For hikers who wish to be challenged, the trail doesn't end at the Wind Cave. There is a loop left exit of the cave, or by continuing past the cave at the main "entrance." There is scrambling involved regardless of which route you take.

Stunning views. Easy to follow the trail. It gets a little tough towards the top. There is some narrow places and some stepping over boulders and some loose rocks.

Great hike and great views! A very busy trail but adds to the fun of it. A few bees at the top didn’t scare us. Kids loved the hike as well!
