Muir Woods has a rich and varied history, from its use by the Coast Miwok people, to its early days of tourism and the Mount Tamalpais Mill Valley Scenic Railway, to an era of conservation, to modern preservation. In each era, the forest has been affected by the actions of humans, for better or for worse. Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, this coastal redwood preserve features majestic redwoods and scenic hiking trails that draw more than 1.5 million visitors each year.

We stayed in San Francisco for eight days, and this was the whole family's favourite activity of the week. We took an Uber out (about $40 from the city centre), and took progressively more challenging trails. After a few hours, we had climbed maybe 300 feet above the valley floor and walked about 6 miles. The trees were breath-taking, the... More

If you've never seen the redwoods up close, you may find yourself glancing out the window of your vehicle on the winding mountain road leading from San Francisco pointing at the occasional tall tree saying "is that a redwood?" The response I got was "no, you'll know when you see one." I thought it was cliche but I stand by... More

We visited this beautiful spot yesterday, luckily finding a parking spot in the nearest lot. It was a gorgeous sunny day, but we grabbed our jackets as we knew it would be a bit chilly in the deep shade of the magnificent giant redwoods. Here's a little tip you might not know: if you are 62 or older, for only... More

Muir Woods is very beautiful. Its a $10 entry fee and they have an organic cafe/shop as you enter. Its definitely worth the visit. I would suggest having a full day to explore the tracks surrounding the Muir woods.

This was a third visit since we were married 30 years ago. We went early this morning to avoid crowds and it was worth it. Do bring a jacket and a camera. If going on longer hikes bring water , and snacks.

An amazing nature spot and intriguing part of the history of US' national parks and monuments. From its founding as the original Bohemian Club location (if you aren't aware of that organization, that is a snapshot into California history/culture), to its current status as one of the most visited and well-loved national monuments, the importance of this acreage can scarcely...

Each time we visit, we are in awe of the California Coastal Redwood Forest, the huge trees are the absolute largest on earth in height. The serenity of the walk through the forest is so relaxing and puts you touch with living things that are 500 to 800 years old. The largest Redwood tree is 380 feet and is located... More

Beautiful trees. Cool junior ranger badges made out of redwood even!!! Lots of walking, but it is on wooden sidewalks. Absolutely no cell service in or around park if you are at t. If you rely on God, you better screen shot maps ahead of time. Leave plenty of time for steep curvy roads and detours because roads are a... More

This place is a lesson in how to protect your natural resources and yet take pleasure in showcasing it to the world. Some of the finest resources of hard redwood trees and virgin paths. Hats off to the rangers who keep the place spic and span. Visit is $10 including parking and a guide phone. Dont forget to visit the... More
