Big Heart Lake, WA

Big Heart Lake, WA

We were going to attempt a different, potentially less crowded, trail in the same area but weren't excited by how bushwhacky it looked right from the start, so we opted for our backup plan of West Fork Foss River and the lakes above it.

Very cool trail that takes you past a bunch of lakes, each one a bit prettier but also a bit harder to get to. Most of the sites around the lower lakes were totally full, so we hiked without lunch as far as we could to get ahead of the crowd. We got as far as Big Heart Lake before we were too tired/hungry to keep hiking, and were delighted to find an awesome spot with easy access to the freezing cold lake.
