Beginning at the Basin Pond parking area,
follow the trail along the south side of the
pond for 0.3 miles to an old logging road.
Continue on the Basin Trail toward Rim
Junction. At 1.0 mile a side trail leads left
to Hermit Falls, a picturesque cascade.
This side of the loop rejoins the Basin
Trail at 1.2 miles. The trail crosses a wide
brook and climbs steeply to the top of the
cliff overlooking the Basin. At Rim
Junction, follow the Basin Rim Trail 0.1
miles north to a short path out to the great
views south and east.
