The people down here are definitely the people you want to ask if you have any hiking or woods outing type question. They really do know what they're talking about.

Having been a volunteer here for the Adirondack Mountain Club and the 46ers, for over 35 years, I wonder what areas some of the other reviewers are talking about.

This is privately owned so there is a fee to enter, but the trails are well maintained and the view is great. There is even a small glass bottom overlook! Don't miss the nature trail after you leave the falls. It is a mile, but is not too difficult and doesn't seem that long.

Helpful...as usual. Has almost everything you need if you forgot something at home for the hike. Not open late...check hours before you leave for the hike.

The information center offers lots of essentials to hikers entering and exiting the trails at Heart Lake. Also for campers in and around the Adirondak Loj. The staff and mountain stewards were all so pleasant and helpful and the prices for drinks and snacks was reasonable.
