We only went to Berry Creek Falls (not the entire loop), and did so going counterclockwise - a little over 8 mile hike round trip instead of the entire loop. The hike was very pleasant through the redwoods. We left just before 9am on a Thursday morning and did not see a soul until we were almost to the falls.... More

We paid to walk up a steep hill for what felt like 2 miles to see what I cn only describe as a bit of water spitting out over the top of a rock, there were midges everywhere buzzing around , people falling over tree stumps and no river to cool off in site. We laugh about it now but... More

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
