Comments: My father (60 years old) and I arrived in the Basin around 11:00 AM and decided to loosen up our legs on the Lost Mines trail. This is the best hike for hikers of all abilities. It is very laid back and easy to complete with a moderate level of effort. The best part is the unbelievable views when are at the end of the trail! This trail is every bit as spectacular as any other in the park. If you are pressed for time, or just do not want to hike all day, then I suggest this hike highly.
