Hubby and I hiked this MODERATE trail starting about 11am on a Monday in Oct and a few parking spots left. It took us (him 71 y/o, me 59) about 1 & 1/2 hrs. to go up with several stops to breath and drink water and much less to come down. It is up most the way with a few fairly level open places to catch your breath, or stop like we did! Plus when you stop you can look around without tripping. Parking is minimal but there are two areas for it and you just have to arrive early on weekends. Maybe 1/2 the trail is in the shade but I recommend wearing layers and be prepared to shed a few! Once close to the caves, you do have to go down a few feet over rocks to get to the entrance. Just take your time and be careful. The cave floor is slanted towards the edge which then is a huge distance down, so watch your footing and do not let little kids or unstable folks go close to the edge. There are no guard rails or anything like that to hold on to or catch you if you start to slide down. Hubby helped me get close to the edge. The views are breathtaking. Highly recommend doing this hike when in Logan Canyon.

This hike was 2 miles to the top and 2 miles down. It's a 900ft climb. We went in the morning on a hot day - so needed plenty of water. There are a couple of small parking lots on the side of the road, but they were pretty full by the time we got there. This route was steep, there were quite a few people, and the path was narrow in places. There was quite a lot of erosion, where people had taken a short cut instead of following the trail. The trail is quite well maintained, but the damage caused by people taking short cuts was difficult to repair. I think you have to be moderately fit to do this trail. You can of course turn back before the top - but the trail is the most beautiful once you get to the top, and if you're not planning on doing the whole thing, you'd probably be better on a different trail as this one is very steep and not very scenic (relatively) until the end. At the top, you reach a cave and a beautiful view. The trip down was a lot easier than the route up!!

I did it!!! As a 65 year old woman and my first time, the two mile hike up to the wind caves was a little difficult for me but I rested a few times and enjoyed the beautiful scenery along the way. . There were people of all ages on the trail. Once you reached the top, it was amazing to see the rock formation and beautiful view. I will definitely do the hike again and going to try my best to beat my last time hiking up the trail. Everyone of all ages must do!!!

Ok... I don’t know who the people are who say this is an easy hike, because for us middle-aged city dwellers, it was somewhere between the Sahara desert and Mt Everest. If you are a well-trained Olympic athlete, you will likely jog this thing in 20 minutes.... if not, start EARLY (it gets HOT), take plenty of water, and allow lots of time to stop along the way to catch your breath and allow your heart rate to come back down close to normal.
The trail is well maintained and beautiful- climbing through fairly dense forest and winding it’s way up the canyon. We saw lots of birds and they serenaded us... urging us on (or possibly waiting for us to die so they could peck out our eyes). About the only other animals we saw were a couple of chipmunks that did their best to trip us up - probably working with the birds.
Seriously folks, this thing is a BI!@H, but once you get there, you’ll be happy you kept going. And going. And going. As you near the point of giving up, the trail will level out and skirt around the side, changing direction. After a bit more climbing, you’ll reach a lovely overlook — stop to take in the view, but you’re not quite there... turn back toward the mountain and follow it to your left down a fairly steep embankment and you’ll be rewarded for all your pain and suffering. Standing in that natural cave, looking back into Logan Canyon was spiritual. Go early enough to catch the sunrise. Enjoy!

This is a fairly short hike to a set of caves about halfway up the ridge on the north side of Logan canyon. The caves are large and wide open on a few sides so there is no cave exploring involved. In addition to the caves there are good views of the canyon and the ridge on the other side. Of course every hike in Cache valley has good mountain views. This hike is 2.6 miles round trip with 980 ft of climb. Since it is on the north side of the canyon, the trail is snow free later and earlier in the year than most others around here. It will be a hot hike in mid summer. The path climbs quite a bit but is never very steep because of the switchbacks. This is a good hike with kids.

First, let me say, I would recommend this hike. Second, we did not make it all the way to the caves.

We started off a group of teens and late 40's aged adults. None of us are in great shape or particularly active. The beginning of the hike says to make sure every person has a bottle of water. We did. The majority only had 1 bottle of water. One 16- ounce bottle. A couple of the kids had finished that in the first 1/3 of the hike.

Naturally, as this was a first Wind Cave hike for all of us, we didn't know we were only in the first 1/3 of the hike. But, none the less, the water was gone. And it 90+ degrees in the middle of the day. Only those of us with more than 1 bottle were prepared to make this trek.

As it was, the teens went ahead of the adults. I am 46 years old, overweight and out of shape, but this is a do-able hike. It is steep and long and hot. I had hiking poles which greatly helped the knee joints. And, I stopped a lot for water breaks and resting. I also asked "Are we half way there yet?" to people coming down which is how I know how far we went.

The teens left the adults in the dust and made it to the caves. However, since some were out of water, they also suffered from dehydration and were feeling light headed, nauseous, etc. They quickly turned around and came back, meeting us adults about 2/3 of the way up. We were just starting into the switchbacks. Naturally, we adults shared the extra liquids we had but that left us out of water. While out of our care, they had even drank the dog's water! (Make sure to bring water for your dog, if they come along). Being responsible adults, we turned around with them and headed back to our campsite (Guenevah) where the dehydrated ones were cared for.

I felt like I had done a lot of huffing and puffing to not get to see the caves but also were wiser to the volume of water we should have had. If you aren't "real" hikers, plan on 2 hours to get there. I saw people in no better shape than I (and just as much overweight) that had made it to the caves and were on the way back down. So, I'm sure we could have done it. And enjoyed the cool rest of the cave. There were also plenty of children that passed us going up and we saw plenty of kids on the way down, having already been to the caves. (Thankfully, not the same kids, as it was disheartening to get passed by a 2-year old. LOL!)

So, don't let my not making it turn you away. Do the hike...Just realize it is a "real" hike, not a walk in the woods, and have plenty of water. Everyone I saw coming back down insisted it had been worth the effort to get up there. Be prepared.

Very nice hike, short and beautiful. We went there with a kid and our dog and it was fun for all of us. At the top when reaching the wind cave you will get your reward by seeing the beautiful view up

This trail was considered a “moderate level” hike, and also happened to be the most popular hike in the valley. It is pretty steep on the way up, I saw a lot of families with very young kids and small dogs.... I’m not sure if they made all up. Despite the steepness, once you made it to the top, the view through the caves are stunning. Totally worth it.
If possible, still recommend going in the early morning (during summer) and bring water.

It’s a fun 3 mile-ish round trip hike. It’s got a pretty decent climb, but nothing crazy. The wind caves are cool to see when you get up there. There is also a great view of Logan Canyon up top. If you take kids keep them close by when you get to the caves. There are some pretty steep spots as well as some cliffs so you don’t want to lose them!

We LOVED hiking the Wind Caves and will do it again. It's a hike anybody can do if you go at your own pace and take your time. Also, if you are a Geocacher, there are several caches along the trail that are fun.
