Welcome!

All the tickets for the cave tour are currently sold out, however, I'll put everyone who will RSVP on a waiting list and if someone can't use their ticket I'll let you know immediately.

Even if the tickets are all sold out you can always do the hike with us. Just not the cave tour. The hike is free.

....................

If you have never done this Cave Tour or at least not recently, I highly recommend it!

$8/person. Payment required in advance. It's not any harder than most hikes we do. The cave is amazing, safe, well lit and super fun!

Payment required for the Cave Tour.

Pay me since I've purchased tickets already. 

Pay by cash, check or VENMO. User name: SHERYL MCGLOCHLIN

I've purchased these tickets already so pay me personally.
FYI: I am not making a penny from this outing.
14 tickets total, $8 each. They will be going fast so act now if you want one.
First come. First served.
Pay me in person via cash, check or on VENMO. (search Sheryl McGlochlin)
Before paying, confirm with me that I still have tickets available.

BEFORE PAYING: learn what you are signing up for:

9 AM: Arrive and meet us at the visitors center. Be ready to start hiking at 9:15 AM.

9:15 AM: Tour starts AT the bottom of the mountain, at the Visitors Center, near the parking lot

Duration: 3 hours, 30 minutes (Visitors Center back to Visitors Center)

1.5 mile hike one way to get to the cave entrance. (considered "strenuous", again no worries. Stop as needed to rest.)
1100 feet elevation gain.
55 minute tour inside of cave (45 degrees F inside of cave, bring a JACKET)
100 stairs inside of the cave.
Bring a sack lunch to eat after the tour outside of the cave.
Bathrooms at the visitors center AND at the entrance of the cave.
These tickets will go fast and they are hard to get for the best hiking times of the day, so act quickly!

8:15 AM: Leave promptly and drive to Timpanogos Cave Visitors Center

OPTION: I'm eager to make sure all of my purchased tickets get sold, however, if you want to skip the cave tour and just come and hike the 3 miles RT, please join us. It's free. You may need to drive on your own or wait an hour until we are out of the cave, then hike back down with us.

Timeline

8:00 AM
Start gathering

There is a 15 minute window when hikers will be arriving. Step out of your car and join us for a short pre-hike meeting as we greet everyone, introduce new hikers, go over final instructions, address any concerns, arrange carpools, and announce upcoming events. 

8:15 AM
Drive to trailhead

Hikers are encouraged to gather at our meeting place, not the trailhead in case there is a change of plans at the last minute.  If you plan to meet at the trailhead, text me by 8 AM so you'll be informed IF there is a change.  

9:15 AM
Meet us at the Visitors Center

The trailhead is 30 minutes of our 6200 South meeting place. Carpool if you like. There is a bathroom available.  You are always welcome to hike a short distance if you prefer or stay for the full duration of the hike.  You decide but let me know at the meeting place or before if possible, since others may join you.

12:45 PM
Off the trail

Today we are back to the trailhead at 12:45 PM and back home by 1:30 PM.  This is an Out and Back trail. There is always a variety of hiking abilities in our group which is what we like. Come often and get to know other hikers with similar abilities.
