Paris Ice Cave near Bear Lake Idaho
We were up at Bear Lake this weekend and decided to go check out the Paris Ice Cave. The kids loved it, there was still a bit of ice down in the bottom, and a few cracks and crevices to explore.
I'd seen pictures from earlier in the year of huge columns of ice, and foolishly thought this would still be the case. Even though there is ice year round in the cave, it still obviously fluctuates with the heat of the year, and we're in September now.
Getting there, from Garden City Utah to Paris Idaho, it's roughly 20 miles. Then it's 10 miles up the Paris Canyon Road - dirt road. This is easily passable for almost any vehicle. Most of the road is in very good condition. You'll run into a few spots where you'll want to navigate around the rock sticking up @2 or 3 inches, but other than that it was easy for a Toyota Camry.
Here's the parking lot on Google Maps
