Beautiful hike. Hiked from Heart Lake down to South Entrance. The section from HL to Sheridan Lake is amongst the most beautiful parts of the park. Lots of bear sign, saw one grizzly on South Boundary trail n ar the scree field. Don't pass up this hike even though the guide book says it isn't that great.
