Great trail we went with our 2.5 yo that was able to do the bulk of the trail and we we're able to carry her the rest of the way.

Simply beautiful

loved it. definitely not for kids! too many places where they could fall.

It is a 4 when water is in the creek it would be a 5. I would say it is easy to moderate vs just easy. For a first hike for children they definitely need to watch their step.

Very pretty.

Beautiful, fun and easy hike. There was no water when we went on Sept 23rd, but was still such a nice hike. A little bit of an incline on the way back out, but my husband and I are always taking our kids (2 months, 3, 5, and 7 years old) out for hikes, lake/river swimming and fishing, 4 wheeling and camping trips so they didn't have to hard of a time. We just let them go their own pace. We lucky when it came to other hikers. The parking was great and we seen maybe 4 other party's hiking. We defiantly want to go again.

Very easy hike. There’s a lot of shade so no matter what time of day you go it’s perfect. There were also a lot of butterflies everywhere you looked.
The heart rock was cute too :)

This was a beautiful trail! I did get lost getting there at first due to missing the sharp left turn to the road that gets you to the trail. We parked right in front of the camp sign but there’s two additional parking areas closer to the actual trail. My specialness went tru a closed gate and it was a nice and easy walk up with a paved trail (FYI). Unfortunately no water, but the rocks were cool to look at. We went back tru the actual trail which I LOVED due to the scenery but I had to take a few breaks since the air was thinner. I’d definitely recommend this trail!

This trail was awesome, very easy trail. We got there in the even. Enough time to hike the trail see the heart ❤️ rock and explore the trail surrounding. Dried out stream but still worth the drive.

Brought out full grocery sack of trash and a full backpack full of trash.
Please take your trash with you.
No water in falls, but overall good hike.

Good to hike early spring after some rain. Just down from Heart rock kids can slide on a rock into some cold water.

Went earlier today and it didn’t disappoint me except for the fact there wasn’t any water, but the hike and scenery was amazing. The kids loved it too. Definitely going back but when there’s water.

very nice ran into three bears.

on Heart Rock Trail

Walked Heart rock trail on 7/21/18. Pretty shady. Pretty easy short trail to walk. You have to do a little climbing to see the heart rock. There was water running when we went in July. Unfortunately, there is some graffiti around the heart rock area. So sad.

Fairly uncrowded on the weekday. Nice and relaxing. Fresh air!!! It’s hard to find the beginning of the trail so I suggest not driving there on your own on the first time especially since GPS is spotty. It’s easy to miss the heart rock cuz you have to sort of look over a cliff to find it. Lol. Otherwise it’s a pretty cool site to see.

This is such a great hike for the family! My kids really enjoyed it and took in all the beautiful, lush landscape that surrounded us. We will definitely be back!

This was a pleasantly surprising hike! It is great to get the family out and about into nature. There are plenty or rock formations, brooks, and tree roots for young ones to climb and explore. Most of the trail is paved but there are places you can go off the beaten path. Depending on the day you will have heavy traffic or light traffic. Either way, it's worth taking the family to see the heart in the rock. I do caution, some vandals did tag rocks with graffiti.

Good enough

Nice shaded trail but steep to get to falls. Hard to find trails or where to park.

Nice short hike with some water to get your feet wet. Family friendly with lots of shaded areas to relax.

The trail was nice, and had a lot of shadows. But the entrance was hard to find. You have to go in front of the camp, then follow the pavement until you see a dirt road.

Lots of shade, nice breeze and beautiful. Trail is easy at first but steep towards end. A lot of people. . Not enough water for waterfall in July. Didn’t see the heart rock - don’t know if you have to climb down rocks to see it.

Easy trek with our dog. Some spots required a little extra footwork around trees where the sand was slippery, but neither kids nor adults were phased by this. The temp was perfect for the summertime- breezy and cool. To get to the trailhead, you’ll drive through a camp parking lot over a very shallow creek (at least when we were there) and make a couple windy turns before reaching an open space for several cars to park. The trail is covered in shade with lots of wildflowers and a little stream below the path. You can actually get to the heart in the picture if you climb down from the trail and climb up the rocks.

nice view took my 3 year old he loved it.

Lots of people and groups, kids, somewhat scenic trail. The closet parking area is indicated. We went a bit farther than the main tourist attraction, but wasn't worth it. Scrambling on rocks, cliffs somewhat fun.

Easy, fun, family trail

Why are people so messy?!!! So much trash that it makes my heart hurt. Great little hike. Go a little beyond and the stream trickles down a cool slide. Hung out with a hummingbird for a bit. Too many people on the rocks.

We each brought a trash bag and started collecting litter along the trail

Great family hike.

It’d be a beautiful trail but due to the easy access it’s a local teen hang out which I can ignore, most are nice enough. I was too preoccupied by all the trash left behind to really appreciate my walk. Instead I made a makeshift sack with a towel left behind and collected as many water/Gatorade bottles as I could hold (even crushed and condensed.) they were all over! Floating in the little pools, scattered about the rocks, down the hills, along the trail. Came across a field trip or party of kids with some adults and one of the kids threw a stick toward my dog who was on leash minding her own business, none of the adults said any thing. Besides that there are some steep hills and slippery rocks, so be prepared.

Great short hike. Family fun with 3 kids ranging toddler to teen. Lots to see along the way. Ladybug season, they were swarming, super cool.
