Route: "The hike to Wind Caves... quickly becomes a favorite from early spring to late fall. During the summer months... early morning and evening hikes are shaded and refreshing....

"There are many 'short cuts' along the switchbacks and the erosion is getting out of control; stay on the main trail, please!...

"The main wind caves... are actually large rooms or caverns caused by wind and erosion in parts of the China Wall, rather than caves."

"The delicate triple arch and natural cave is... part of the same formation found on Crimson Trail.... This... popular trail... is short, steep and uses lots of calories. "
