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.

Went for a walk with some friends, and could not help but get overwhelmed by the beauty of nature. We for a short 1 hour walk before we head off to the close by town of sausalito to end the afternoon with ice creams.

There's not much I can about the splendid views or serene aura, so I'll focus on logistics. • parking is limited, so be prepared to park several hundred yards away and then walk in • entrance fee is $10 per person • it's much colder here than at nearby Muir beach or surrounding areas, so bring a hoodie. It was... More

Beautiful beautiful "spiritual place" amongst the most surreal trees anywhere. Was rainy when we went but still a fantastic experience. Was part of Dylans tours in San Francisco. Would definitely visit again. Highly recommended!

Besides the beauty ( which leaves one speechless) it is a short area to walk in so if one isn't too fit they can still enjoy this gorgeous space.

This was a great place to visit with the family! I wished that we would have came a little more prepared for a longer hike though. This place has long and short trails for everyone. The trees were so beautiful! If you decide to visit get there early or plan on walking a bit before you get to the park... More

Muir Woods is one of my "wonders of the world" and it is right in my back yard. My husband and I often go there early in the morning. It is quiet and you can feel the magic of these giant trees! I highly recommend a visit.

We visited on Super Bowl Sunday in hopes it would be a little less crowded. It was still pretty busy, but there is enough space for everyone :) We had the pleasure of meeting Nelson, volunteer tour guide. He was excellent and shared a lot of knowledge. It is beautiful and pictures do not do it justice. Take a sweater,... More

There are several walks of different lengths which you can take. It is 'organized' by bridges. There are 4 bridges so four different loop trails from 1/2 mile to 2 miles. There is a National Park admission fee. The trees are amazing and the signage is very good.

This small set (no pun intended) of redwoods along the coast just north of San Francisco offers a perfect break from the hectic world in which we live, even on holiday. As you go further back into the glen, you will find that the outside noises of traffic and people just fade away. Wildlife abounds and you can get a... More

this place reminded me of the enchanted forests in Disney films. It smelled so alive! The walk was very doable, even for my disabled husband. It was a tranquil place to end our vacation. I would highly recommend it.
