September 2001

Highlights:

The 11-mile Berry Creek Falls Trail is a loop in Big Basin State Park in the Santa Cruz Mountains near Boulder Creek. A gloriously beautiful hike of moderate difficulty. Allow 6 hours or more, though it can be walked in under 4 hours if serious cardiovascular exercise is appropriate. You decide.

Respect the trail restrictions, in courtesy for the Forest and other users. Hikers only. No dogs. No horses. No mountain bikes.
