ABOUT THIS OUTING:
Join Hiking With Pride for an evening exploring the Ice Castles at Dillon!

Ice Castles is an award-winning frozen attraction located in six cities across North America. The experience is built using hundreds of thousands of icicles hand-placed by professional ice artists. The castles include breathtaking LED-lit sculptures, frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, fountains and much more.

You can simply walk through, or chose to crawl, climb & slide into unique areas to explore. (Snow pants recommended!)

PHOTOS are from Matt & Terry’s visit in March 2019.

KID FRIENDLY – bring a sled/toboggan rather than a stroller for little ones
