Gothic Basin with all its lure of mineral riches couldn’t keep miners away a century ago. And today, despite a challenging hike that nearly stays true to the rocky old prospectors’ path, the basin still can’t keep determined hikers away. Romantically named, Gothic Basin is stark and mysterious, harboring hidden tarns and disappearing waterways, surrounded by spiraling peaks.
