Trail shared by Scott Todd

An alternate route to Ice Cave Creek Trail along the ridge.

Scott Todd

Features Views · Wildlife

Description

Cut immediately right as soon as you reach the Lower Reservoir (at the dam) when following Balanced Rock Rd. The trail follows a seasonal creek, about 100 feet to the east (the right side as you ascend) and is a bit steep for 1/4 mile. At that point, the old trail scrambles over a boulder but a new option cuts left (down the slope toward creek) and reconnects in only 300 feet. Then it is a gentle climb, with some solitude compared to Balanced Rock Rd., until the last 1000 feet kick up to ridge where you'll come to an intersection with the Sundance Mountain Trail and reach the end of this trail.
