Saturday, August 10, 2019 ( 7:30 am to 3:30 pm) Berry Creek Falls Big Basin Hike Rating: 3C2 (12 miles, 2500 feet) Big Basin State park is located near Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz mountains. We'll be doing a 12 mile hike to Berry Creek falls, Silver Falls, and Golden Falls. We'll start at the headquarters and hike on the Sunset trail to the falls and return on the Skyline-to-the-Sea trail. The trail goes up and down for a total of 2500 feet of elevation mostly through lovely redwood forests. Bring a lunch, layers in case its cool in the shade of the redwoods, sun protection for the small section of exposed hiking, plenty of water, and money for the state park entrance fee. Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Los Gatos public parking lot for car pooling so we can get to the park in time to get parking spots. Big Basin is very busy on weekends and the parking lot can fill up by 10 a.m. Contact the leaders for the trailhead meeting time and place. Leader: Cathy Roberts, cdrdash@gmail.com Assistant Leader: Celeste
