Big Basin Redwood State Park is one of the pristine and less known areas if the Bay Area. If you enjoy hiking this is a great place to see tall redwood tress, cascading waterfalls and interesting fall colors when the time is right. The place is best known for its beautiful Berry Creek waterfalls which require at least 4 miles of hiking to reach one way. There are actually three cascading waterfalls along the stream and all of them are very beautiful especially after a rainy season.
