Description

The loop is best done starting up the steep ridge to the summit of Heart Mountain. There are some technical and steep rock sections that are nicer to climb up. This gets the elevation out of the way quickly, and the gentle ridge after the summit is a great break before the steep descent trail back into the woods. The return trail and initial Heart Creek crossing saw damage in 2013 and therefore may be slightly different then mapped. WATCH FOR SIGNAGE.

Flora & Fauna

Bears frequent the valleys and mountains in this area. Be bear-aware and run in groups.
