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
