Great fishing Jul 25, 2011
Heart lake offers great fishing, great views, hreat hiking, and lots of thermal features. I recently camped at the most SW campsite on the lake. The hike in led us through sections from of burnt forrest from the 1988 fire, but new growth provides some shade along the trail. As you hike around Mt. Sherridan up to an overlook the lake comes into view. As you hike down to the lake thermal features are all around, but no escape from the sun. Once you reach the lake get the bugspray ready, its beautiful, but buggy. From here there are 5 or 6 campsites before you get to the southwestern most campsite. Its aboiut 2.5 miles from the point you can see the lake to the site. All along the lake you walk thriugh wildflowers and a few more thermal features. Once at the site, you will set up camp on a small hill looking out over the lake. There is a cove where the campsite is that provides amazing fishing and dinner.
