This track leads one and a half miles from the Visitor Center to the beginning of the Timpanogos Cave tour. It is open from May through October.

The trail leading to Timpanogos Caves extends one and a half miles from the Visitor Center to the cave entrance. A brochure, describing the plant life and geology of the caves, is available at the trailhead and visitor center. The track is steep as it ascends 1,065 feet to the cave openings. It is not recommended for individuals with heart or respiratory conditions. The trail is open from early May through early November each year. It closes during the winter due to slippery conditions once the first snow falls. Expect to spend three hours hiking from the Visitor Center and touring the cave.

Directions: From Interstate 15, Take the American Fork exit and follow signs toward the Alpine Loop Scenic Drive, which is State Road 92. The National Monument lies along this scenic byway within the Uinta National Forest east of American Fork.
