The Heart Rock trail is a short (1/2 mile) trail that begins near the entrance Camp Seely (featured in the Disney movie “The Parent Trap”) in the San Bernardino mountains near Crestline, California. It’s an easy hike that is suitable for all ages that follows Seeley Creek North to Heart Rock overlook. From the overlook, you can look down at the 20-foot Heart Rock Falls next to a Heart Shaped hole in the rock. You can also venture down to the heart itself.
The hole in the rock was carved by the water from Seeley Creek over many years. During certain times of the year, the water flows through the heart itself.
Many people pass Heart Rock without seeing it on the trail. After about 1/2 mile along the trail, you’ll be headed downhill and see a small pond right next to the trail, then the trail starts heading uphill. At the to of the hill, there’s a fallen tree (see photo). That tree is pointing toward the Heart Rock overlook. You’ll have to work your way down a short rock cliff to the giant rock. You’ll be able to see Heart rock from the top or the sides of that giant rock.
Other places along the trail:
There are a few nice ponds along the trail where you can stick your feet in the water or have a picnic. One of them is about 50 yards before Heart Rock. It’s right near the trail right before the final hill getting to Heart Rock.
