Timpanogos Cave National Monument reviews
The 1.5 mile uphill trek to the cave is tough, but doable. Fun tour through caves, interesting things to see in there.

The 1.5-mile hike up the side of the mountain was a bit of a workout, but the views along the way of the surrounding valley are spectacular. Hiking by myself at a decent pace took about 45 minutes, so definitely plan for longer if you're with kids or taking a more leisurely stroll. My tour was set at 11:00AM, and when I arrived at the Visitor Center I was told to be up at the cave entrance by 12:30, to give you an idea of what the scheduling is like. The caves themselves were awesome, and the ranger who led my tour was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions about the caves that I had. Will recommend to all of my friends and family in the area.
Great place to visit if in the area. The hike up is pretty strenuous and steep if you aren’t somewhat in shape. The tour is pretty interesting and the guides are very informative. The only con is the number of large kid groups. When the parents don’t keep them in line, they push to through the group and make lots of noise! This should be for ages 13+.
