Mountain biking

We rode bike from Waddell beach to Berry creek fall. Actually, the bike road would be ended 1.5miles ahead berry creek fall. This bike route is quiet and shady. My son (9 years old) also completed this mission.

First to Review

Completed 7/22/2019. Parts of the trail were closed and we took a few detours to avoid closed portions. It was beautiful with an optional detour to view 3 waterfalls. Bathrooms available at the campground above the waterfalls. My group counted 74 banana slugs on the hike!
