Basin Trail

  Hiked on May 8, 2011.† Began at Rim Junction and headed east and downward along rock face.† Some snow, but certainly passable.† At the top the trail was marked clearly enough, but lost track of the trail about 1/2 mile from the summit and ended up walking off trail all the way to the summit of Hermit Falls.
Says James Shepard-Kegl

Canít wait to get out in nature, if you happen to be in Coos County of New Hampshire, Basin Trail is a great local trail
    for doing a bit of leg stretching. This part of New Hampshire has a great deal of available outdoors activities. A long drive separates Berlin from Basin Trail, but when you spend some time hiking here you will feel like a whole new
In the White Mountains you'll find lots of hiking trails, it's a great hiking area. There's whitewater on Saco River - East Branch for all you adrenaline rush seekers. You'll need more than a day to look at everything Basin Trail has to offer, you can camp at Wild River Campground. Whitewater paddling is not for everybody but if it's for you then we recommend Wild River. Hermit Falls is always fun to check out, and The Basin is right here at Basin
Trail. There's so much to do here at Basin Trail that you need to camp here for a while, Basin Campground and Picnic Area is a good place for that. Looking for some flowing water? Try Bull Brook, and you'll perhaps meet some folks from Center Conway here.
