Forest

A lush hike to a water-rimmed sinkhole.

Follow the paved path starting at the interpretive center. At the T-junction turn right, heading into the forest. In a half mile a bridge will deliver you over a ravine, before a set of stairs take you down to Devil's Millhopper. Take in your view of the sinkhole before heading back up the stairs. At the top of the steps, turn left to finish the loop back to the center.

Anticipate mosquitoes in this area.

Literally just a hole in the ground in the middle of an urban-ish area. Really weird and unexpected but cool experience all the same.

Nothing too exciting unless you really like boardwalks that lead to a partially flooded sinkhole.

Over 200 steps to climb. Mini accomplishment.

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

Winter Hike to Calypso Cascades

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