A long ramble down through redwood groves and along fern-filled creek beds leads to the platform overlooking sheltered Berry Creek Falls. A long meander down the Skyline to the Sea Trail, through glade after glade of majestic coast redwoods, leads to one of Big Basin Redwoods State Park’s premier attractions, Berry Creek Falls. The platform overlooking the 60-foot fall, which fans out across the dark-rock face behind, is often crowded with appreciative visitors taking snapshots and enjoying lunch before beginning the long climb back to the trailhead. The falls are a worthy destination, tucked in a narrow box canyon shaded by redwoods and flanked by slopes thick with fern and pocked with moss-covered rocks.
