American Basin Road spurs off Cinnamon Pass and makes a short climb up along the Handies Peak Wilderness Study Area to its end at the American Basin Trailhead. Those looking for a place to camp are treated to a handful of stellar spots, all with views of American Peak and Handies Peak. Although the trail may be busy with hiking traffic, this is still a worthwhile trek when you're in the area. The area is renowned for its wildflowers in late summer.
