Paris Ice Cave
Ice never melts in this small cave located at the bottom of a doline. During the spring, water collects from the surrounding area and passes through the doline making exploration difficult. Late summer and early fall is probably the best time to visit. The entrance is easy to access and a boardwalk stretches across a standing water region near the opening. Ice formations are present in the interior of the cave and some scrambling over rocks is necessary to reach them. Old calcium carbonate deposits are visible on walls, ceilings, and floors. Take a flashlight, sturdy hiking shoes, and a jacket. A hard-hat is always a good idea as well. This cave should be fun for all ages to explore.
National Wildlife Refuge
The best time to visit the National Wildlife Refuge is in the spring and fall.
