About Heart Rock & Seely Creek Falls

Heart Rock Trail is an easy hike for all ages in San Bernardino County that leads to a small waterfall and a perfectly-shaped heart indention in one of the large boulders.  The heart shape was created from water hitting the rock over thousands of years.

This hike can get very crowded so I recommended getting an early start if you want to beat the scores of people.  Oddly enough, we went on New Years day and arrived around 11am and had the place to ourselves.  I was really surprised!  As we were hiking back to the car an hour later all the people began arriving.

While you’re in the area, make sure to check out the Crestline Hang Glider launch nearby!

Since we went in winter it was pretty darn cold (high 30’s) and the trail was lush and green.  Dress accordingly for what time of year you go! There was a decent flow of water but I bet in later winter after a lot of good rain and snow it can flow pretty hard!

This is a short but lush hike.  The air was so fresh!
