On Sunday, Sheena and I made an afternoon hike up Heart Mountain. Heart Mountain is located just east of Canmore at Lac Des Arcs. We’ve visited the the area a few times before, often seeing the Falls at Heart Creek. This time however, we decided to go on a little scramble to reach the top. The trek is a little over 2.8 kilometres to the summit from the road — and the fun part is that it’s basically straight up and straight down. The trailhead starts at the transcanada hwy, leading you along a ridgeline to the top. Once at the top, Sheena and I ventured a little further along the ridgeline in search of a nice spot for lunch. It was a great afternoon of exercise and not 30-40 minutes from the Calgary area. We took a few photos of the trek.
