Definitely a rewarding and beautiful hike. Getting to the lake we had to home through Bullion Basin trail to Norse Peak and then take the pct to the cutoff for Basin Lake on the right. It's a steady climb to the top so with enough time, anyone could get into this lake. We backpacked in and stayed for the night. Fishing was decent with 10 inches being the biggest we caught. The best camp site is on the far end of the lake so make the walk around. Animals (elk, goats and foxes) were abundant and provided some entertainment on the way in and out. Take your camera cause it's definitely scenic. Happy hiking.

Long but beautiful hike. Made it to the peak and got to see some white goats. The view from the top was worth the hike. I might consider backpacking if I do this one again and spend more time hiking down to the lake.
