The map is a compiled list of areas known to experience ice safety issues throughout the winter. Some areas are unsafe due to the river flow, others due to springs. Follow all DNR safety precautions when accessing the ice and keep monitoring for changing conditions. Ice depths vary throughout McDill during the winter, and no ice is safe ice, but the intent of the map is to help inform those accessing the ice where to avoid traveling.
