Are you one of the many people who wonder if the Ice Caves at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore will happen? Do you want up-to-date information on the Ice Caves?

You can go to the Official Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Facebook page at www.facebook.com/apostleislandsnationallakeshore, the park website www.nps.gov/apis, or by calling the Ice Line at 715-779-3397 extension 3 for updates.
Although the Ice Caves are not currently accessible, the mainland trail is always open to hike out along the top of the sea caves. The trail starts at Meyers Beach Road (A daily parking fee of $5 for vehicles 20 feet or less and $8 for vehicles that are more than 20 feet). It is about a 4 mile round trip hike to the caves. During the winter the trail does get icy from all the people hiking in the snow, so wear boots that have good grips, and a ski pole or hiking stick is always good.
