Gothic Basin

Gothic Basin Professional Review and Guide

"Rugged and spectacular—yes. Gothic, perhaps, for this stark and mysterious basin harbors hidden tarns and disappearing waterways and is surrounded by spiraling peaks. A difficult hike on steep and rocky terrain, Gothic Basin with all its rich beauty can’t keep hikers away; just as it couldn’t keep miners away a century ago with its lure of riches.

It was those hardy folk who built this path. It has been upgraded since—somewhat. The splendor of the basin, however, can’t be improved one bit. Past glaciers and the agents of erosion have left it pretty darn near to perfect."
