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.

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.

I highly recommend this hike for those looking for an intermediate-level trail with spectacular views of waterfalls in Big Basin State Park. It's about 10.5 miles if you do the full loop, all in the shade of majestic Redwoods.

Get an early start. Water always running. Gorgeous. Do the loop if you can and stop by Silver and Golden Falls.

Best in springtime and early summer. In winter trail is muddy & in autumn water flow is low. A significant hike, don't attempt unless prepared & in shape.

Well groomed trails - nice and wide. Be prepared for a steady climb! Make sure to take a snack and plenty of water on your hike. Comfy clothing, good shoes!
