This family-friendly hike is not only scenic year-round, but is popular for its dismalites (glowworms) in the summertime.

This is a short and pretty trail, great for the whole family. Glowworms, called dismalites, are a special attraction in the summer.

There is a $10 fee for adults, $6.75 for kids. Dogs are allowed on leash.

The fee has gone up!! Went with my college aged daughter on this hike because it was on her bucket list. After 3 days of hiking the beautiful Sipsey Wilderness waterfall hikes this was embarrassingly bad. The trail is full of commercial signs in bright letters and the water crossings were broken so you could only cross in water shoes. Several people were on the trail with us and were all disappointed. The waterfall is at the ice cream shop at the parking lot and man-made with concrete blocks. We went in the Spring.

This is a small hike, about a mile. It's such a beautiful place but it's very crowded during the weekends. It also costs $10/person which, I think, is ridiculous.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.

While most people go snowshoeing near the Bear Lake or Glacier Gorge area in RMNP, Wild Basin is a much less trafficked option.
