    Kara Taylor reviewed Heather Lake Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Completed 6/11. Enjoyed the variety in scenery on the trip. Trail makeup also varies- forest bed, crushed rock, larger rocks/rockfalls, tree roots, waterfalls. Quite a few big steps up/down. Was extremely muddy on later portion. Very wet and was slippery, particularly coming down. Saw about 5-6 other parties. Pretty lake. Some bugs on trail toward end and around lake but not bad at all.

    Completed June 10. Just a bit of snow here and there on trail for first couple miles. With about a mile left, snow varies in depth but is still significant on route. Traction helpful and definitely poles or walking stick. Snow is unstable in places and melting and I stepped through to water running under or gaps, a few times. Takes time and caution to navigate but the route was usually apparent and there are a few pink flags tied on branches as markers. Lake partially frozen. A surprise close encounter with a mountain goat on descent. Saw 3 parties total on ascent up and none on descent.
    Road and parking clear and good condition.
