Timpanogos Cave National Monument is excited to announce opening for cave tours for 2023. Due to unprecedented snow in Utah and the resulting damage to the trail, cave tours will begin tentatively on May 31th to allow park staff more time to clear snow and repair the trail. Tickets are available for purchase up to 30 days in advance starting May 14th. The visitor center will be open May 17th.
“Timpanogos Cave National Monument just turned 100 years old, and we are looking to the next 100 years! We invite people to come to the park and to enjoy our new Centennial Lantern tour where visitors will explore the cave just as they did in the early years of cave tours – by the flicker of lantern light. Join us for our Music on the Mountain programs and catch artist sharing their love of the canyon through their art. For 100 years families and communities that have supported the success of the park and bringing people together and we look forward to seeing people come again,” said Shannon Stephens, Park Manager of Timpanogos Cave National Monument.
Events at the park include:
· Daily lantern cave tours
· Music on the Mountain series on the trail and at the visitor center
· Star Parties in summer
