Hiking Utah- Wind Cave Trail

Wind Cave trail is one of Logan Canyon’s hiking trails. I would call this is a moderate hike. It is a steady incline, but most of the trail is smooth and easy to navigate. It is 2 miles to the summit.

The entire trail is narrow so we hiked single-file. It’s an ideal trail for practicing good hiking etiquette. Here is what I teach my kids-

1. Be polite to other hikers. My favorite hikers are those who are friendly when crossing my path. They make eye-contact, smile, ask me how it’s going or just say hello. I do the same in return of course and this makes the world a sweeter place.

2. Be courteous by sharing the path. In this case, other hikers were making their way down as we were making our way up, so one party would stop and step out of way (as much as possible), letting the other party pass by.

3. Take in the views from the trail. Staying on the trail helps preserve this beautiful world.

4.  Enjoy the wild flowers and pretty finds along the trail, but leave them alone. My daughter noticed these tiny white shells scattered throughout this trail.

This is not etiquette, but it’s always smart to wear sunscreen and a hat. You might consider bug spray as well.

Here is the wind cave. It’s approximately 1,000 feet above the highway.

It did make me nervous watching some of the young children as it was a steep drop off at the edge which slopes downward. Even we were sliding a bit as we explored the inside.

I would not recommend letting kids do this, haha! This is my son, Zach. He has an awesome blog you should check out!

This was a delightful trail with fantastic views. ♥ Have you been hiking this summer? ♥
