Go in the morning to beat the heat of summer, but go in the afternoon light if you want to see beautiful colors on the monument and rainbows in the falls

on Heart Lake Trail

hiking

Uphill for the start but really worth the effort. Once at the lake go to the right up hill a little more to a plateau for an even more beautiful view of the valley and waterfall. We got caught in a light hailstorm and rain but all still worth the hike.

Not an easy hike for beginners. Hiked all the way to Duck Lake. Took about 6 hours and 8 miles total. There are multiple lakes that you see on the way to Duck Lake. Beautiful view at the end but plan a whole day for this!

on The Hot Tub

off road driving

The Hot Tub is in the middle of nowhere, on a dirt road, we could not get to it with our car ( the road was to bad) so we walked for 20 minutes to it on the dirt road.
If you have a 4x4 or a taller car ( ex jeep) you can drive almost next to it, we were afraid to damage the car.
The other user is right, there is always somebody camped right next to it.

A nice and short trail to incredible scenery. The lake feels very isolated from the world and stunningly beautiful.

on Rainbow Falls via Devils ...

We only did the hike from Red's, Easy hike from there, although trees are burnt out from forest fire years earlier, could get warm mid-day, Stairs to the bottom of the falls were closed, wish we would have known, would given a higher rating if we could have gotten down to the river!

on Convict Lake Loop Trail

hiking

I started on the south side of the lake, went around the back, then turned left and went quite a ways up the canyon. It was beautiful. I didn't make it to Lake Mildred, but probably got at least three quarters of the way there. The trail pretty much follows Convict Creek the whole way. I'd like to come back and make it to one of the lakes.

Tremendous! The views were outstanding. 3 hours up to the lake at a good pace and 3 hours back. Tired at the end and enjoyed a nice dinner and wine!

Trail was good. A lot of sand or fine gravel was part of the trail. The trees, mountains and then the lake view were well worth the effort, especially for a desert tat like me.
