The Ingalls Creek Trail The trailhead is about a quarter mile further down Ingalls Creek Road (heading west-south-west) from the ICE entrance, just before the gated bridge.
Online Information about Ingalls Creek Trail:
The creek is primarily glacial run-off, so it is very cold, even during the summer months, with areas of strong rapids. Swimming is generally not recommended. Kayaking is possible certain times of the year, for the well-prepared, skilled, and adventurous! (The water can be quite...exhiliarating...to say the least, especially in late spring/early summer!)
A short drive away, there are many other opportunities for:
- Hiking (everything from easy strolls to major expeditions)
- Kayaking & Water Rafting
- Rock climbing
- Mountain biking
- Shopping & Dining
- ...and more than we can list here!
