Timp cave is a fun place to visit especially on a warm day. The hike up takes almost an hour, but it is on a paved path. Once inside there are really cool formations.

Steep, short hike (paved), up to a great tour of an interesting cave system. Certainly worth going at least once, can be hard for old/unhealthy/young, due to the steep nature of the hike up. Switchbacks and fairly big altitude gain. Good tour guides, pretty caves,...More

I am not real familiar with dates. It can very depending on how much snow was built up on the path over the winter. That could be the case this year.
