    It’s a great park for a day hike. The headquarters area is the busiest, however there are other places you can start. Highway 1 at Waddell Beach is one such place, also there’s access from Ano Nuevo State Park on Whitehouse Canyon Road. China Grade Road offers some other out of the way starting points. There’s also Little Basin Road where you can go up to Eagle Rock on Empire Grade (but no signs on that trail anywhere).

    Beautiful shaded, serene trails that are lined with stunning redwoods. The park is also filled with great facilities.The campgrounds being so crowded, with large groups and tons of screaming kids was the only negative. The sites and facilities are quite nice, but the constant noise made it something other than the serene experience I was looking for.

    We went hiking here one day. The Berry Creek trail is about 11 miles of pure beauty with two gorgeous waterfalls to see. Not looking to do 11+ miles, you can always hike to the first waterfall, about 3.5 miles in, so a total of 7 miles round trip with little elevation change.Even though we didn’t camp there, we check out the camp sites. They book about 6 months in advance. They are definitely secluded from everything , except each other. The campsites are almost on top of each other. When nature calls out in the wild, there is a port-a-potty for campers to use.

    Big Basin Redwoods State Park is a super nice park with practically an endless number of trails. We came here back in July and spent about two and a half hours here. Of course because this place has the word ‘big’ in its name for a reason and I love nature, I could spend a month living here! I don’t think it’s even possible for even if you camp out here for a week could you see everything. The weather here is truly fantastic and makes you want to stay outdoors for as long as possible. There are so many trails to choose from and of course, there are trails that are flat and others that are steep and continuously uphill. Thankfully, there were plenty of park rangers to help answer any questions and help you pick the best route for your hike based on length and difficulty. Unfortunately when we were here back in July there was a drought so no waterfall action. The gift shop here was good too. I got a Bigfoot magnet and a redwood tree magnet. Speaking of redwood trees we saw of course hundreds of them and some were even hollow so you could stand inside of them. Just in case you were wondering, no I did not encounter any Bigfoot. 🙁 Anyway, I must say though that because I had also been to Muir Woods and Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park I think overall I enjoyed Henry Cowell the most and Big Basin and Muir Woods are at a tie for second place.
