Map + Directions
Follow the directions for the Bassi Loop trail and turn right (south) at the junction with the Two Peaks trail near Bassi Fork. Cross Bassi Fork and head southeasterly toward Two Peaks. The trail follows the north edge of a large meadow at an easy gradient of zero to two percent. As you leave the meadow the trail climbs at a grade of about twenty-five to thirty percent for approximately one mile. Keep an eye out for the blazes and cairns marking the trail. The trail climbs to the northeast side of Two Peaks at the base but does not go to the top of the peaks. A cross-country climb on the granite to the top is worth the great view of Union Valley and the Crystal Basin. The trail beyond this point is in poor shape and a topographic map and compass are recommended. The trail is maintained to the private property boundary west of the Barrett Lake Jeep Trail.
