Join us as we head to Blue Basin, located in Deigo Martin.
Rating – Blue Basin is a very easy hike, a family-friendly event. The walk to the actual waterfall is about 5 minutes.
There are 2 ratings for this event
1- The first is easy(1 out of 10), a 5 minute walk straight to Blue Basin Waterfall(includes a 2 minute hill prior to the trail and 3 minutes to the waterfall).
2- The second option(6 out of 10 and is optional) is to go above Blue Basin Falls. Persons will be screened on the morning for this option as it involves a very difficult climb along the side of the waterfall.
