"The relatively flat hike to the Debsconeag Ice Caves passes through a mature evergreen forest full of huge boulders. The hike would be worth doing even without the ice caves at its end. The trail splits at the end, leading to a rocky overlook of First Debsconeag Lake, the ice caves, and a steep descent to the lakeshore. Be sure to bring a flashlight to explore the boulders for caves; many have ice in them year-round."
