Easy, short hike to an incredible waterfall. When you reach the base of Bassi Falls, you will be treated to an awesome view of the entire 120 ft. cascade. Later in the summer, there is really not much to see, as Bassi Creek becomes a mere fragment of its former self.

gorgeous! A lot of helpful info on this site. Take icehouse road up past Sunset/Fashoda campgrounds. Turn right (across from Big Silver group camp) onto a paved road that turns to gravel. make your first left and if you get there early, follow the road til it ends and park. The trail starts right after where you park. Bring swimsuits! Great for picnicking and swimming. we got a bit lost on the way back but found our way. my 8 year old was struggling on the way back to the car. Our dog had no problem. My advice is to note landmarks so you follow the right path back to the right parking area. There is a lower parking area but I recommend using the one at the top (end of road).

Awsome water falls. Kinda of hard to find where to park. Once you pass the bridge make your first right than your first left and follow the dirt road up. There are no signs that say bassi falls but it's not that hard to find once you see the camp grounds and cars parked. It can be a 4 mile hike round trip but we only hiked about 2 miles round trip. super easy to do with the family of all ages. Highly recommended but also a short hike for the drive so it's 50/50. Alot if water from the snow melt, kind if busy on a Saturday but you can definitely still do your own thing without any problems. Bring swim suits and a water camera for awsome pictures.

Beautiful hike. Plan to bring water shoes, sunscreen, and a backpack to carry your things. Also, remember where you enter the falls. We could not find the trail back (we were only lost for a few minutes) but it is a very small path up. We were too excited about the Falls to pay attention.

Difficult to find the starting point of the trail (right parking lot). But the trail is great and easy. Bring swim suits!
