Trail shared by Miguel Vieira

This stunning trail visits three waterfalls in a lush redwood canyon.

Features River/Creek · Waterfall

Description

The Berry Creek Falls Trail starts at a junction with the Skyline to the Sea Trail. You immediately see Berry Creek Falls through the trees and then run to a popular viewing platform for the falls.

From the platform, climb the cliff next to Berry Creek Falls and enter a lush redwood canyon. Some more running takes you to Silver Falls. Climb the steep stairs carved into the rock to get to the top of Silver Falls and then run a short distance to Golden Cascade. The trail ends at the junction with the Sunset Trail.
