This hiking trail is located within the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest -- the upper part that is located near Logan UT. The trailhead has a small parking area accessible from route 89. Additional public parking kind of across the road at the campground. It is not a long trail -- about 2 miles to the top. I'm fairly new to hiking... More

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.

The hike from the trail-head on hwy 89 is just at 2mi each way. its just over 7 miles from Logan, and just at 32 miles from Garden City. There is parking at the trail head just off the road, but only for about 12 cars. Looked to be additional parking across the road at the Malibu campgrounds as well.... More

The hike isn't too bad. I've heard a lot of people tell me it's really steep, but didn't think it was. Will it make you sweat and breath heavier? Absolutely! But is it a good hike for exercise or to just get out for a bit? Of course! I was a little disappointed cause I thought the actual destination and... More

This is a beautiful hike. Easy access from the road, a quick drive from Logan, and about 2 hours roundtrip (we're not fast hikers). It is fairly steep, so I'd recommend a hiking pole or stick, and the trail is narrow and rocky, so be careful with your ankles, but the view is spectacular along the way and the caves... More

Wind Caves is nice hike and not too strenuous. There are places along the trail that widen out so if you want to stop along the way for a break they are there. The cave itself is more like an arch really and if you are afraid of heights I would not recommend going in or climbing down into the... More

Those who say, "look at the pictures and skip hiking to the Wind Caves", are simply nuts‼️ What a wonderful hike‼️ For such a popular hike, there is a lot of different data floating around. So I'll share what I got: My Suunto Ambit3 Peak had the round trip at 5.16 miles with an ascent of 1043 feet. My Garmin... More

This is a beautiful hike, though perhaps a little strenuous for those not in the best of shape. In any case, if you take your time and persevere, it's very do-able. Taking our time somewhat, we reached the cave in 1.5 hours (it's 1.8 miles each way); likewise, taking our time to take more pictures, it took us almost the... More

I'm glad I did it once - it's worth the hike, but take water. Nice views from the top and we were luck and had a breeze.

Trail is steep in some spots. You gain a lot of elevation in a short amount of time. The workout is great. The views are amazing. Take your time, enjoy the scenery and the shaded areas. The caves are fun. Just be careful getting to close to the edge.
