Ice is in this cave year round as water runs down into the cave from the surrounding hills from a small brook. It is accessible when the water dries out around the middle of July. There are two entrances to the cave that lead downward into the cave. It is very cold and contains ice even during the hottest summers.
Although the Paris Ice Cave is not developed, a visit is not very dangerous. An easy to follow track through the cave goes through the cave. Wear warm clothes and bring sturdy shoes and lamps.
The Paris Ice Cave is not a developed area but it was fun to go and see them. They are called ice caves because they have ice in them year round. Part of the cave has collapsed. There is a short area that you hike through and then the area that is open to the air. The road into this area was not bad at first but as we got higher into the mountains, we encountered snow and ice on the road. Our station wagon did okay but it would have been better if it would have been dry roads and no snow. And, if you go, watch out for the cows on the road. Yes, there was an area with ice!
