Yellow springs in winter|

Brian brought maps of that area too but we thought we'd wait for the ice to melt before going out there. It was pretty treacherous still the day we hiked Glen Helen. There's still a lot of the Glen yet to see, actually.
I should have said that, yes, you don't want to try going down into the gorge with ice on the ground. Though the trail at the top of the gorge is safe even with ice, since it's level and has rails, and the icicles hanging off the gorge walls are beautiful. The first quarter-mile or so of the trail from the parking lot in Clifton is handicap-accessible and snow-safe.
