Moving Your Way to Fitness and Fun

Timpanogos Cave entrance
Timpanogos Cave National Monument created a hiking program to motivate participants to hike, eat well, and learn about park history.

Timpanogos Cave National Monument, in conjunction with American Fork Recreation Center, Lehi Legacy Center, and the Park's Concessionaire, implemented the Moving Your Way to Fitness and Fun hiking program for neighboring communities.

This project aimed to encourage stewardship and fitness in 4th to 9th grade students. The fitness centers coordinated a summer program to transport youth to the Monument to use the trail for fitness while receiving stewardship education from a National Park Service Ranger on a guided walk, followed by a tour of Timpanogos Cave. After the guided tour, the kids along with their chaperones hiked back down the trail where a healthy sack lunch was provided at the Concessions area.
