Beautiful hike for all ages. Using the map on this app to show our location on the trail was great to show the kids how far they had made it and how much left to go was really helpful.

great trail for kids

Unbelievable hike!!! Did this yesterday with my family of five—three teenage boys. Reasonably challenging but doable for individuals that only hike periodically. Wildflowers were beautiful. Trails well-maintained. Views of the surrounding mountains, streams, and waterfall gorgeous. Last 1/2 mike challenging but worth it.

Long drive down a gravel road to get the trail head. No cell phone service on the trail so plan accordingly.

This is a great family hike. We made it all the way to the back of the wind cave with our kids (9, 6, and 3 years old) and an excited German Shepherd. Our family loved this hike with countless wild flowers, a waterfall, and the wind cave. You're supposed to keep your dog on a leash. But don't be surprised to see other people not following the rules. Our dog was one of three out of probably 30 dogs that was on a leash. A minor frustration for those of us that are constrained to following rules.

I absolutely loved this trail it’s well kept and absolutely gorgeous there are so many flowers and out look spots! And it’s not a hard hike. I would do this hike over again:)
You do need head labs and so water shoes or another pair to change into( you do have to cross some water and my feet out soaked)

It’s a great hike with lots of scenery throughout and the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because when we went the water was too much to get across and actually go into the cave which was our main goal. I’m not sure if it’s because it was raining days before or if the snow was still melting but we could not enter the cave. This was in early July.

Absolutely beautiful! Rough road but as long as you’re in a 4 wheel drive you should be just fine. We had two kids with us and it was a blast. The lake was fun for the kids to swim in and cool off. We will definitely be back!

We couldn’t even make it to the hike! The trail to get to the hike requires an ATV or off road vehicle. We parked our SUV at the point where we could no longer drive the trail (about 1.9 miles from the beginning of the trail), and tried to hike in. It was fairly steep, and so many mosquitos that were constantly attacking, even though we had on bug spray. We didn’t even make it to the trail head! (We had 4 kids with us). I’ve been told there is another way to get in, but it doesn’t show on AllTrails. Unless you have an ATV, don’t try this.

Amazing place to hike! The views are amazing!

This may have been a Trail in the past, but it’s fenced off now and no trail that I can see - don’t waste your time.

The hike itself was very pretty. A few spots where just off to the side of the trail had some major drop offs. I’d say kid friendly but not toddler friendly. If you go into cave take a headlamp and jackets. Inside the cave you have a few stomach crawls and eventually leads to a waterfall but to get to it you will need rock climbing gear. I would not take kids into cave, but would stop at the waterfall in the mouth of cave.

Beautiful hike. This was my second time hiking this trail. Beautiful views the entire hike. I went the 1st of July. The cave was fun to explore. I’d recommend you bring a change of shoes as there are several water crossings. If you go into the cave the hike is just under 7 miles out and back. Would be a great hike for kids. There are several switchbacks but nothing too steep.

We went in early July and it was beautiful there. Nice and green with lots of wild flowers along the trail. No bathroom so make sure to go before you leave the house. It took about 2 hours to get up and 1 hour down. We went around 3 on a Saturday and not a lot of people on the trail. Lots of switchbacks but not super steep. Unfortunately, we didn't see much wildlife. All in all, Great hike!!

We do this hike as often as possible.

I don't quite understand where the trail ends, we went 2.75 miles out and the trail kept going but we were running out of light, wherever it is supposed to end, this trail is certainly longer than 5 miles. Were we supposed to go to that cave? If so, that would have been a solid 7 miles at the least. At 1.8 miles you can see what I think is the "wind cave" at your 2oclock, this pretty much stays in sight for the next mile and the views are great all along this portion. I'm not sure where we were supposed to have gotten to and formally turned around, but anywhere after 1.8 miles up should do. This hike is a gentle climb, but it doesn't let up the entire way so it's quite exhausting. There are several water crossings at the beginning of the trail, we were able to go across some logs, but on the way back those had already been overcome with water flow so we had no choice but to wade through ankle deep. Beyond that, the trail was bone dry. Falls were flowing hard. Parents carrying toddlers on your back, trekking poles help tremendously make the water crossings to stay balanced on the logs as you cross.

Short, steep, beautiful! My only wish was for the clouds over the Tetons to move out for what is sure to be a spectacular view! A return trip is in order.

The trail was beautiful, but it started hailing at the top. The waterfall coming out of the caves is still pretty full so access is limited. We will try it again later in the summer!

Beautiful hike!!

Fun and easy hike! Snow is gone and there are lots of bugs, but it was a great evening hike and didn’t take long at all.

One of my top trails ever. Went in early June and water was really flowing- saw multiple falls with trail culminating with a great view of wind cave. Take bear spray. This one can’t be missed.

DONT GO HIKING HERE YET. We made it most the way up the mountain but the whole way up, there’s was still TONS of snow even though it was 75 degrees outside!! It looks deceiving haha, it starts out pretty dry but then get snowy real quick. We didn’t make it down to the lake, but from the view we had of it, it looked frozen still. We also had to park quite far from the trailhead because there was a huge puddle covering the road and we couldn’t drive through it in our little Subaru crosstrek. I’m sure this would be a great hike in July when the snow has melted but for now I’d hold off unless hiking through 2 feet of snow is your kinda thing! There was a beautiful view at the top but I don’t think frozen and bleeding legs from repeatedly sinking in the deep icy snow is worth it.

We got 5.4 miles away from the trail head in our little Toyota Camry and there is a large hill that is basically a mud hill. I went half way up but started to slide. Maybe I’ll bring a 4x4 next time

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

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.

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

The hike there is beautiful, it's a little difficult to get down to the lake but worth it. There was quite a bit of people there already when I went (during summer of 2016)

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.

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
