Trail Information

The Ice Cave Trail winds its way along Porter Creek and the south side of Scott Reservoir before connecting to Blue Ridge Trail. Midway along the trail is the Ice Cave. The cave is really a lava tube. The name “Ice Cave” probably came fro the constant flow of cool air (about 52 degrees F) leaving the cave.
From Lakeside:
Travel south on State Highway 260. Turn left on Porter Mountain Road (Forest Road 45) for 1 mile. The trailhead is on the right.
