  • I loved this hike, the fall colors, smell In the woods,tiny creatures running around ,noise of running stream all along the hike, and you reach your destination within 30 Min's. Also the big granite wall facing you with numerous, slender waterfalls as high as the sky - as you walk towards the ice caves. What more do you want...😍😍😍 But I advice you go early.
  • Easy hike to an amazing, secluded area with huge waterfalls and ice caves being formed right in front of you.
  • 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.
  • A fantastic place, although definitely dangerous. Watch your steps if you want to climb the ice and rocks. Note that there is no cellular signal in this area so better don't take unnecessary risk, especially if you go alone.
