Good hike!! Nothing too crazy. A small detour but other than that, very smooth. Parking has been cut to half but we had no trouble finding a spot! Took us about 4.5 hours but my boyfriend and I are pretty fit. For the most part, you’re under the shade of the Redwoods but there’s a small stretch where you’ll hit direct sunlight. Highly recommend.

Have done this trail many times.. there is a small parking area near the bottom of the trail where I access it. Beautiful hike that has awesome views and is definitely a moderate to intense hike on the way up.. definitely bring water!

This trail & park is closed due to COVID-19. Got stopped by a park ranger. Instead I drove 20 min to do the Fall Creek and Lost Empire Trail in Henry Cowell which was a really awesome trail. Super beautiful!

Can’t go wrong with any trail at big basin!

Very peaceful trail. Went with my older parents and they enjoyed it. Lots of shade and a nice view of the ocean at the top if there’s not too much fog

Very enjoyable hike! Went while it was overcast and very light sprinkling out but it just adds to the forest atmosphere. It took myself about 5 hours to complete with many stops along the way to enjoy the views. It will be muddy in spots this time of year so make sure you have proper boots, besides that it’s a very easy going hike. If you enjoy taking photos there are lots of awesome views from the Redwoods to the Waterfalls! Highly recommend for anyone that wants to get out for the day during your “Social Distancing”. 5 Stars!

Dool trail now open. overall good hike. nice incline challenge and interesting sights to see.

This hike was even cooler than I thought it would be. Big Redwoods and a bunch of waterfalls, what else can you ask for? The waterfalls were pretty unique too in that the rock at the bottom of couple curves out, sort of like a quarter pipe for skating boarding. Some cool colors on those rocks as well. I went on a Saturday and it was less busy than I anticipated. Parking lot was less than half full when I arrived at 9 AM. Bring 10 bucks to park. Trail muddy in a couple places; some roots were slippery.

Even though it rained for the entirety of the 6 hours it took us to do this loop, I have no regrets! There were no crowds and it was so beautiful. We saw 13 banana slugs, 20 salamanders, and one gigantic murder bird - aka, raven. There are minor closures at the beginning, but really good detour signage! Would 100% do this trail again. The falls were stunning. This is more on the moderate side, maybe considered strenuous for distance. Really good variety of up/down/flat so it doesn't feel hard at all. Garmin tracked 14.5 miles (maybe due to the detours, maybe a little bit off, but it feels like an accurate representation). Keep an eye on the weather and pack a poncho!

Fantastic experience! A bit strenuous if you’re not too fit like my hiking buddy ;)

Amazing hike and shaded loop trail. Hiked on a day with considerable rain, but the trail held up just fine. There was lots of water flowing in the waterfalls and streams. Loved the long series of waterfalls and path right next to them.

Lightly trafficked trail, parking for 3-4 cars at TH. Steep uphill climbs with great views at the top, lots of shade. Trail is clear and dry as of 3/4/20.

Barry Creek Falls is a classic hike, the loop is on the longer side (10 miles) but it's mostly full coverage and the cadence of up and down is really nice and consistent. Because it's so far away from civilization it's nice and quiet, just make sure you go in the off season!

Very green with lots of shade. It’s quite cold if you start early - we started the hike at around 10am when there’s no sun shine and it was freezing cold.

Slightly strenuous, but completely worth the effort

Absolutely my new favorite trail here. Multiple gorgeous viewpoints and just strenuous enough to get a good heart rate going. Wear good shoes - terrain is a bit choppy toward the top.

It took us 3,5 hours to finish this trail. There is a small waterfall on your way, but it’s nice.

This was so beautiful. I went in the clockwise direction which made for a LOT of uphill hiking but it was worth it. The waterfalls were stunning. I saw 13 banana slugs and enjoyed the shade very much (I burn easily...) Utterly exhausted by the end, with very muddy boots.

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.

Kind of a boring trail... forget about the view of any sea.... don’t know why “sea” is in the name of the trail. Take me about 3 - 4 hours

Moderate hike, 5 miles round trip. Most of the hike is in the shade under redwood trees until you come to the sunny and sandy ridge. Beautiful, quiet hike with small stream.

really lovely trail. pretty muddy this time of year but we arrived at 10am to find it nice and quiet. we climbed slippy rock and it was by definition, pretty slippy, but fairly easy to climb for those with a good level of fitness

I would say this is more of a long walk than a hike. It's nice and quiet. There are a few moments where you'll need to make sure you stay on the right path, as 1 or 2 of the poles with the path names are missing them. I'd suggest making sure to download the map from here on AllTrails before heading up to the park.

A bit muddy this time of year, so I’d recommend some footwear with some grip. Other than that it’s a great trail through some amazing redwoods. Pretty highly trafficked on the weekend, so if you’re looking for something more remote this may not be for you
