Great hike and views. Arrive early to get the best spots around one of the two lakes. Hammocks are quite popular and worth bringing along.

We camped at the first little lake just off Rogers Pass Trail below Heart Lake. It was immensely beautiful, but the entire campsite was littered with broken glass. I picked up a heaping handful of shards, and also cleaned up a pile that someone else had made at the base of a tree. There was still so much more that we weren't able to gather. :( No way can anyone chill at this campsite barefoot, despite the otherwise soft and inviting dirt. Newsflash: good beer comes in cans now.

Beautiful trail, rocky with lots of roots. Mostly shady until you reach the lakes. 8.8 miles from the car. Stunning views at the top. Still lots of flowers and waterfalls.

Beautiful hike with great views! We came at night to camp off the trail then stayed at Heart Lake the second night. Not to many people there thank goodness! Be sure to set up camp behind trees so the wind doesn't get you!

Really beautiful mixed terrain trail. The wild flowers were amazing. Great views.

Fun hike, made it out right as torrential rain came in

Arrived Friday and left Saturday, hardly any people around. The wildflowers are beautiful and still in bloom! Camped at rogers lake, and heart lake is 15 minutes uphill from camp, so hiked that in the morning. Beautiful views! Winter park is visible from the other side of the continental divide, you can also see moffet tunnel from there where the cars are parked too.

Wildflowers were amazing today. Would have been even better had the sun not been hiding behind clouds, but still a gorgeous day. Trail was really muddy in a few spots, so good boots are a good idea. Creek is running fast and beautiful drops. Loved the views looking down at lakes from trail up to divide. Great workout, great views, great flowers. And not too crowded.
