    Wander through the trees and go back in time 200 or 200,000 years. What a magnificent place.
  • Richirich G.
    Loved it but make sure your there early. Parking is horrible. Another option is to park in Pohono and take the shuttle to Muir Woods, it's only $5/ticket.

    Hiking on the Forest Moon of Endor. An easy drive from San Francisco into Marin County, these trees will make even the most hardened city-dweller appreciate the beauty of nature.

    great place to go with people who don't love hiking. trails are accessible and the redwoods are beautiful. parking is a hot mess, though, so carpool and try to come on off-peak days and hours.

    This place is absolutely amazing. Pictures can not show the splendor of visiting. I still can't believe such natural beauty is only 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco.

    If you're going solo or in a very small group, head off the main trail for a serene hike away from all the chatter. You'll encounter narrow dirt paths with minimal foot traffic.

    the trail is great! but, the communication about shuttle times or the availability of shuttles compared to the demand isn't super great. make sure to plan ahead, leave early and be 1st in line!

    Arrive @ 6 or later in the summer for thinner crowds and closet parking and FREE admission. You'll enjoy it more.

    Walk far enough away from the visitors centre to enjoy the quiet, there's a remarkable contrast to city life. I would go early morning on a weekday, if going again

    The Muir Woods is full of beautiful red woods. Perfect for a stroll with friends or a solo nature walk. Be sure to stop by the café or the gift shop. Sweatshirts are dope!

    Great if you like hiking. Otherwise, you'll only need to spend ten minutes in there. The "view" is the same throughout.
