The actual trail has shifted since this was mapped. The original trail is now blocked off and it takes a new, longer route. It eventually joins back into the original route, but you add about half a mile.

Not easily labeled, many trails in area. The ICE Cave is off the main road that you walk to. The trails are nice trails, directions just not easy to follow on here. Hiking shoes recommend on some trails like Backbone

easy walking short path with concrete flooring. There are steps and not handicap accessible. Nice overlook of the waterfall.

First to Review

If you’re looking to just go to the cave I wouldn’t recommend taking the trails. You can park your car along the road and go through the road close signs, the cave is halfway between the two road closed signs. The trails were extremely rocky, muddy, and steep next to the roads. Also, the ice cave wasn’t all that, more trouble than it’s worth if you ask me. Also the trail on here isn’t 100% accurate it’s an entire network of trails, so you would be better off looking for the biking trails online of the area for a more accurate layout of all the trails.
