Timpanogos Cave Will Be Closed 4 Days A Week For Construction

Timpanogos Cave National Monument is a popular attraction in American Fork Canyon, just NE of Provo. People interested in touring the cave need to be aware that it will now be closed four days a week as crews work to upgrade facilities.

The Provo Herald has this article about the construction, and its impact on cave tours. Below are excerpts.

Timpanogos Cave will now be closed Mondays through Thursdays for the rest of the summer.

Crews are using that time to construct a new cave exit shelter. The good news is that the cave will remain open for tours every weekend, Friday through Sunday, until Oct. 16.

Even though the cave will be closed four days a week, the visitor center and concessions are open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday for visitors to enjoy the interactive exhibits, films, book sales, advance ticket purchases and for food and beverage service in American Fork Canyon. The visitor center and concessions will be open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday until Oct. 16.

The park will also offer free evening programs through Labor Day every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. Contact the visitor center at (801) 756-5238 for locations.

The cave usually closes for the season in mid-October, when snow starts to fall on the trail.
