A gentle scenic walk with its 30-foot waterfall and several lesser cascades along the Bozenkill.

Starting from the parking lot you follow the Blue trail. Once you come to a fork you can choose which way you would like to start. I always bear right, which will bring you along the Bozenkill. Here you can take a quick trip along the yellow trail to the lean-to and base of the 30-foot waterfall. Also a well known swimming spot.

After relaxing a bit continue back to the Blue trail and follow it along the Bozenkill until you come to a stream crossing. Here you will cross and pick up the Orange trail.

Once on the Orange trail I always head right. Shortly this will bring you to the top of the waterfall you enjoyed earlier. Continue on the Orange trail until it returns you back to the stream crossing.

Now back on the Blue trail head right and enjoy some smaller cascades. Follow the Blue trail back to the original junction to return to your vehicle.

I love Christman’s. I grew up in Duanesburg and this was a family favorite for warm summer day hikes. In the past few years, however, there has been so much more graffiti and trash, people don’t stay on trail, and often people leave food scraps after they leave. With that said, it is still a beautiful place for a short day hike. The waterfall and natural pool are beautiful, and the hills offer a nice challenge. I always bring a bag to collect trash. It’s a great way to teach others the importance of LNT and respect for the environment!

Really nice trail with beautiful views of several waterfalls, including one large one. This is perfect for short hikes and picnics.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!

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.
