    The winding roads to the park made me want to cry but the park and tranquility made it worth it

    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.

    A bit off, but a nice and calm place.

    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.

    Yoojin L. · August 26
  • Euni K.

    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.

    On weekends go very early or very late. Otherwise crowds and parking are overwhelming.

    Come see the tall trees. Great for a family friendly hike. Lovely gift shop as well.

    C Bailey · June 30
  • Neil B.

    Parking is sparse, get there early or take the shuttle.

    Something you'll never forget!

  • Morgan R.

    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

    Morgan Roderick · June 7

    nice view, fresh air, easy trails

    Bohyun Suh · May 18

    See ancient redwoods over 100 years old. Short 1.5hr hike, 7 per entry and go on weekdays

    Amazing place! Take your Dramamine for car ride into canyon. Once there, be sure to participate in "tree talk" held every couple hours. Great facts and info!

    Beautiful and peaceful! My favorite state park in SF!

  • Amy B.

    Amazingly peaceful if you go early (before 9am) or hike far to get away from crowds.

  • Chris B.

    The majesty of these ancient trees is enough for me to keep coming back. The trails are awesome. Best visited right before the summer season.

    Such a nice place to have a break and walk around. Nice trees and landscape

    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!

    Alexa Jane Denner · January 6
  • Jonathan

    Get there early to beat the crowds.

  • Celestine T.

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

    Celestine Tang · December 24, 2014
  • Tam T.

    We took the shuttle from Pohonos since the lot was full at the park. Shuttle attendant is HILARIOUS.

    Tam Tam · November 30, 2014
  • Victor S.

    Come early for parking and to avoid the afternoon tourists

    Victor Stuber · November 17, 2014
  • David B.

    Just 30min from.San Francisco. Yo won't miss it.

  • Stephen K.

    Be extra careful driving through here, more people than normal stop on the side of the road for a photo with a big tree

    Stephen Koontz · November 9, 2014

    Come here on a week day where you will fight less Louis Vuitton toting ladies for solitude.

  • Richard R.

    One of the most magical places on earth. Stroll through a leisurely hike along these majestic giants. Path is wooden planks for about 2 miles.

    Richard Revilla · October 15, 2014
  • Aviram

    After 4pm, cars can park in bus only spots.

    Aviram · October 6, 2014
  • Emiliy M.

    If both parking lots are full, there is street parking available a short walk away. Don't forget to keep your voices down in the park.

    Emiliy Marino · September 12, 2014
  • Paige C.

    What an amazing hike. Great views from the very top and the trails are marked very well. I can't wait to come back here and explore the redwoods even more!

    A bit of a nasty drive to arrive but it's 100% worth it. Gorgeous setting, awe inspiring.

    Tallest trees I've seen in a while.....

    Patricia Martin · August 24, 2014
  • Trevor F.

    Try to visit early for solitude on the hiking trails and close parking. If not, make very sure to remember where you left your car 😉...

    Trevor Filter · August 22, 2014
  • Brad L.

    Beautiful trees. Must see. Cafe food is pretty good, if limited. No picnicking allowed in the park.

    Brad L · August 15, 2014
  • Paul R.

    For a real inspirational walk around woodland. This does the trick!

    Paul Rogers · August 11, 2014
  • Layton D.

    Walk well beyond the boardwalk, or at least as far as it takes to not be dodging 100 other people. Makes the scenery more enjoyable.

    Layton Diament · August 11, 2014

    Docent tours

    Nikhil Bojja · August 11, 2014
  • Lauren S.

    There's EV/hybrid parking in the front handicap lot, saves you from a long roadside trek.

    Lauren Still · July 24, 2014
  • Cheryl H.

    A beautiful red wood forrest with some nice and easy hike trails. Try to get here early as parking is not easy and you might end up walking miles to the park from where you park your car.

    Cheryl Huang · July 15, 2014
  • Scott P.

    Don't go on the weekend if possible. If you do, take the shuttle bus or plan on walking up to a mile to the entrance, and then you walk all around the park. Shuttle is $5/person over 15, free under.

    Scott P · June 28, 2014
  • Emily H.

    Shhh... church is in session

    Emily Hlava · June 12, 2014
  • Nicole M.

    The noisy, disrespectful tourists on the main loop are enough to make you hate humanity. Take 2 hours to hike a loop and you'll be transported to a quiet, fragrant cathedral of trees.
