Difficulty: Easy 5 miles RT, 500 ft elevation gain
Description. This is an on trail hike to the base of Bassi falls. It is optional to hike to the top of the falls during the long lunch break. There should be little to no snow on the trail.
Directions: From Hwy #50 about 20 miles east of Placerville, turn left (north) onto Ice House Rd (Forest Road 3). Drive 15.9 miles on Ice House Rd. to Union Valley Reservoir. Turn right onto an unmarked dirt road (Road 12N32A), just after crossing the bridge over Big Silver Creek (opposite Big Silver group camp). If you get to the Wench Creek Campground you went too far. Drive 0.2 miles to a junction and turn left. Park here. We will hike up the road.
This is my first hike since surgery on my knee so I am taking it easy.
