The Berry Creek Falls trail is a nice 5 mile roundtrip day hike. It is mostly down as you go to the falls overlook and of course up on the return. If you want to add to the trip, continue onwards another mile past the overlook to see all of the Berry Creek cascades.

This is a beautiful place to hike. There are several trails you can add to the Berry Creek Trail if you want to complete a loop rather than return the same way. If it has been raining or is raining the waterfalls will be wonderful. There will be less people if it is raining as well. There is a $10... More

You need to hike to Berry Creek Falls if you are at Big Basin Redwoods State Park. The hike is a total of 8 miles and it is a moderate hike. You will love the beautiful falls once you arrive. Give yourself plenty of time, take lots of water and a snack or a light lunch. You can eat at... More

We got to Big Basin around 8:00am paid our fees and started hiking. We went counter clock wise as recommended on another site. We only saw 1 other hiker on the way to the falls but once we passed the falls we ran in to people smoking pot, drinking beer, and playing music while they hiked. Not my idea of... More

Make sure you go when there has been a good amount of rain. The falls were flowing strong when we went and it was BEAUTIFUL! They were the best parts of the hike. I wish they weren't all gathered in one place though because the rest of the hike after the waterfalls was boring... Couldn't wait for it to just... More

The only amenities are a bike rack about a mile back and a couple benches. This is a place to go if you are a good hiker, biker and you love trees and nature. Don't expect anything else. See my review about Waddle Creek / Big Basin. Berry Creek Falls is in the middle of that park. I love going... More

Hiking to Berry Falls worth the time it takes. Simply gorgeous. Amazing forest of old Red Woods be prepared, bring water, and wear good hiking shoes some of the trails have roots, and are narrow. Saw wild life deer, squirrel, a hawk with his/ her fresh kill having breakfast.

This trial kept me coming back to Big Basin, even in the early morning when it was 30degrees and some of the small pools of water had frozen water. I've heard the sea trail is pretty good too, but I haven't had the pleasure of hiking it yet.

This was a very nice a moderate trail. I recommend starting this trail early because it takes about 5hrs depending on how fast you hike. I started at 3pm and didn't get back to the parking lot until 8pm. I had to hike for about an hour in the dark with our iphones as flashlight. Lucky for us we were... More

The falls were a pleasure after a challenging hike. Berry Creek trail is the best trail in the park. This area gets crowded so reach early in the morning in summers.
