  • Dissapointed :/ it was cool, don't get me wrong. But going this early in the year made it next to impossible to walk through. (Early June) getting up into the cave was a sheet of ice, only i managed to get myself up the slope. And had to slide down on my butt back down. Wasn't worth all the effort in my opinion.
  • If you can time it where you're able to walk on the ice through the caves then this is a must do. A lot of people out there this afternoon but worth the patience to hike through the caves system.
  • What can you say about this place that hasn't already been said? See it. Take pics. Move on.
  • An amazing hike that one must try it's pretty easy to take.
  • We loved walking on the trail!!! The ice caves were a bit misleading we didn't know if what we saw was it, so we just kept walking to the cascades.
