HikingFeeGreat!

This was a great trail and had directional arrows for COVID safe hiking. Not too populated. Great variety and hooks up with the waterfall trail.

HikingGreat!

This trail isn't too hard to get to off highway 1. No reviews mentioned a 2 mile dirt/rocky road to get to the trailhead so I was skeptical when my GPS told me to turn onto this road. Just be sure to bring a car that can handle the rocky terrain. As for the hike, I took others' word that this was more of a moderate hike than hard as it's listed but I would definitely rate it as hard. However, my opinion could be skewed by the fact that I went in 90 degree weather. The first mile of shaded switchbacks is definitely challenging but it is very rewarding once completed. As for the trail itself, it is fairly narrow and could be a concern with COVID but on a Saturday afternoon I only ran into a couple other groups who thankfully had masks. Trail is easy to follow so just keep going up! After checking out the upper vista point, you can continue on the path to the left of the sign where you'll walk through unshaded, dry, rocky terrain until you reach a dirt road. Go left up this road until you reach a fork with the right side going uphill and the left going downhill. If you go to the right at the fork, you'll reach some sort of signal tower with a bathroom and the view is incredible. The AllTrails map tells you to go further than this but I didn't because it was so dang hot and I was tired of walking on the dirt road in sweltering heat. Walking on a dirt road isn't my ideal hike so that's why I take off a star. But overall this is a good, challenging trail! Might need to come back to find the waterfall next time.

the waterfall area was closed which was a bummer. the beginning part of the trail just skirted the road for the first mile or so, which I wasnt a huge fan on. later the trail got really good. very secluded and twisted and turned through the redwoods. wish I would have started earlier in the day. the $10 parking is a bit steep in my opinion. if you make a full day out of it, I would say it is worth it. would love to camp out here.

Amazing trail with lots of shade. Tough incline in the middle of the trail but the timing is just right. One of my favorite trails ever.

Definitely a little buggy. If you wanna do the step incline first - don’t go the way under the little basin sign

Great hike easily accessible from Little Basin (no day use/camping reservations required). Find the trailhead by downloading the map - no service for AT&T/start at the authorized only vehicles trail before you enter the check in area. Depend on the map for navigation little or no trail signage. Beautiful views from the top of Eagle Rock of the coast, Big Basin and Santa Cruz mountains. Ironic the fire lookout tower burned down. There are lots of mosquitoes so wear repellent and watch for rattlesnakes. We unexpectedly encountered one that rattled at us and luckily slithered away.

I went here before it's closed by the fire, it was super nice with shades and huge trees. Check out my video, you can see what to expect on this trail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0xjyf6XYxU

Awesome Waterfall.. Trail is great too. but currently, due to covid 19 detours, we had to do 10.5 miles to complete this hike. Also there are too many mosquitoes, please use bug repellent.

We love this easy stroll through 10 little stops that displayed some of the largest and oldest redwood trees. The Mother of the forest is 1500+ years old. Pretty cool. Definitely a must see in Big Basin.

Gorgeous trail. Hot in August and dry most of the way. Our phone recorded more than 10 miles. Not sure what’s up

Nice hike, start early (aim for 7ish for less crowds). Park was absolutely packed when we left around 2pm. Could be a nice trail run ;)

I love this hike. It is definitely not easy, so expect some tough rocky spots especially toward the end. I got to the trail head about 20 minutes after Big Basin opened and didn’t see a single person on my way up. I recommend going early because the latter leg of the trail is uncovered and sunny. I’ve done this hike a few times—sometimes the peak is sunny, other times windy and foggy. Bring layers!

beautiful stroll for the first part of the hike...the second half is much more strenuous and completely worth it. my boys and I did it in 2.5 hours with a stop at the top to soak it all in.

Beautiful trail with a great chance to be immersed in the redwoods. The weather was super temperate for August and there was lots of shade all around. Although the park headquarters was crazy busy, and a few points around the trail too, there was still plenty of opportunity for alone time and miles of solitude. The waterfalls were flowing and I had only seen a couple other people at one of them. I did this trail plus a couple more miles on a detour for a total of 13 miles. Great spots to add some steps everywhere. Be mindful of the one way trail markers- Covid. But a lot of people were totally disregarding it. I started at 1500 and was back to my car at 1900. I ran a portion of the trail, but even without the running and the detour I think it’s definitely doable to finish the trail in less than the time posted. (I got there late after dealing with a road closure and detour and was determined to fit this trail in!) Take lots of water.
