  • Description 

    This is the area with the most ice. The whole half circle gets covered with ice. There is a stream and a waterfall at the right side of the half circle that will freeze enough to climb when it's super cold; it can have some pretty cool ice formations.


    Getting There 

    Follow the trail from the parking areas and take a left up the big hill where the trail then turns right. Follow the main trail until you see the big half circle of ice on your left. ~15 minute approach.
