A rocky narrow downhill (or punishing climb) connecting the Wheeler Creek and Wheeler Canyon trails.

Swingin Johnson

Overview

Description

From Wheeler Canyon trail (starting at Pineview Dam), continue south approximately one mile to a wooden sign. Icebox Canyon descends sharply right to the watercourse, crossing a wooden bridge.

From Wheeler Creek Trail (Snowbasin Lot 2), continue east just past the junction with Middle Fork. The Icebox Canyon turnoff is a couple hundred feet past this, and is marked with wooden signage.

This is a fun shortcut - it has rock gardens, tree obstacles, decent exposure, some tight hairpins, and some extremely steep sections - all following a densely forested watercourse. It's only a mile, but it's a fun mile.

This trail is Best enjoyed as a Downhill section. It is a Very fun and challenging section with Hairpin turns, tree and rock obstacles. Have fun and be careful. The difficulty rating is well earned but also why it’s such a great ride. Jul 20, 2016
