The official Heart Creek trail is a short walk weaving back and forth along the trail to a small waterfall.
Beyond the waterfall, the creek can be followed farther back to another couple waterfalls and a small canyon.
The trail is fairly simple, but has quite a variety of wildflowers.

Small lower waterfall.

The creek flows much higher during periods of runoff - it has scoured quite the patterns.
