Big Basin Redwoods State Park
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
California’s oldest State Park, Big Basin is home to the oldest stand of coast redwoods south of San Francisco.
Big Basin Sate Park’s 18,000 acres contain nearly all of the Waddell Creek watershed, which drops in a series of spectacular waterfalls on its course to the Pacific. Eighty miles of trails connect diverse habitats from chaparral ridges to redwood slopes to wet, ferny canyons. For those willing to brave the 10+ mile trek, the loop to Berry Creek Falls is not to be missed.
