  • Absolutely wonderful trail. make sure to bring some hiking boots because there's been a few areas on the Dry Lake Trail, the one that connects to Bass Lake. Has some muddy area's. Absolutely breathtaking views! I definitely recommend it to anyone touring Ely. If you are looking for a wonderful Trail to hike. This is the spot, the locals love it too.
  • Great walking trails, at least 4-5 hours od hiking to do here + a small waterfall to dip in
  • It was confusing to find the correct tail from the falls back to the parking lot. The falls were awesome and the hike was pleasant.
  • Beautiful place
  • great hiking area with scenic views and good trail markings
