  • We set off on this short hike with our 8 year old son in tow. There are points of interest all along the hike. The lower forest contains many fallen trees and plenty of new growth. Then, you cross a c...  read more »

  • Been here many times over the last 30+ years. Easy hike, almost wheelchair easy to the view point. Nice, beautiful drive getting to the trailhead. Weekends are very busy, weekdays are better. Dont expect much mid-summer to fall, most of the snow/ice has melted. No cell phone service, but thats not an issue because you are there for the the hike and views, not surfing fhe internet, right? Enter the caves at your own risk, but notning in there you cant see already, trust me, ive been in there. There is a waterfall to the west/right of the caves worth checking out, if you are up for the 1/4mile walk to it.
  • Scenic drive leading to a nice walk with a cool ending. Our young kids made it there and back with ease and we all enjoyed the trail.
  • This is a beautiful hike and it's only an extremly easy 3 miles round trip with such a huge unique reward.
  • Worth the drive. Get there early. Stunning nature. Family friendly hike. *DO NOT GO INTO THE ICE CAVES* there is nothing special inside, just more rock. Touch the ice, but don't let any of it be above you. Ice caves kill.
  • Easy and beautiful hike. Took us less than 2 hours round trip including time hanging around the I've caves.
