Established in 1902, Big Basin Redwoods State Park is the oldest park in the state. With over 80 miles of trails, there is plenty to do here from biking to hiking to horseback riding.
In addition, you'll find plenty of waterfalls here (Berry Creek Falls is arguably the prettiest), as well as a variety of bird life including egrets, herons and California woodpeckers.
The park is 25 miles northwest of Santa Cruz via Highways 9 and 236 and about 65 miles south of San Francisco.
