Up through a dark forest the
hiker walks, arriving Heart Lake after passing through Heart
Gap and crossing Digger Creek.
This makes an easy dayhike,
or one can camp overnight at the good campsites next to the
lake. And watch the sunrise the next morning.
This corner of Lassen
National Forest is off the beaten track, and will likely not
be crowded. Dogs are welcome here, and yours may enjoy
fetching sticks thrown into the lake.
