Nice hike through the forest before reaching the Moro Rock steps. Beautiful views and nature all around.

Hiked up to Heather Lake on January 28th. The trail is easy until you get to hump trail. It is quite a climb up to the lake but well worth it. We passed a few folks taking breaks as the climb was steep. Glad we took our crampons as the trail was a bit icy in the beginning and covered in the snow at the top. The lake was frozen but we enjoyed the view from our hammock :). We hike most weekends and like to climb so this trail was awesome for what we were looking for! Take it easy on the climb up. It may feel like forever reaching the top but you’ll get there and the views are very rewarding

Did this trail last weekend. I only went up to watchtower. Beautiful views. Lots of snow at the watch point so be careful. Bring layers and be prepared for snow. My feet got wet from the snow. Saw fresh bear tracks so they’re out and about.

North Fork Dr is NOT paved all the way. It’s a pretty scary drive. 4-wheel drive recommended. We ended up pulling over and walking the rest of the road to the trail. The trail was gorgeous, although not maintained. The trail is a nice, easy hike along the creek.

Loved this hike! Definately more challenging on the way to Heather lake via hump trail because of the uphill challenge the majority of the way! However, the trail is beautiful and well maintained. I would definately go on the himpbtrail again! Loved it❤️

Challenging but doable! Slow and steady wins the race. Did this in January 2018. Goal was Heather Lake. Made it! Lake was frozen. Hung out with my lovely wife on a hammock and enjoyed the view of Marble Fork Canyon. Look forward to doing it again in spring where I’ll take the Watchtower Trail.

this hike was pretty awesome. Hump trail which is less than 2 miles till heather lake, climbs upto 1150 ft. Watchtower route is closed due to icy conditions. There was very less snow at this time, we had to put spikes near heather lake descending. Snow started at around 9400 ft, below that there were patches of snow.

amazing trail. excellent spot for the sunset and sunrise. The view at top is so worth it.

Did this trail last weekend. Notice! This trail does not go through to the Lakes area during the winter. Incredible view!!

Good easy trail to hike. Did 8 miles out and back in a new psir of boots. Not many parking places at trailhead. But did not see anyone on the trail with me.

Perfect warm up for the trail up the rock!

Great warm up for when you get to the stairs at Moro Rock, or if you're heading toward Hanging Rock!

This was a nice hike - did it in early June and was subdued by clouds/fog towards the end of the climb. No views at the summit, consequently, but bounding down the still-deep snow on the way down was good fun.

One of the best views of my life! I'm 49 now, and I was there at age 15

Great hike even during the winter! Highly recommend crampons

I've done this one in the spring, summer, fall, and snowshoed it in the winter. gorgeous view!

The trail seems to have taken a beating from rain storms. large section has a landslide (picture added) and heavy overgrowth and down trees. Also a lot of bugs this time of year. Recommend for very experienced hikers. Was beyond my skill set and was doing it solo, turned around for safety.

Nice old road now trail. I'm guessing it goes about 12 miles so you can hike as far as you like. We normally do 3 hours up, rest, and return.
