This is a beautiful hike! Great for families, kids, and puppies!
The trail starts out fairly flat, with a bit of an incline toward the end. The trail is very shaded until you get to the very end, where you spill out into an open, rocky area with a view of the Big Four Ice Caves.
Not only are you staring up at snowcapped mountains, but there is a large ice cave ahead of you with rocks surrounding the floors and waterfalls gushing out of the rocks all around. Also just a friendly warning, the area has an avalanche warning, so please stay relatively quiet. As we neared the caves, we could see that it was dripping since it had rained earlier. We ventured inside and said our “oohs” and “ahhs”. It really is a sight you have to see for your own eyes.
Unfortunately we didn’t see any yetis, but if you go on a hot day (like we did), you’ll appreciate the coolness of the ice caves and forget all about yetis!
