Loved it. Colors were alive. A bit steep in areas and those afraid of heights might not like it. The trail goes along the China wall ridge. You can view the wind caves from here as well

This hike is beautiful but strenuous. You can start at either the Spring Hollow campground or the Gueneva/Malibu campground. I would start at the Gueneva/Malibu campground because the trail that ascends to the top has a lot of shale and is rather slippery which can be more difficult coming down than going up. After reaching the top you hike along... More

I started at the Guinaveh campground, and it was really steep going up. I was packing a baby and it was colder day than anticipated, the trail doesn't offer much protection from wind on the way up. Once along the top, the view is really beautiful. I really enjoyed the hike, I just wish I had a better idea of... More

This is about a 4.5 mile round trip. The trail is listed as 3 miles one way, but you can do a short 1 to 1.5 mile walk on the river trail to make it a round trip. The trail starts with a moderately steep uphill section on well maintained switchbacks. You then talk along a lovely exposed ridge that... More

If you are in relatively good shape and enjoy hiking, this is a great, not-too-difficult hike. Begin by taking Route 89 East through Logan Canyon. Park across the road from the Guinavah-Malibu campground and walk all the way to the top of the campground to access the trailhead. The trail begins by switchbacking up a modestly steep area that is... More

We did this hike yesterday. There was 5 of us. We parked across the street from the Guinavah Malibu Campground (near the Wind Caves trailhead) so we did not have to pay to enter the campsite. From the trail head you can either take the river trail down to Spring Hollow or you can begin the Crimson Trail first. The... More

This is a great spring, summer, or fall hike up Logan Canyon. It is roughly 3 miles in length, I believe. We typically will do this hike a few times each year. We often park at Spring Hollow, take the River trail to Guinavah campground, then head up the mountain and back to Spring Hollow. Usually takes us about 2... More

This trail is GREAT! a four mile loop trail, and good for hikers of all skill levels, if you are a novice, just take it slow going up AND coming down as both ends of the trail can be a tad steep but still safe and easy. I LOVE THIS TRAIL

The first part of the Crimson Trail, or China Wall, is a steep, rather strenuous climb with lots of switchbacks, but once you are two the ledge, it's smooth sailing with lots of great views and photo ops. If you want to take your time and explore, allow 3 1/2 to 4 hours. My husband and I did it once... More
