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
