I went with my girlfriend the day after it rained so the stream that the path followed had a decent flow and we got to see some waterfalls. We hiked all the way to Lonesome Hut. You need to cross the stream twice in order to get there and since the water was so high we had to jump across some rocks to get there which was added fun and tested our balance. The lake by Lonesome Hut was beautiful and really big.

Very interesting to see and worth the easy hike. Parking is free and the hike is less than one mile.

Just off the main road. Free with ample Free parking on both sides.
We got a stroller down there with a 6 month old no issues. The Basin was very beautful and calming! Wish we had seen a bear though

I had not been here in 30 plus years. My wife had never been. It is so gorgeous. It is definitely worth the time to stop and enjoy rain or shine
