This hike is popular with the locals. It is easy to get to from Logan and it is the first trail in the area to be snow free in the spring. A little steep the first half but the second half has nice switch backs....More

This is a fun hike that almost anyone can do, as long as you follow some common sense guidelines. I've seen small children that looked like they were no older than six or seven, and older folks that were at least in their seventies. It...More

It's a great hike for families. Hiked it with my little ones years ago and many times with my teenagers and young adults. It's a bit steep and narrow at the top. I know we surprised people with how young our children were the first...More

Not a long hike but a quick ascent. Bring a little bit of water with you in the summer, especially if you are coming from sea level. Amazing payoff at the end of the hike. The Wife and I have hiked most of the National...More

This hike is about 2 miles up. It's not straight up but it does have about 8-9 switchbacks. We left about 10am late June and it was just fine. Enjoy the views and take some time to look around the cave, relax, and have a...More

Good parking area at the trail head. The beginning of the hike includes shaded areas. Lots of switchbacks as the trail climbs in elevation. Please stay on the trail and don't use what looks like shortcuts; the shortcuts are created by thoughtless, stupid people who...More

I originally mis-read the description of the hike thinking it was 3.5mi one-way for a 7mi round trip. I was disappointed it was only ~1.8mi one way. But it was steep enough that I got my heart rate increased. The views along the trail are...More

Close to 2 miles to get to the top, and the trail goes up for most of the one-hour ascent. Coming down was much quicker, with the rain as an added incentive to get back under cover. The caves themselves? It's certainly good exercise and...More

The switch backs are a wee bit challenging but I would not classify this bike past moderate. The wind caves are interesting and you go across the top to the entrance. This is a well traveled local favorite, so you’ll always find other hikers and...More

This hike took us about two hours and didn't ever get too steep or hard. It was perfect to see more of the canyon and a super neat view at the top. Highly recommend especially for newcomers in the Logan area. It's a great hike...More

I don't see people camping at the wind caves, although you could probably find some place for the night off the trail. Also Just accross the highway from the trail head is Gweneva Camp ground. Also lots of good places to... More

Great canyon views all along the trail. Since its an out and back, you can stop anywhere along the trail and just return to the trail head without going to the caves.

The "All Trails" App on iphone and android has the trailhead and trail mapped and pinned. I recommend using (free) if you want to know specifics about the trail and route.
