A most wonderful adventure awaits the ATV user at Bassi Falls. Bassi Falls is located near Pollock Pines in Eldorado National Forest. It may be accessed from Placerville, California. ATV within the Eldorado and work your way over to the falls, it is worth the trip. The forest is large and you reach the falls by trail. Make sure your gear includes comfortable hiking boots as well as being proper for your ATV driving.
The very best time of year to experience Bassi Falls is spring. The winter runoff inflates the water volume to give a stunning effect of exploding over the crest of boulders in a 120-foot drop. Once you've taken in this view, travel onward to the top and watch it spill from above. This is a superb way to spend some ATV quality time. The area of the forest has more to offer and you can spend a day on your ATV and leave, or a weekend and camp.
You could ATV in the summer, but be warned, by then the water has runoff and the falls tend to trickle over the drop. The creek bed doesn't dry up, but it becomes sluggish. If you are an ATV enthusiast who also is into photography make sure your ATV ride will arrive at the falls either early in the morning, or late in the afternoon. The sun on the water during the day turns an awesome picture moment into the mediocre. The other falls in the area you might find by ATV are: Bridal Veil, Buttermilk, Dogtown Creek, Silver, Traverse, and University.
