This is a beautiful area and you can find some areas for hiking. The fall colors were gorgeous and the water blue and pretty.

If you want a quick look at just some of the outstanding beauty of the area, drive out to see this and walk down to the bridge and take in the majesty of the place.

Had a wonderful hike here with friends and family!!! Beautiful!!!!! Relatively easy so younger kids can go- and you can extend the hike (the loop) to add miles which we did. Very very nice!

Icicle gorge trail is beautiful and easy hike. It took 2 hours since it's a 4 or so mile loop. Will be going back next Oct. to see the fall colors. Trail very well maintained and lots of well defined parking.

I am going to visit Icicle Gorge in a week, where is the best place to stop and park the car for the best hiking trail? Is it the Icicle Gorge Trailhead at Icicle Ridge trail? Thank you

It's not a hiking trail. It is a road that you can drive in your car.
