The Basin Cascade trail begins on the western end of the maze of trails around the Basin, at a junction with the Pemi Trail, about 0.2 miles from the parking areas. The trail easily ascends along the very scenic Cascade Brook to its intersection with the Cascade Brook Trail, a segment of the Apalachian Trail, at 1.0 mile.
