good little hike. Breathtaking views.

We figured (3 of is) that it is closer to a 7 me round trip, but absolutely beautiful and worth the hike!

Great snowshoeing trail. Really pretty along the creek. Trail is pretty well groomed for snowshoeing.

I did this hike in June of 2016 with my wife and son. Like that of previous reviews, this is a 10 mile out and back hike. This hike is also more on the difficult side as well. We ran into a number of people that were struggling on this trail that felt it was far harder than the moderate app rating. Personally, my family and I thought it was a beautiful hike with a lot of beautiful scenery. We will definitely hike this trail again if I’m ever in the neighborhood again.

I love this hike a lot.

Went to this cave with my friend with a tour guide. The wait was horrible but it is definitely well kept. the stairs we're also very slippery so you'll definitely have to be careful, but other than that you'll definitely enjoy it.

One of our absolute favorites. We have gone in the summer, spring, and fall. It's gorgeous in the spring/summer with all the flowers

Beautiful trail with just the right amount of snow to make it a tiny bit more fun for the kids!

beautiful and historical hike!

Nice if you need to get outside real quick, the hike is short and easy and swimming in the waterfall is fun.

It was a nice climb and beautiful views along the way! I'll be sure to hit this trail again.

Cool little hike that can be completed in a couple hours! Lots of history.

For more information and to get a better feel for the hike, I filmed it and threw it on YouTube. https://youtu.be/3twcjuqeDik.

Well-maintained, excellent hike with brilliant fall foliage. Well worth it.

Nice looped trail. I ran the Tree Molds Trail and then Broken Looped Trail for a total of 4 miles. It was in late May and it was warm, but it was neat to run around an inactive volcano. :)

I just wanted to clarify for people this is actually a 10 mile hike. The description is extremely misleading. The 5 miles are not a loop and you will be ascending a steep grade for most the hike. The cave lies near the top of mountain and you will climb another mountain and work your way around the canyon. In addition, the drive to the end of Darby Canyon road involves 4 miles of gravel road that will be slow going to reach the trailhead. Make sure you are prepared and take suitable precaution. I have hiked many areas in the west and i would rate this as a moderate to difficult hike. It it definitely worth doing.

This is on my Top 10 hikes! Easy hike with jaw dropping views. Perfect for kids! My boys 9 and 12 said this was one of their favorite hikes and we've had our share of hikes! I imagine it is fabulous in the summer for swimming and wading through the creek. Lots of nooks and caves to explore.

We started the trail with no snow and by the time we made it to the cave there was about 4 inches. Such a beautiful hike and the cave is awesome! The last tenth of a mile is the toughest part but not bad; I would consider the rest of the trail to be easy.

I went on this hike twice in my life while in a church camp. Sadly I've never been to the caves, but the hike is still worth making, it has gorgeous scenery, including some breathtakingly bright, colorful wildflower patches (depending on when you go of course) and the waterfall at the end is nice as well.
Only complain I have is that I remember it being a lot less steep than it actually was

So different and amazing.

Jump Creek is easy to find. I went in the spring when the water was very high and parts of the trail were underwater. Despite the flooding, my trek to the falls was a quick and easy. The falls really are an amazingly beautiful sight out in the Owyhee desert. Saw hawks, coyotes, and people.

Great easy hike

this was a neat little rocky hike out to the falls and back. the falls were beautiful and it was a nice swimming spot until it got super crowded. the rim trails were pretty cool as well, definitely recommend making the trip

Really beautiful trail. The hike up wasn't too bad, but it was steeper than I was expecting. The climb into the windcave was really steep. Also, don't wear Chacos on this hike. There are a good amount of rocks on the trail, and I caught the front of my sandals caught multiple times

Very nice

Great family hike.

Can't find anything negative to say. Will do this one again for sure. Beautiful hike.

A decent afternoon hike. Lots of good history about the Big Burn (I recommend the book of the same name). The info boards are up to date and interesting. Trail is well-maintained but not very challenging. You can't access the mine entrance which became emergency shelter in 1910, but you can see it from the trail above (about 25-50 feet away).

A must see, so much beauty. Wear a sweater or light jacket inside is very cold.

Good trail for kids about five and older. A consistent but fairly light climb, terminating with a waterfall and access to the wind caves.
