We actually went Memorial Day weekend. It was a Saturday and we arrived late morning. Both parking lots were full. People were parking across the busy HWY. So we did as well. Just be very careful crossing the HWY.

No facilities of any kind. The main tail head was under water but there was a path to the trail from the secondary lot. Other than that, there was no water on the trail or mud to speak of.

Bring water, bring a hat and definitely bring a camera to capture the amazing views from the entire hike. Take time to stop and look out!! We had to stop several times to catch out breath.

Trail is well maintained,there were lots of people on the trail. Dogs are ok…if yours is behaved.

Took about and hour and 20 minutes round trip. Like I said, we stopped to take photos, take drinks, and breathe!!

The cave is awesome and the scenery unmatched!! Take a hike and explore!!

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.

Very steep hike. You are climbing nearly the whole way but the destination is worth it. Even though the hike is only about 2 miles I would consider it to be a typical 4 mile hike up and 2 miles down for planning purposes. Take plenty of water. Avoid this trail on hot days or hike in the cool morning and evening.
Shoes with good traction are suggested to avoid slipping on steep loose trails. If you are going to do one hike in the Canyon this is the hike. If you are not good with steep hikes enjoy the river trail starting at Stokes Nature Center trail head or on really hot days enjoy the river trail by the golf course on the south side of town, look for the paved trail start across the railroad tracks from Rendezvous Park.

This is a great beginner hike and gives you some beautiful views of Logan Canyon. It is a steady climb all the way to the top and downhill all the way back. The hike ends up at the wind caves -- caves carved by the canyon winds which are quite unique and worth the short hike.
