  • Love this spot. Beautiful scenery, nice trail. My parents took me here as a teen and I've brought my kids and friends here. Great spot for a picnic. Be sure and go into the ice caves if you can. When ...  more »

  • 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.
  • The Cascades for beautiful, the Ice Caves, the trails. The only bad thing is parking. Unless you're there early in the morning or late in the afternoon you will not find parking
  • 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.
