With its peak overlooking Big Basin and the Santa Cruz Mountains, Buzzard's Roost is a favorite hike in Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Suitable for all hiking levels, the panoramic views from the top beckon for you to linger over the scenery.

Pro Tip

"Really long hike… about 4 hours. The waterfalls are the best!"

Lisa Streuli

But the summit is just part of the fun. Enjoy the 2.2 mile hike up Pine Mountain Trail, stopping along the way to observe nature and the scenic views.

Starting from the park headquarters, pass Blooms Creek Campground and over its creek to begin Pine Mountain Trail’s 1,000-foot ascent beneath a canopy of cooling redwood trees.
