Thanks to other trippers advise, we found the trail head after the 3 mile gravel road. We made the mistake of parking further down at the camp ground entrance and started our hike from there. The water level is low this year and the trail was fairly high along the bank. We could not find a location that we can... More

The Icicle Gorge is Amazing.Loved the beauty of the river and how you could see the river floor and all the rocks on the bottom.So clear and clean.The trees are beautiful as well.Lots of people rafting the rivers and hiking the countryside.

A storm was threatening when we went to the gorge. It just added to the beauty and mood of the place. Easy hike, beautiful scenery. A bit of a drive to get there, but well worth it.

Beautiful day out. Trail is easy. Getting to the trailhead did take some effort as the last several miles are offroad.

We miss the old arcade and fun buzz of all the activities they used to have, but still a nice place to relax..just less to do than years past

I really like the views down in to the gorge! Getting out and looking down onto the boulders by the creek was awesome!
