Ice caves and sams point are really cool. Up to the point is easy, the trail down and back into the caves is fairly rocky and steep but was worth it for the break from the heat. Worth noting you can't drive to the ice caves trail head so you are really doing a 3ish mile 2 hour hike.

Not a bad place to start for beginner hikers who want a challenge. The views are great in the end. I went here today, end of summer, and the path was easy, clean and quick. Dog-friendly. Trail-runners-friendly.

Nice to do the loop trail 2.5 miles and ice cave .5 miles. Nice cool spot though no snow or ice ( it is August). Saw immature eagle, bobcat and water snake at lake. Was my wife and 2 girls (14 & 9). Wild blue and huckleberry everywhere.

This was a fun area to hike. Cave temperatures are nice and cool, so it was nice to get out of the heat when I was there. Was told there is Ice on the trail 9 months of the year, but it was all dry when I was there in August. There are some sections that are narrow, but overall not that difficult of a trail. There is a section where you are above ground and walking near open pits/crevices which could be pretty dangerous if you are not careful, but its one of my favorite trails yet.
