Sweet little trail. Started and ended easy with a bit steeper section in the middle. Give yourself a couple of hours. Nice to sit and have tea in the caves.

HikingGreat!

One of my favorite quick out and back trails. Great views and easy to moderate trail all the way to the wind caves. The caves are cool no matter what time of year you go. I like early morning or almost dark for this hike as you’ll be nearly alone. This hike is popular so if you don’t mind a crowd then go. 1.8 miles to caves one way.

trail had moderate to steep sections by overall was do-able for most anyone. trail was 2 miles to the cave, 2 miles back. cave was interesting but was a little underwhelming in my opinion. nice views from the top. shade was intermittent with less as you approach the top.

Good trail but bring a lot of water. We left about 10:30 from the trailhead and it got toasty. I'd estimate 40% shade at that hour. Great views but it was toasty but the breeze at the caves was nice.

Gorgeous hike! Make sure you bring water, the hike is pretty steep and not well shaded. The wind caves were beautiful! I went early (around 6:30am) on a Saturday and only spotted a few hikers.Highly recommend

Nice hike, especially easy to get to from Logan. It’s steep for a lot of the way, but there are plenty of shady spots to stop and rest. The views are so beautiful!

Great hike, I had it at 4.7 miles total distance and 1000 foot in elevation. We hit the trail about 7:00 am so the heat was not an issue I am in my mid 50s so for me it was a bit more challenging but well worth the effort. Great views from the top. Take water

Nice hike but would recommend going on a cloudy day or when the weather is cooler. It was in the 90's when we went and it was hot! There are some shady spots along the way but you are exposed most of the time. the wind cave at the top is really cool

Went at 5:30am the other week. Only saw one other group, was the perfect time to hike for an amazing view of the sunrise. Very easy path to follow, when we came down at 7:00 we crossed paths with 10 groups on the way up.

Great trail, marked very well. The caves are gorgeous and offer a great view of the canyon. The perfect trail to run down.

Great trail and incredible views all the way up. There are lots of braided trails that go off the main trail so keep your eyes open or you’ll end up in some scrambles.

Great hike. 5,8 and 13 year old did great. Not much shade so earlier is better. They loved the caves.

Good set of trails, very tiring. You can fill up water at the Guinavah Malibu Campground once you get there from Spring Hollow which is very useful.

it was a good hike I did it with my 8 kids. the trail is a little small and makes it hard to pass. people are in such a hurry to get back down that they almost knock you down and don't give you a chance to move over but the trail was nice and the caves are so worth it. my kids can't wait to do it again.

I love this trail so much. I did it many times when I lived in Utah. I hope someday I’ll get to do it again! The view is breathtaking.
