An awesome hike up Darby Canyon to the Wind Caves. You can explore into the cave pretty far without any technical experience or gear, just bring a coat and flashlight... Oh and be ready to crawl!!

Darby Canyon

Distance: 2.38 mi
The trail is well-maintained and the switchbacks make the 1800-foot elevation gain barely noticable.
