Hike the Berry Creek Falls Loop

11 Miles Round Trip - 2000 ft gain - Loop Trail

Big Basin Headquarters - Search Nearby - Added by Steven Herbert

This loop is regarded as one of the most beautiful hikes in the Bay Area and takes you past 3 stunning waterfalls.

Nestled in California's oldest state park, the popular Berry Creek Falls Loop hike begins at the Big Basin park headquarters. If you're up for 11 miles, a thousand feet of elevation gain through towering redwoods and along serene creeks, and spread out over a half-day, then this is the hike for you. Veteran Berry Creek Falls hikers recommend a counter-clockwise loop starting on the Sunset Trail, turning left on to the Berry Creek Falls Trail, taking another left onto the Skyline-to-the-Sea trail, which returns to the trailhead.

Was here in 2013. Amazing! https://mgomaize.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/big-basin-state-park/

Visit from Winter to early Spring for best water flow.

Just did this one over the weekend. The falls are trickling due to the drought but still a beautiful hike through some amazing redwood groves.
