Hero: Heart Lake
small-sr Icon

Traveling along the eastern edge of a spectacular high alpine lake, Heart Lake is a fantastic trail for dispersed camping, fishing, and awe-inspiring views of the famous Flat Top Mountain Range. The trail travels between Coffee Pot Road and Blair Mountain and offers numerous campsite options, both lake-side and tucked between the trees. The northern half of the trail, connecting to Coffee Pot Road, is fairly rough, with small ruts and exposed flat rocks the size of dinner plates. This section of trail travels past a small, remote alpine lake with a couple of campsites and will require a high clearance vehicle to access. The southern half of the trail, traveling directly next to Heart Lake and connecting to Blair Mountain, is a well-maintained dirt road with many campsite options ranging in size from large group sites to small single tent sites. The trail's southern half is suitable for any vehicle and camp setup, including passenger cars, large trailers, and RVs.
