Easy to find and hike in about 2 hours. Great views of the forest and water. Many different trees and types of rocks along this hike. Very good for beginners that want to see different terrain.

My friends and I walked the 4-mile loop in about 2 hours, with a stop my the creek to chill our feet a little. Never too difficult, always very scenic. The creek with its lovely boulders, the majestic Cascade Mountains, the evergreens and wildflowers... stupendous! Take a vehicle that can drive the last ~5 miles on a gravel road.

It's an easy loop with spectacular creek and mountain views all around. The creek is accessible from many spots but the water is really cold! Very refreshing and good for resting sore joints though. The washboard road for the last few miles was a bit jarring but we'll worth it.

We had spent several days hiking in the North Cascades and wanted a peaceful place to walk without the big elevation changes and this spot turned out to be perfect. We hiked here in August when the temps were in the 90s by late morning and we were really grateful for the shady spots along the river and the chance... More

Easy 4.5 mile hike on well maintained trails. Mostly through forest with shade on hot days. Generally follows both banks of Icicle Creek. Some small waterfalls, plenty of photo ops. Recommended for all ages. Suggest start early as popular trail to minimize traffic.
