"Berry Creek"
Location: Big Basin Redwood State Park, California.

Situated deep in the redwood forests of Santa Cruz hills Berry Creek trail is one of my favorite trails during late winter months. To get to this spot you need to hike about 5 miles from the visitor center by the hike through the giant redwoods is worth the long walk.

There are many cascading falls on this trail and typically after a rainstorm the water has nice flow. I will hopefully return here sometime again and capture other spots.

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.
