This was a great trail, and was are first. The trail itself had some downed trees blocking the path at some points but were easy to get around. Walking the path was easy and both my wife and I have bad knees. Hart rock is a little hard to find if your not paying attention but well worth it if you do.
Went with a Friend who had already been there.... So not sure if it's easy to locate.
It's a great hike for beginners. It's about 2 miles, not too much incline, and shaded areas. The hike down the the waterfall is the hardest part. The trail to the left is easier then the trail on the right. The right is more like rock climbing down and the one on the left is just going down a hill.
The Falls aren't big but really nice and of course the Heart Shaped Rock is the reason to go.
Check Instagram post during the winter. There was still patches of snow on the trail. And a friend went last week and there was snow at the Falls.
If the 2 mile hike isn't enough, go down the street and do the Lake Gregory loop for another 3 miles.
what a beautiful place to hike. it was short distance of a hike, but it was worth it. at the time we visited the place, there was no one around, we enjoyed the quietness & peaceful sound that surrounds this place. be prepare to drive up to almost 5000 elevation getting this this place.
This was such a sweet little hike. It was very short so we used our extra energy to play on the rocks a little bit-highly recommend this if you're in the area! It was kind of difficult to find because the signs aren't super clear. Once you get to the parking lot you will walk by a pool and use the dirt trail. Don't use the paved path.
Kelli S. on Heart Rock Trail
Short, family friendly hike. Waterfall was beautiful after the rain in January lately. You can hike the trail next to the stream or there is also a paved road just above it that will take you to the heart rock.
