Wow one of the most scenic hikes I’ve ever been. The observation deck has an incredible view of the cascading waterfalls.

Visited Bassi today. Beautiful as always. Not much water but what there was was clear and crisp.

The campground is only open in the summer. In the off-season there is a gate about five miles away from the trail that prevents you from driving to trail head.

Beautiful but tons of little bugs in your face. Bug repellent is a must!

This is my close to home favorite. Easy and keeps you hiking when you do not have much time.

Very easy and relaxing hike.

Great trail, easy enough for kids. My twin 6 year old boys made it all 5 miles in and out. Not much shade so dress light in summer and bring plenty of water. Only saw one other human on the trails.

Really like it. It's not that easy but during the hiking there is a flowing water next us. And there is a waterfall in the end to play in the water. One of the best trail!!

Absolutely worth going to the top, but there are also lovely swimming pools along the way if you take the left side (West of the creek).
The Alltrails map starts on an unnecessary hill. Park in the trailhead parking then take the road West to cross the creek as it enters Bass Lake.

The majority shaded trail is very easy with a few steep spots especially to get to the upper Corlieu Falls but there’s a guide rope to help you get down and back up safely. The water was crisp and refreshing creekside and in the falls. Plenty of rocks to sunbathe, read or picnic fall-poolside. I recommend hiking down off the initial trail to the small grottos, smaller falls and creek views along the way. There are butterflies everywhere, the running water and ample shade are soul soothing.
There are a lot of gnat type insects around but I didn’t notice many mosquitos.

There’s a paved trail so it’s perfect for direction, there was some fallen trees that you had to go under or jump over! Other than that it was great! Didn’t hike the whole thing but what I did I was still able to see creeks and small waterfalls. Started from cedar valley road and parked across from where the trail started in a dirt area- car was safe.

We took this hike today with a few Boy Scouts, we started from Cedar Valley Road and went all the way to the falls and back. The water felt great but the first half of the hike has a lot of up and down hills. Overall we had a great time and took our time to enjoy it all.

Great little walk.

Took the whole family: 10 year old, 4 year old and 11 mo old in front pack. We parked off 41 and hiked all the way down into the falls. great trail!

Easy enough for the kids! Great hike and such a beautiful spot!

on Bassi Falls

I hiked the trail on 8/10/18. I enjoy destination hikes, especially waterfall hikes. I had no idea what to expect at the end of the trail. I was mildly disappointed that Bassi Falls was just a trickle this time of the year. The trail on AllTrails was very different from the route that I took. The trail is in the process of restoration and if it weren’t for trail markings I probably would have been lost. I had trouble finding the trail back to the trailhead. I had to rely on shoe prints and paths that looked to have had heavy foot traffic. Hopefully they make better trail markings for the rerouted path. However, I will definitely come back to see Bassi Falls in all its glorious flow, perhaps in the Spring time.

Can be moderate for some due to altitude and heat, but so so so worth it. Amazing woodsy beginning and then a drop down to beautiful pools and falls.

Highly recommended not to hard of a hike if you start from the upper road, hidden parking on a dirt trail. Go all the way to the top very slipper rocks, but wear your swim suit at the top there’s 3 holes you can jump into about 6-8ft deep so much fun and so refreshing after hiking the trail. Hike on the trail on the left of the falls.

Walked this trail on 7/22. Pros: probably great for kids, easily accessible from where we stayed, and had some small pools of water to put our feet in towards the end. Cons: very little to see along the way, broken glass along the path, and the waterfall was just barely flowing.

Nice trail but very little shade, lots of gravel and rocks and no waterfalls in mid July. On a blistering hot day you better wear sun screen, have a wide brimmed hat and have a good pair of hiking boots. Difficult to locate the trailhead if you have not been there before as signage is poor and the elevation will wear you out quickly unless you are accustomed to hiking in the mountains. Very few people for a Saturday afternoon.

Decent little hike but a comment that says, "not many hills" is inaccurate. It's almost all uphill from Cedar Valley Dr., some of it fairly steep. Of course, I was pretty tired from having hiked Half Dome the day before, but I imagine that people who are not somewhat regular hikers will struggle on this. It was hot, too, so bring at least 2 litres of water per person.

I didn't see any poison oak, but a lot of the types of plants that are frequently mistaken for poison oak. :-)

As of July 16, 2018, this trail is unfortunately closed until “the heat wave is over.” Not sure when that will be, but I do hope to visit this trail soon!

This trail was really nice. Easy to follow and most driving on paved road to get there. The water was not flowing like crazy (it's July, so . . .), but there were plenty of pools to splash in and get our feet/legs wet. The only reason I dropped it to 4 stars was that there were a lot of places with broken glass lying around, and I had concerns about our dog. She was fine, but it was not a pleasant part of the trip.

This place is amazing we whent swimming and took a small walk. The water is so close to the parking lot you don’t have to walk like 3 miles to get to the waterfalls. I love this place. Please pick up after yourself.
