I’m so excited to share photos from our family hike at Big Basin Redwoods State Park. This park is about one hour from where we live in San Jose, California. I feel so blessed to live in California because there are so many beautiful hiking trails surrounding us that I have yet to discover. I will be sure to post all of our family hikes here to help you decide which destinations you may want to explore.
Upon arrival, we decided it would be best to speak with someone about trail recommendations. We were looking for a trail loop that was somewhere around 5 miles, has plenty of shade, and has a waterfall. The park ranger we spoke with recommended the “Skyline to the Sea” trail which connects to the “Sequoia” trail. The elevation for this hike is about 300 feet, which is considered on the easy side but can be quite a workout!
