Distance: 7 miles roundtrip. Elevation gain: 2300 ft. Spectacular views of Logan Canyon. Can be crowded on a weekend. No fee to park.

Starting at an elevation of 5100 feet you gain 2300 feet in just 3.5 miles. As you drive up Logan Canyon you'll see the trailhead on the left side of the road, just after Guinavah-Malibu Campground. A fairly steep hike, but also very well maintained and marked trail will meet you at the trailhead.

The Wind Caves are probably the most popular hike in Northern Utah and for a good reason. As you can see in the pictures you can look out to Logan Canyon from the cave with a great view. If you look across the canyon you'll be able to see "China's Wall" which is way cool and you can also hike that.

Some very spectacular views can be seen from the caves and if you go at night you will see amazing views of the Milky Way. Hiking the Wind Caves at night can be dangerous if you're not prepared, make sure to bring the right gear you will need for a night hike if this is the route you go. The path is super well maintained so shouldn't be a problem to find at night and with lighting will be super visible!

Really popular hike! If you’re interested in going off trails and doing some amateur climbing to get to the top it’s worth your while πŸ‘πŸ»

Fun On Snowshoes!

We visited in the winter and snowshoed in. There were great ice formations inside the caves. Very beautiful! I want to visit again in the summer, although I hear it is pretty busy.

My Go To Hike

I hike this trail at least 5 times while it's nice out. It's absolutely beautiful in the fall as the leaves are changing. The view from up top is great.
