Nice moderate hike with good views, though the route I took is different from the map here. I parked at the White Rocks National Forest lot and went up the Keewaydin trail to its juncture with the AT/Long Trail, and followed up to the spur to the outlook that gives a nice vantage point to the west. Also checked out the Greenleaf shelter and another side spur that gives views to the northeast, and the hike amounted to 4.7 miles up and back. There hasn't been any trail work this spring, so there is some blowdown across the trail in places, but it is an easy-to-follow trail.

Great hike.
1. Plenty of parking with bathroom facilities.
2. Steep, rocky, beautiful trail. Nice soft level out about 3/4 way up with beautiful fauna.
3. Views similar to Baker Peak. Route 7 valley looking West.

Steady incline, some parts are pretty rocky, but stunning flora along the trail and the waterfall near the trail head is stunning. Dog and kid friendly. Worth it to go for more than just the ice caves.
