Trail shared by Miguel Vieira

Hike through scenic redwood groves on the way to the Berry Creek Falls Trail.

Features River/Creek

Description

From the start of the Sunset Trail at a junction with the Dool Trail, climb a forested hillside to the unpaved Middle Ridge Road. Cross the road, then continue through open redwood forest for two miles. Descend to West Waddell Creek and cross it over a bridge. Pass the turn off for the Timms Creek Trail and climb again. Cross small Berry Creek and then enter an open woodland of chaparral and Douglas-firs with some of the only views on this trail. At the junction with the Berry Creek Falls Trail, turn right and head toward Sunset Trail Camp, where the trail ends.
