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 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!!

This hike is moderately difficult. Take enough water, it is worth it once you get to the top! Give yourself plenty of time to get up and back.

Great hike. About 2 miles one way with 1,000 ft elevation change. Awesome view from the top and interesting formation of wind cave.

We loved this hike and did it with our 9, 7 and 4-year-old. We had to take routine breaks for our youngest, but that wasn't the worst thing in the world. The views are breathtaking and the hike was the perfect length.
