A varied trail loop links Big Basin Redwoods’ main attraction, Berry Creek Falls, with the two equally stunning but less-visited falls that lie upstream. Silver Falls flies over a relatively sheer cliff into a small pool, while Golden Cascades tumbles over tiers near the apex of the loop. This long loop, which takes in Berry Creek’s three waterfalls before curling back toward home, is arguably outside the realm of a day hike.
Indeed, it can be part of an overnight trip, because Sunset Camp lies along the route. But for hardy hikers who want to see what lies above lovely Berry Creek Falls, it’s worth the effort. Just be sure you alot enough time to complete the whole loop in the span of a short winter’s day.
