Trout to Copper to Little Heart
This is one of the hardest hikes I've done. The first one and a half miles to Trout Lake are easy enough for children, after that, things change. The trail becomes very rugged, and you'll accomplish a 1,900 foot elevation gain in two miles. There are stream crossings that require sure footing across wet rocks and logs. I recommend hiking poles for greater stability. It was worth it though. Trout Lake is a great place to spend a day or camp for the night, although there isn't a lot of room for many people. Copper and Little Heart lakes are classic alpine lakes formed by snow melt collecting at the bottom of the surrounding mountains. If you've got the stamina for it, head for Little Heart Lake, you won't be disappointed.
