million-year-old limestone and continues to form the spectacular caves present today.

Timpanogos Cave National Monument consists of three amazing caves to explore, Hansen Cave, Middle Cave, and Timpanogos Cave.  After exploring the visitors center, visitors walk up a beautiful, safe, paved mountain trail to the mouth of the caves.  Once there, a knowledgeable park ranger guides visitors on a fascinating tour of the three remarkable caves.  Spectacular formations, including cave bacon, cave columns, flowstone, cave popcorn, cave drapery, stalactites, and stalagmites fill the caves, along with the memorable Great Heart of Timpanogos.

Not discovered until the late 1800s and early 1900s, the caves at Timpanogos Cave National Monument have a rich history of the many who have visited, explored, preserved, and continue to protect these national treasures. Wear a jacket, as the year-round temperature of the caves is 46 degrees Fahrenheit.  Also, wear comfortable shoes and bring water for the fun 1.5-mile hike to and from the cave entrance.  Visitors also need to book a tour online beforehand, as they fill up fast, and getting on a tour as a walk-in is unlikely.
