The Heart and Pearl lake trail descends from the stateline trail south of Superior and is a great backcountry ride with amazing views. Descending tends to be steep and rocky, with sharp switchbacks, especially near the top. Then big rock gardens and boulders lower down and along the lakes.

Access Info

Legality of riding the stateline trail is questionable- the ID side is recommended wilderness and managed as such, in Montana though, riding is fine. The Heart lake trail starts about 5mi south of Hoodoo pass.
