Great hike with several waterfalls through the stunning Great Basin redwoods. Going counterclockwise leads to a massive elevation increase near the end. Starts out low elevation near creeks in the redwood forest before going up on a ridge to descend down to the various waterfalls. After the waterfalls, a huge climb to the Mt. McAbee overlook with gorgeous views out to the Pacific. Redwoods, waterfalls, and banana slugs make for plenty of photo ops.

Going at a brisk pace with relatively frequent photo stops and a lunch break at Berry Creek Falls took us ~5 hours.
