09:57 Clayton LakeIceberg Lake岔路,座標N39.88728° W105.67312°,海拔10,024/3,055公尺,距登山口2.3/3.7公里;

由於Clayton Lake沒被Forest Service推薦,登山路徑也沒在維修,所以此岔路極不明顯,正位在一座沒有扶手之兩根原木橋與一座單面扶手之小橋之間,由於少登山客造訪,路徑極不明顯易錯過,右岔往Clayton LakeIceberg Lake,多年前走過兩次,直行過單面扶手之小橋往Rogers Pass LakeHeart Lake,取直行。

 

10:23 抵第二座橫跨小溪上有扶手之小橋後約30公尺右側有兩棵大杉木,中間一條小徑,入口處有一大倒木橫著,此為直上Heart Lake的小徑,座標N39.88195° W105.67370°,海拔10,205/3,110公尺,距登山口2.8/4.5公里;2010年登Heart Lake時下山係走此路下山,但無路徑需自行找路,取左直行上山。

 

11:08 抵第三座橫跨小溪上無扶手之小橋,座標N39.87170° W105.68052°,海拔10,712/3,265公尺,距登山口3.7/5.95公里;

橋右有小瀑布,過小橋後步道坡度有點陡,還算好走。

11:29 抵一小溪,座標N39.87062° W105.68388°,海拔10,938/3,334公尺,距登山口4.0/6.43公里;小溪之前約30公尺立有一面“Camping prohibited within 100 feet of water”之露營區限制木牌,小溪上以簡單四、五根樹幹橫跨其上,過小溪後續沿小溪右岸往上行。
