The majority of the trail is a gravel road to the natural gas plants on moose mountain, which isn’t the greatest for mountain scenery. Once you come to the end of the road, the trail up to the caves starts of well marked but sort of disappears and it becomes a bit of a scramble on loose scree up to the caves.

The caves themselves were pretty cool and very accessible. We didn’t go to the end to see the ice (we chickened out) but the cave was nice and tall and never felt claustrophobic. Bring a headlight and warm clothes as it is noticeably colder in the caves than outside.

If I were to do this trail again I would bike to the cave trailhead and would not recommend bringing your dog for this one.
