The Lake Superior Ice Caves
Last Updated: 2/25/2013
Picture this: A frozen lake meets the base of a cliff where giant pillars of ice majestically hang, extending into every crevasse and cavern. That’s the scene at the Lake Superior ice caves, and it is definitely a Wisconsin winter spectacle you have to see to believe.
The easiest way to get to the caves is by hiking from Myers Beach Road. Along the trip, you’ll see an arctic-like landscape featuring large pillars of ice where waterfalls were literally frozen in their paths. The moderate, one-mile trek east leads to red cliffs and caverns with imprints of the waves crashing into them. The amount of ice on Lake Superior usually peaks around mid-March so there really isn’t a better time to walk on water!
Hiking boots will be necessary for this journey and be sure to proceed with caution. Double check ice conditions before venturing out. If conditions aren’t favorable, you can still view the caves from the ridgeline. Just make sure you don’t leave the camera at home because this is a photo-op you’ll want to record.
