Take a multi-dimensional journey to the ice caves located in Canyon Creek in Kananaskis Elbow, Alberta. Take a drive to Canyon Creek, which is west of Bragg Creek, and enjoy a scenic ride filled with fields, forests and mountain ranges. Hop off at the parking area and begin your hike, or for those seeking more adventure, grab a bicycle and coast through the hills and valleys to Moose Ridge Mountain. On the edge of Moose Ridge Mountain 500 feet above the trail, an opening appears in the face of the mountain.
