Distance: 10.2 miles


Explore young redwood forests and several waterfalls along this 10.5-mile loop in Big Basin Redwoods State Park.

From the Big Basin visitor center, head southwest for 200 yards on the Redwood Trail. At the first junction, turn right onto Skyline to Sea Trail to begin the loop. The route follows several trails through Waddell Creek State Wilderness and meanders through lush prehistoric forests filled with sword ferns and banana slugs. About 5 miles into the hike, enjoy sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean from an exposed ridgeline, then drop back down to sea level. Grab some lunch at the base of Berry Creek Falls—a 40-foot waterfall that cascades down moss-covered rock. The trail passes three more waterfalls and loops back up and over the ridgeline to the visitor center.
