Trail Description

Baskins Creek Trail is a relatively short hike in the middle of the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail loop. Its trailhead is near the access point for Trillium Gap, Rainbow Falls, Bull Head, and Old Sugarlands Trail. About a mile and a half into the trail you can take a quick side trail to Baskins Creek Falls.

Just after a mile on the trail is an additional side trail (very steep) up to Baskins Creek Cemetery. The falls are located shortly after this side trail. It's said that old settlers used to use these cascades to bathe under.
