SUMMARY

The Wind Cave trail takes you to the delicate triple arch and natural cave is near the top of the China Wall geologic formation on the north side of Logan Canyon.  This is part of the same formation found on the Crimson Trail on the south side.  It is dry enough for hiking in early spring.

The Wind Cave trail is a beautiful, yet steep, hike that is frequently hiked during a full moon.  The caves are large and are a great place to stop for lunch before hiking back down.  This hike has great views of Logan Canyon on the way up to the cave.  Allow about 1 hour to ascend to the Wind Caves, 1/2 hour at the caves, and 1/2 hour to descend.  There is ample parking at the trailhead and rarely gets too busy.

DIRECTIONS:  The hike starts about 5.3 miles up Logan Canyon National Scenic Byway (U.S Highway 89), near the Guinavah-Malibu Campground. The trailhead is on the left side of the road as you are driving up-canyon.
