By far one of my favorite hikes!! It's shaded and by a stream so it stays pretty cool, even when temps are nearly 100!

Started at the Wheeler Creek TH, and went right at the fork to Ice Box canyon. Overall an easy hike; There's usually a moderate amount of traffic - hikers and bikers. Ice Box canyon is great to hike on a hot summer day because a majority of the trail is shaded and is kept cool by the creek it runs along.

WATCH OUT FOR MOUNTAIN BIKERS!

Great hike! Not too difficult but definitely need to watch out for hard core mountain bikers! First 1/4 mile not a lot of shade but after that tons of shade which was nice on a warm day. Definitely going again. Maybe this time we'll hike farther. Hiked about 1.5 miles then kids were ready to turn around.
