Silver Falls is just upstream from Berry Creek Falls. However, the stream that feeds Silver Falls is much smaller, so be sure to visit in the winter or spring after a good rainstorm.

Founded in 1902, Big Basin Redwoods State Park is the oldest state park in California. In May of 1900, a meeting was held at Stanford University to discuss the land, which was threatened by logging. As a result of that meeting, a group of businessmen, journalists, environmentalists, and politicians founded the Sempervirons Club (now known as the Sempervirons Fund). The club worked with the state legislature to approve a bill to purchase the land, which became known as California Redwood Park (the name changed to Big Basin Redwoods State Park in 1927). Over the years, the Sempirvirens Fund has continued to push for conservation and land aquisition in the area, and has worked to develop the park and its trails, campsites and picnic areas.
