Guinavah-Malibu Loop via Crimson Trail and Riverside Nature Trail
This is a difficult loop trail to Guinavah-Malibu in Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. This trail offers stunning views of Logan Canyon, the opposing "Wind Caves" trail, and a view from ~6,100ft. of the "China Wall" cliffs. There are opportunities to see a variety of wildlife native to Northern Utah, including Mule Deer, Elk, Hawks, and a variety of plant-life and wildflowers.
Being a loop, hikers can start from either Guenva Malibu Campground trailhead, or Spring Hollow Campground trailhead. There is parking available all year at Spring Hollow, but keep in mind Gueneva-Malibu Campgound is seasonal, typically opening around mid-May, and public parking may be limited. However, the Wind Caves Trailhead is just across highway 89, and there is usually parking there.
This trail may be slightly difficult for Children, as the trail does get quite skinny, and muddy. It's around a 1,200 ft. climb, and a few sections are quite steep. Consider the lower Spring Hollow River Trail as an alternative, it's quite flat, yet still overs views of the river, opportunities for viewing fish in the river, and birds in the trees.
