For up to date park information, please see their page here: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=540 This is actually a combined Mountain Bike and Hike.  The first 6 miles in are bikeable (but you can walk if you prefer), and the last two miles are best hiked.  Start at the beach at Waddell Creek and go up the dirt road.  Local residence use the first mile or two, so it is possible to see a car, but after that bikers and hikers and bannana slugs are all you will see.  The first 6 miles the trail appears to be an old logging road, but the creek has eaten it away to single track in a few spots, and the trail goes up the hill side a few feet in one spot where the creek ate the old road and into the hill.  Big Basin State Park provides a bike rack at the 6 mile point where bikes are not permitted beyond.  Everyone brings a lock, but they are probably not even needed.  The walk to Berry Falls is very scenic as most of the bike ride taking you through redwood groves and along the creek.  Berry Falls is wide and probably a hundred feet tall.  The trail a mile past Berry Falls is worth the walk and has a couple 50 foot water falls. Another half mile further takes you to a backpack campground.Show more

As of August 2020, this park is currently closed due to wildfire until further notice. See here for more info: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=30009 Using the Skyline to the Sea Trail, this route starts at the sea and then heads inland. For those interested, you can bike the first 6 miles of this trail. I passed a biker and one hiker along my way to the falls and that was it. At the 6 mile marker, you'll come to a point where there is a sign, 2 small foot bridges to your right, and a place to lock up bikes to the left. The trail marker will say no bikes and no horses past this point. After that it's only about a half mile to the falls. It's a pretty easy bike ride to this point, so this would be a quick alternative to seeing the falls if you're short on time.Show more
