The drive up was wonderful. I went after the great snow blizzard of 2014/2015. not too bad except the ice on the trail made for difficult footing. I recomend going in early spring to see the waterfalls.

Absolutely beautiful. I went on a day after it had rained, and the forest looked mystical. Sadly there wasn't a waterfall, but the rock itself is really cute. I loved the signs that led to the rock. Really easy hike, totally worth the drive.

We've done this twice with our dog and had a great time. There was no water due to the drought...I'm hoping there will be water the next time we do it!

This was an easy fun trail. Great for beginner hikers. There wasn't any water running through the spring. I'll have to try this trail in the spring sometime.

This is a fun easy hike to take a new hiker on. Its also neat to check out the heart shape. I plan to do it again in the winter when there is water running. Today there was no water running.

Today was my 2nd time up to the heart rock. Would def go again. I always bring my dog and she loves it as well. During the summer there isn't much water in the creek but I'm hoping when we go back In October/November well get to go in the creek. This is a trail along side of the creek, I wouldn't say this is a hike becus your pretty flat/downhill the whole way down to the heart rock. Coming back up is a little uphill but nothing to bad. Heart rock is beautiful. The peacefulness you get from just being in nature is breathtaking. Trail is mostly shaded so it's perfect for summer time. There are a few rocks and stuff you have to climb over to get a good view of the rock but my dog is pretty tough smaller dogs may not like it. I recommend this trail for someone looking for a peaceful, dog and kid friendly hike. It's not very packed when I went around 11am weekday. You can miss the heart rock stay on the trail and when your about 15-20 min in stay to the right and look down.. ❤️
