We hiked this trail on a Monday morning around 7am...there was nobody else on the entire trail. For me it was a hike with a decent climb the last third part of the hike. Definitely worked up a sweat! We also saw our first snake on a trail...

We went a little later, got there about 8:20, not intentionally, but with kids it's a little more difficult to get them moving at 5am! It took us about 2.5 hours, just finishing up just before 11:00. It was great for us all.. my son (8) and daughter (3) loved it! We'll be back soon... our first for wind cave trail.

Lots of bees at the top

I started this hike from the parking lot on Meridian (start of Bulldog Saddle trail) and headed NW starting this 7.3 mile trek counter clockwise. The first 1.5 mi is very rocky and inclined and gets more steep as you get into the NE portion of the trail. I started this hike at 3:30p at 102 degrees and once I got to the north side it became easier but lost cell service for about 20 mins on backside.
West side of trail was fairly easy. The whole trail is very picturesque especially the N-NE side. Once I got to the restrooms I still had to hike the trail E back towards my car which was another 40 min hike. 90 ozs of water is what was consumed and ran out of water just 10 mins from car. 3:35 was elapsed time to complete 7.9 mile trek.

First run in the new Jeep. Great place to get a feel for your rig, easy going. A couple of spots lock in the front axle and no problem. Beautiful area.

on Wind Cave Trail

I started this hike just after 6am. It took a total of about 2 hours for the entire hike. If you go early in the morning the ascend up will be shaded. It's a moderate hike. The cave was much cooler. The bees were keeping to themselves. Nice views.

We went early in the morning, most of the trail stays shaded if you start early. (Before 7 in Aug)
It's a nice hike, a good moderate hike, not too long and the trail is easy to follow.
There are bees at the wind cave, so just a warning. They just buzz around you, but in case people are freaked out by them, there are quite a few.

Spent six hours riding today with the kids and had a blast. Entered through the Wolverine Pass entrance and drove through to the AA pit entrance. Came back up and took FR10 to Bush Hwy. It was about half mile ride to Pebble Beach so we got out and let the kids swim and cool off. We had our 16 month old, 6 year old, and 7 year old with us who had a great time.

Did Pass Mountain trail and Wind Cave trail. Start to finish was 6.5 hours for the whole loop. Get an early start, no later than 5:45am. Good variety of challenging terrain and test of endurance. Roughly 11.5 mile hike.

Nice short burn, we did the pass trail first and at the end we did this trail .
good work out at thevend. nice views
