A strenuous loop that encounters picturesque waterfalls and beautiful redwood groves. From the Park HQ take the Skyline to the Sea Trail then return via the Sunset Trail. Long hike through old-growth redwoods to shimmering waterfalls is a Bay Area favorite. Redwoods and waterfalls make this the best hike in the San Francisco Bay Area. Veteran Berry Creek Falls hikers recommend a counter-clockwise loop starting on the Sunset Trail, turning left on to the Berry Creek Falls Trail, taking another left onto the Skyline-to-the-Sea trail, which returns to the trailhead.
