Bragg Creek, Alberta

Hike to Bragg Creek Ice Cave

4.3 Miles Total - 5879.3 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Rayne Grein

Explore the unique cave filled with beautiful ice features year round!

Also known as Moose Mountain Ice Cave, Canyon Creek Ice Cave and Ing Mine.

The cave is located on the west side of Moose Ridge andhas a huge entrance, it is approximately1,600 ft. in depth.

Take Highway 22 past Bragg Creek, continue on the 66 towards Moose Mountain.  Turn off at Canyon Creek Road and drive about 300m to the gates. Park at the Canyon Creek parking area a short distance past the road for Moose Mountain. You can then walk or bike for about 6 kms (Would recommend biking- it was much quicker). Near the end of the road there’s a noticeable path on the right side- follow this path/ switchbacks to the beginning of the cave. Walking up to the cave you’ll instantly feel the cold breeze- bring layers! All year there is an incredible pillar of ice formed in the middle of the cave called the pillar of darkness.

Really Sweet Cave

We really enjoyed exploring the cave. We decided to bike along the road portion which I would highly recommend. Otherwise, be prepared to walk a long stretch of road.

Great views, cool cave

Super easy hike however, because the access road is closed you're left with a long walk down an old fire road before you get to the Trail head. I would recommend bringing a bike for this section of the trip!
