SUNDAY :)  Map

on Heart Creek Trail

1 day ago

Did this with my 3 and 5 year old, who are taller than most. They loved it- it was just challenging enough for them to make it feel like an “adventure.” A beautiful hike for all ages. There’s an extra bit of the trail at the end that leads up to the top of the cliff. This was too much for the kids but easy for adults. Worth the view!

Busy therefore not ideal for me. Pretty views but not very interesting to hike. All flat. All hill. All rocks. Then repeat in reverse order.

This is an awesome hike. Lots to see, a challenge to get though the gorge but fun. Your going to get wet so bring dry shoes!

Great hiking trail for families and dogs!! Beautiful spot!

The trail was not easy to follow. We used the app maps.me and could find it really quick. Beautiful view when you arrive near the glacier. The first part to the waterfall is easy, the second part to the glacier is a good moderate one.

9 and 7 yo were overjoyed with the water features and scrambling available at their level. I carried a 3yo until the first waterfall, and she was able to get up to the notch on her own... then back on the back for the way down.

This hike was ok, you will start off on a mountain biking trail for the first half of the hike then turn left onto the hiking trail. Be prepared to scramble ... pretty fun! :)
The view from the top (should be flat) is amazing! You’ll love it. Hike is short, took us about 1.5hrs to get up. Oh.. ps we saw a marmot, fox and an elk.

Nice easy way to spend a morning. Gets super busy with small families and dogs but still peaceful and beautiful.

Good hike if you’re short on time. Very scenic and enough of an incline to get a work out in. When you get to Elbow lake, walk through the entire campground and passed the food lockers and the trail will reappear. The glacier itself is pretty underwhelming but the views along the way are great. For the length of drive it takes to get there I would recommend hiking to Tombstone Lake which is accessible from the same starting point.

One of my favourite hikes. Use leather gloves when climbing around boulders. Lots of fossils.

Much more scenic than I expected based on other reviews, however today in early July 2018 it was very windy and cold between the 3rd and 4th kms as we ascended to the glacier. We were not prepared for the drastic temperature change and were quite cold. A learned lesson for future hikes.

Delightful from start to finish.

So fun. Narrow canyon was different and makes this memorable

Our familu had a blast on this rock scramble hike. it was quite challenging and we had to find ways around the narrow rock gorge but we loved finding our way through. Beautiful views, rocks and floral/fawna.

30 minute gravel road to trailhead with condition of road being good. Trail is well marked and ample room for parking. Most of the hike is through forested canopy with little to see although very relaxing as the traffic is low. Top of the trail had very nice view of the valley below jumpingpound mountain. At the summit, there’s a nice and open area where you can move around off the path a bit with freedom. Overall the hike is through consistent elevation, decent view at the top, and drive is quite scenic. In total took us about 2.5-3 hours.

Our family made most of this trip. at the end to go up to the very top, there was a lot of loose stone and it was quite steep, so we didn't get to the top. We still enjoyed it and would recommend to others.

Amazing views! Fairly easy hike

Very pretty hike. Creek, flowers, little waterfalls, neat forested areas. Nice and easy, but still fun. Very busy though.

Decided to try Arethusa after finding out at Barrier that Ptarmigan was closed due to bear activity. This was our first time on the Arethusa trail and it turned out to be a great decision. Quick through the trees into open meadows at the treelike and above. Beautiful streams running down from multiple cirques, some of which were challenging to cross. The trail up the east cirque was kind of tough to find with the snow and boulder field but it was great fun. I wasn't dressed for the weather so we turned back at the cirque when it was +2 and snowing. There are lots of possibilities for other hikes in the area below Storm Mountain and Arethusa including scrambles up the scree slopes. Great alternative to Ptarmigan/Pocaterra.

My family of 6 did this last summer with kids ages ranging from 7-14. They had a blast in the slot canyon creek walk and in the little areas of water where they could slide in and cool off.
But (the reason for 3 stars) then we walked a long way on a dry hot creek bed and unless you loop to another hike it just ends with no real view. I would recommend just having fun up to where the creek ends and enjoy that, nothing exciting past.

Great hike to bring your kids on!

Great little hike, heavily trafficked.

Beautiful trail

Took 26 members of our hiking club in today. Many had never been there before & were just amazed with huge smiles. What a beautiful spot.

Moderately hard. Trail is not marked at all so difficult to follow and easy to go off trail. Bush-wacking required. Glacier at the top is very cool. Amazing views.

Went up to Black Prince Lakes (a ways past Warspite lake and cascade) last year in August. It was a great, varied trail. The first part, to the Warspite lake, is very gentle, no issues and in forest. Past that it is steep and farther than you think to get to the lakes, since you must go up past the cascade, into a bowl, and up another ridge (to your right hand side coming into the bowl) to see the lakes.
The trek was worth it though, as the water was cool and reflective. Earlier in the season I'm sure you could even jump in!

Good for beginners and kids. It was cool to see the rock climbers off to the side. Other than that, not much for views on this hike. Make sure you have hiking boots for this one as there are lots of places that you can hurt your feet or roll an ankle.

Easy and pretty. Did in May and was still some snow around. Micro spikes were helpful - the snow was quite hard at this point so it was slippery.

So this was a really fun, and not super demanding trail. The views were spectacular the whole way but it was extra nice because my husband and I talked and joked around on the trail and had the best day! We weren’t tired or out of breath, we just strolled and hung out. We parked at the mt shark heli pad so it was a bit further. The spring at the end is nuts! I can’t wait to come back with my bike

Great hike up to a glacier. We spotted pika, mountain goat, deer, and a marmot. Found the downward trip a little challenging in the late afternoon as melt had created slippery muddy areas. Poles recommended.
