Popular Utah Caves
Timpanogos Cave National Monument is one of the most popular caves in Utah. Three spectacularly decorated caverns feature stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, draperies, calcite crusts and frostwork, just to name a few. The cave sits atop a steep, paved trail in American Fork Canyon in Utah’s Wasatch Range. Guests must be part of a guided tour to explore this extensive cave system.
Part cave, part museum, Moqui Cave is a quirky and unforgettable destination. The large cavern was bought and converted into a museum in 1951. Three large chambers house the Chamberlain family’s eccentric art collection and fascinating history, while also showcasing geological rarities found throughout Southern Utah. Appealing to cavers and beyond, Moqui Cave is truly a one-of-a-kind destination.
A short stroll into the reddish pinnacles of Bryce Canyon ends at a mossy, seeping cave, offering a smaller-scale sampler of Bryce grandeur. Consider visiting before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. to avoid peak visitation, as Mossy Cave is an extremely popular trail in summer. Parking and camping are restricted in this area to avoid damage to (or from) the delicate rock formations.
