Much of the trail is currently closed but they do provide detours to allow you to make it to the falls. It is not a super hilly hike and can be done by people of all ages and most fitness levels. It would also make for a decent trail to run if you’re into that kinda thing.

Bit of a strenuous hike as I took the Sunset trail to the falls and then back by way of Skyline to the Sea trail. This whole hike had many muddy parts due to rainfall two days prior but if you have the right shoes it’s all passable. Note that part of the Skyline trail is currently closed but detour signs are very visible. The area around the falls was quite crowded with other hikers. While I wasn’t surprised by this I was surprised at the number of people on a weekday afternoon. The falls are beautiful and worth the trip! Magnificent redwoods surround you on the entire hike. Big Basin generally feels a little over used though. The trails are well maintained but not especially pretty. $10 to park at HQ and the people are very helpful.....still wound up wandering around to find the trail head though. There’s a store, snack bar, restrooms, and gift shop located there.

This is a five star hike and anyone who disagrees came at the wrong time/weather, or is wrong. The section between the falls will melt your brains out of your nose it’s so beautiful. It rained an inch yesterday and the place was stunning and flowing huge.

First to Review

Trail is very slippery, some trees have fallen and it’s tough to get over them. Waterfalls are raging! Great hike!
