We were not planning to stop here because the reviews of the foot path were only so so, but our schedule changed and we took advantage of a free evening to do the hike that starts at Meyers beach. First the hike is easy. It...More

I saw all the publicity last year about the caves but the timing did not work out for us to go. This year, it was a mission to make it if the caves were to open again. They opened February 28 and we were there....More

Something to do for a saturday adventure but I'd say check out the pictures on the Internet and save yourself the trip. The day we were there it was a mass exodus of people in a line as far as you could see. Kind of...More

My wife and I made 6 mile round-trip from Meyers Beach. Had to park a mile away so 8 miles round-trip for the day. It was worth every step we have not seen such beauty in a long time. We wore ice Trekkers which allowed...More

After reading about the horrific crowds on weekends (and seeing the photos that looked like The March of the Penguins), my husband and I opted to do this on a weekday. 7 hr drive from MKE. The Ice Hike was very manageable / and quite...More

We spent a sunny Sunday afternoon at Mawikwe Bay, temps were about 8 degrees. The ice formations on the rocky cliffs are beautiful, but it takes some doing to get there. Due to puplicity, thousands of people are coming to see the sites. Cars were...More

I had been kayaking here during the summertime and thought it was beautiful then. I must say, even in winter, the beauty is breathtaking! Well worth the frigid walk to see the ice caves. We went to Meyers Beach before sunrise and had our choice...More

Simply beautiful! The ice that forms off the caves to the lake are awe inspiring! The caves are located on Lake Superior and can only be seen a limited time depending on the weather and wave action. It's been 5 years since the last time...More
