This is a wonderful hike and my family's favorite so far.....
When we got to heart lake a couple told us to walk a little farther to a more scenic lookout. So glad we did.... an amazing view of Lake Mary. The majestic mountains covered in snow, sound of waterfall in distance and beautiful aspen trees are some of the many memories we carry with us from heart lake trail.

The beginning 3/4? mile of incline hiking was a little challenging for my family of non-hikers. My mom 70, son 11, niece 7. We almost turned back, despite the beautiful view of the snow covered mountains, rushing sound of the waterfall or a creek. Luckily, we kept going and was greeted with a beautifully calm lake with snow for playing on the side. The hike back was fun because it was all downhill :). This hike is fun for children because you can stop at the mining camps.

Great short in and out hike with spectacular views. Aspens along trail already turning to fall colors made for terrific photos. Nice cool breeze in October kept the walk pleasant. Only one hill on way to lake, after that it's all downhill

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.
