Heather trail is a rolling gentle trail with an average 3% grade. It skirts a nice little dropoff near the trail junction to Three Brothers mountain.
It's a long way down to the meadows and forests to the North of the park.
The hike to Heather Trail, on July 2nd, took us into very high country. The hike itself is very easy - most of the altitude is gained by driving up to the trailhead (@ 6,500ft). This is a long hike over two mountain passes, through spectacular meadows and dwarf trees
