Caves & Arches

Cache Valley

Wind Caves: Years of wind and water have worn a delicate triple arch and natural cave into the limestone outcropping at the top of this 2-mile trail. Also known as Witch’s Castle, this fascinating formation provides a clear view of the China Wall formation as it winds through most of Logan Canyon’s midsection. During summer months it’s best to hike this trail in the early morning hours.
5.2 miles up Logan Canyon, off U.S. Hwy. 89

Logan Cave: As you travel along Logan Canyon National Scenic Byway, you’ll notice the craggy mouth of Logan Cave on the cliffs above the road. The cave extends 4,000 feet into the mountain and in some places is 70 feet high. It was carved from water seeping along faults and joints in the limestone rock, which slowly dissolved the rock. The cave is now gated and closed to visitors to protect the Townsend big-eared bats, a sensitive species that roosts in the cave.
12.2 miles up Logan Canyon, U.S. Hwy. 89

Minnetonka Cave: A half-mile tour through room after room in Minnetonka Cave provides a fairyland display of stalactites, stalagmites, and banded travertine. You’ll climb 486 stairs and guided tours are available. The caves are cool, so bring a jacket.

Minnetonka Cave is a fascination 9-room cave of stalactites, stalagmites and banded travertine.  Don't miss one of the striking stalactites in the cave, called the Bride, known for its lacy appearance.  Three stalagmites, over 10 feet high, have diameters of nearly four feet.  Enjoy a 90-minute, half mile walk into this beautiful cave.  Be prepared to the 400 steps up and down in the cave and bring a jacket, since the cave is cool (40° year round).  The road is paved to the mouth of the cave.
