Seeley Creek (Heart Rock) Falls Professional Review and Guide
"Hike through a forest wonderland to a splendid and romantic waterfall known as Heart Rock Falls for its distinctive heart-shaped basin. Wildflowers bloom in spring, making it the best time for a visit. The pools below the falls are perfect for swimming and in warmer times make for an inviting dip, but be careful on the slippery rocks. Return via the same trail. Heart Rock will end up becoming a favorite destination, and many who visit the falls return season after season."
--Allen Riedel, Best Easy Day Hikes: San Bernardino (Falcon Guides).
Short, easy hike. Took my 4 year old and he did fine. In shade the whole way. A little tricky to find the heart in the rock. Just listen and look for the waterfall.
Fast, easy trail, with interesting waterfall formation. This trail can be very crowded though, particularly when the campground near the trailhead is in use. I like the trail more in the snow. If you're a rock-climber, just upstream of the waterfall are a couple rocks with bolt anchors at top. The routes are weak and uninteresing however, but if you're doing the hike anyway, bring a short-rope for the climb.
