Visit it in winter should be much more beautiful than other seasons as there are snow everywhere, not just around the cave.

Such stunning views this time of the year, I was "wowing" the entire time. The recent snow makes everything look even more beautiful. Went at 7:30 am today. Didn't find any other hikers even after I was about to leave.

stunning and well maintained trail. more of a walk than a hike, but the ice caves and waterfall are gorgeous!

Very pretty walk and good place to bring a dog. My Golden Retriever loved it! Trails weren't marked very well but other than that it was good.

easy hike. super family friendly

Recommended parking up top and hiking down. You'll get a good workout going back up.

as of 5 dec the road is still open. this a very pretty and easy hike. the frost is making it a bit slick but nothing to worry about. national forest pass is required or a national park pass as well.

Fun short hike for a family or group looking for something easy. Old growth trees are spectacular and there's a fun suspension bridge that crosses over a stream. The old NPS interpretation signs from the 70s are a bit over the top and probably due for removal, but otherwise this is a fun, easy trail if you have a group looking for a relaxed adventure.

I didn't get to record my hike, make sure you download the map before you leave home. Really easy hike, bring layers.
went 11/30 - rainy and at times muddy.
we only went up to the ice cave, did not go into the cave. beautiful views all around.
bathrooms at ice caves TH are closed.

Amazing trees.

Great mile hike in. Ice caves were enormous! Can’t wait to check it out in the summer.

An easy hike with views of Snoqualmie Falls, the intensely powerful sight you've gotta see! Great for an afternoon out.

Another great view of the falls below, doesn’t take long, easy short hike!

Took my 9 year old on this with me and we had a good time. The trees were so pretty with all their fall colors, he liked skipping rocks when we got down to the water. Going back up the seminary hill I got breathy and felt like I was doing work, it was a good blend of easy walking with hiking. I also really love that this is so close to our house, I’m so used to driving out to north bend or the pass for hikes. Will definitely be back.

Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Trail was snow covered but easy to maneuver on. Cave was absolutely stunning. Got to see a small avalanche happen while there.

Made for a great snow hike. Nice easy 2 miles.

Besutiful short little hike, perfect if you don’t have enough time to do a longer hike!

I live this hike. The caves are beautiful

Easy stroll.

Good hike, beautiful falls.

Beautiful falls. I'd recommend parking at the lower falls, then hiking up.

Really good hike. Kid friendly and good balance is sun and shade.

Short 2mi. round trip hike. The bridges are a little slick during the Winter months. Beautiful hike and the cave is breathtaking! A child friendly hike.

Our gps said there was a road closure but that was false. Got there with no issues. At some point the cave has collapsed a large portion. see pics. There is also a huge crack on the left side of cave. Also a crack in the upper center piece of the cave. Hiking baby did not go inside the cave. I went in and walked towards the back and there is an amazing waterfall in the back of the cave. After leaving the cave went further down the trail and if you stand next to the small opening you can feel a draft like a fan. Pretty neat. Further down there is another waterfall.

This is a wonderful little trail in the woods on the edge of suburbia. It should be rated EASY. Most of the fall color is gone now but the forest is still beautiful and the birds are easier to find.

Very beautiful. LOTS of people.

Very nice quick hike. The lower falls are a treat to the eyes once you complete the hike. Definitely strenuous for those who do not hike frequently. All in all a must visit after a good rain. The views do not disappoint.

It’s a kid friendly hiking trail.

Such a fun hike! It’s quite icy in November but very fun!

Easy trail. The ice caves are very cool. If you go inside of them there is a waterfall at the end. Because the caves are melting the ice drips from the roof, so prepare to get wet. Bring a flashlight.
