"The Berry Creek Loop is the centerpiece of Big Basin. The highlight of this popular loop is a series of waterfalls culminating in Berry Creek Falls. The loop also features the Skyline-to-the-Sea Trail, which climbs through four miles of pristine redwood forest in a lush, steep-sided canyon. The loop offers some great redwood scenery and has remarkably little encroachment from roads and other development.

The 10-mile loop starts at park headquarters and descends by way of the Sunset Trail to Berry Creek Falls, before the long and scenic ascent on the Skyline-to-the-Sea trail back to park headquarters. The total elevation gain is about 1800 feet. Taking the loop in this counter-clockwise direction spreads the climbing more evenly throughout the hike and saves the best scenery for last. The hike takes about five hours."
