Route: "This delightful loop hike is a favorite any time of the year, but particularly in the early spring when the higher elevation destinations are still closed to hiking.... The loop starts at Spring Hollow Campground, [at the junction to Spring Hollow Trail,] climbs up above the China Wall, follows along the top of the China Wall, then descends and follows the Riverside Nature Trail back to Spring Hollow [Campground]....

"The views... are exceptional; you... catch glimpses of Cache Valley to the west, Beirdneau Peak to the northeast, and directly across Logan Canyon are the Wind Caves... [atop] the China Wall."
