Description

From Beehive Basin, you'll leave the main skin track and gain the north ridge that leads to the neighboring basin. The skin tracks diverge and you'll find yourself on a forested skin track up and onto the ridgeline between Beehive and Middle Basins. Atop the ridge, you have the option to descend back into Beehive, or make your way farther out, down into Middle Basin. Keep in mind that getting back from Middle Basin requires re-applying your skins and climbing back out prior to descending the Beehive skin track back to the parking area.
