The Heart Lake is a brief .3 mile trail that runs from Heart Lake to a junction with the Lake Fork Trail – Trail #82.
Trail Condition: Excellent
Many maps do not recognize this small connector trail as an official trail, but for those that it is the final leg of the route to Heart Lake from Cabresto Lake.
From the signed junction with the Lake Fork Trail – Trail #82, go left to follow the Heart Lake Trail steeply uphill. When you are about 100 yards from the crest of the hill past which is the lake, you will hopefully see a small trickle in the outlet stream. To avoid extra trips down this steep slope, fill up on water here.
The trail is wide and easy to follow for its entire (very short) length.
