This review is for starting at Big Basin Headquarters -> Waddel Beach

It's a moderate hike if you're doing this route, It's very very scenic and amazing. The route totals about 12 miles and is perfect for a 1 nighter if you're backpacking

If you're starting at Big Basin then you will need a permit which is easy to get and you have to park at JAY CAMP not the headquarters.

I would HIGHLY recommend to plan the logistics on who will pick you up and drop you off if you do not plan on hiking back up. There are no UBERS or LYFT there once you reach the beach. I was lucky and was able to hitch hike off a "van lifer" that just so happened to have slept at the beach the night before.
