Awesome hike! Local guy from Park City said it’s the best in town. It’s April 23rd and there was still snow on the top half of the trail—we almost turned around because we weren’t prepared for snow, I just had regular shoes on—but thank goodness we didn’t!! The view at the top is so worth it!! Overall the trail isn’t too difficult, the snow made it a bit harder, I imagine when it is all melted it is pretty easy. We are fairly fit and do Orangetheory a couple times a week, but are from Dallas so we definitely aren’t used to going hiking regularly and aren’t used to elevation or snow. I’m so glad we made it to the top it really is an amazing view!

Moderate Hike with awesome view!!!

Did not have to walk in the water in the first 10 minutes.
No snow on 4/20/18, a slight breeze, very pleasant weather! I suggest you start at least mid day, that way the wind cave wont be in the shadow of the hill its on. Better lighting for better pictures. This is a unique, natural formation; it is a nice reward for the hike.
This is very doable, don't let the elevation gain per mile scare you off. We saw parents with kids and a dog, old people trail running, and some parents packing a baby up. This is great for anyone. If I lived in Logan, I would be here quite a bit.

My wife and I love this trail. Not a lot of traffic, and some gorgeous wildflowers. We hike up this trail even when we’re not going to the top . . . just for the solitude!

Beautiful hike and the caves are amazing. So cool with great views.

once you turn off the Indian trail and head South (not marked) you pretty much are going up, up and up. The valley is peaceful and you won't pass any other hikers. Lots of animal tracks in the mud and snow once you are in the canyon. Totally worth doing, but be prepared to climb.

Short but semi steep trail. Very popular. Great spot to watch sunset over SL valley. Trail was dry. Dog friendly trail, with many friendly dogs. Street parking at trail head with 3 hour limit. Should be plenty of time for this trail.

Hiked in the rain. Nice and easy. The dog loved it. Recommend dry months, you walk in a river bed for a minute

Written from inside the cave.

Up here in the wind caves, if you sit inside, it's like you’re sitting in a big ear. You sit and listen with more power than normal human hearing because the rock interior gathers a large quantity of sound and funnels it down toward you.You hear the hum of the valley. Mostly the hum of humans. An airplane up overhead, a semi truck on the highway far below. But overall the sound that you hear is the wind... and the water; the forces that created these strange rock formations and this valley. You’re reminded that while humans are a force, nature is a much more powerful force. Out here you feel like just another living thing among the living things. You feel small.Your wants and worries feel insignificant. All you need is food, water, and shelter. You don’t hear people clamoring for an iPhone X or a new pair of Jordans. You don’t hear people moving to an affluent neighborhood or networking. You don't hear the "ding!" of a notification on your phone. You don’t hear people stunting on one another. A mountain lion could remove you from this life in the next twenty minutes. You’re listening for his silent footsteps through the brush. There isn’t time to dwell on much of anything. There’s only time to feel the rawness and realness of being just a human.

What a great hike! Beautiful scenery all around.

Good hike, but not really too pretty. I’m sure in the fall it would be more beautiful.

Good leg burner to start the Spring with.

Quick hike but a good workout! The view at the top is always nice too!

I love going up the side of the mountain for a good challenge. The trails all seem to lead to the same place but aren't marked. Beautiful view

Great hike all around! Definitely need good boots as the trail was completely covered in snow and it is a decent incline. Beautiful wooded landscape throughout and lightly trafficked. Close to Park City but you feel like you’re more remote!

It’s a quick jaunt. Still a little muddy and slick in some places.

Hiked this on the morning of March 3 after a decent snow shower the night before. My husband and I had microspikes but you could probably make it up with just decent hiking shoes. The sky threatened more snow, but the dry weather held out.

Pretty steep trail and very muddy which made it slippery.

Gorgeous and a must do in the wasatch. Combine with Raymond’s peak as well.

Still muddy. Gorgeous view. I expected natural rock formations as the furniture but it’s stacks of rocks in the form of chairs. A bit steep. Definitely a moderate trail.

trail is dry now. 2.14.18

Very pretty! This hike will get you breathing, but it’s not hard. Mostly dry, but there was a bit of mud towards the top. The cave itself kind of freaked me out with how slanted it was.

My Strava recording said it was 4.0 miles, 1204 elevation and it took 1 hour 23 mins.

We hiked this trail the other day. It was beautiful, especially in this unusually warm weather we’ve been having. Very little mud. Definitely worth it. We took our roommates’ pup and he had a blast!

So good! Awesome view and “seating” at the “living room”!!!

Great morning hike. Somewhat muddy and slick this time of year.

Plenty of spider trails, choose wisely!

Very pretty cave. Somewhat steep but not hard.

Not too difficult, I’d say it’s somewhere between easy and moderate if you’re in decent shape. Much more pleasant in winter vs scorching summer heat. The trail is muddy right now but I was just fine in my hiking boots! Nice short jaunt with awesome views of the Canyon!

Super muddy and slick today! More mud and snow than dirt. I wore Solomon hiking shoes and was fine, but regular sneakers will be soaking wet by the time your done. Gorgeous hike! Good workout.
