I love the clean and simple look of Trello's main view where I could see all the lists and cards clearly on a board. As I have been getting more deeply into Trello, each of my cards has a bunch of little icons for stuff like checklist, comments, subscribe, etc. The main view of my board is looking more and more cluttered!

Is there any way to go into settings and hide those icons for that view?

Simple answer: No.

Expanded answer: The very nature of Trello is to be an organizational system. The main board is the overview that lets you quickly see the general status/information about any task/assignment/etc. The badges and colored labels are intentional to be visible markers for each card's individual status. This means that if you remove these markers you kind of circumvent a primary purpose of the system.
