Stay on established trails -- it's easy to get lost at Big Basin and it can be hard to get found. Poison oak lurks near narrow trails The 12-mile Berry Creek Falls loop hike is a major haul; make sure you're up for it. Water in the park's streams must be purified before drinking. What to bring: Map: Buy one at the park HQ. Layers: It's often very cool in the redwoods but warm in the sun. Camera Binoculars Proper Hiking gear (and food/water) if you plan to hit the trails.

road to the trail is closed after the Lightning Complex fires. might be temporary, but couldn't get to the trailhead as the park road is blocked off. the devastation from the fires looks like a war zone

Didn’t happen to find a waterfall, still a nice trail overall. Plenty of shade and not to hot at peak heat hours. They have one-way trails to prevent people from crossing paths but they are kind of confusing. No internet connection so just make sure the app doesn’t restart!

Nice trail. Some parts of the trail may Mark as close on the map. But we didn't think it closed since there are no signs on both sides of the path, and we go through without any problem. It was very nice but we didn't find waterfall
