“A varied and scenic trail along Bass Creek that leads to an alpine lake.
— Zachary Falkner
At ~2.5 miles, you cross into Wilderness area.
River/Creek — Views — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife
This is a difficult but beautiful trail that will bring runners past many scenic features, including a pond, a waterfall, meadows and vast views of the high canyon walls and peaks and climbs up to a dammed alpine lake. Expect sections of steep and rugged sections of trail.
The trail is on the longer side, but grades are manageable in all but a few short sections.
