Muir Woods is one of my favorite places to go in the SF Bay Area. The trees are amazing. I also love the fact that the paths are handicapped accessible. The snack bar had really good fresh sandwiches available for not a lot of money. Great way to spend an afternoon outside.

This is an area that whether you are a nature geek or not, you must visit. Being in the San Francisco area means you have to see Muir Woods National Park. The trees are beyond astonishing. They have little trails you can follow and admire the different wonders these trees have created by growing over many years. They also have... More

Muir Woods is lovely, and worth the drive from San Francisco. It is an easy stroll for all abilities. The on premises Cafe was wonderful, terrific homemade food, and very thoughtfully presented with a big nod to careful recycling and utilizing local farm products.

This is a must do if you are travelling in the US, there are plenty of facilities around and assistance from staff in the region. The nature walk is outstanding with lots of plaques and information about the history of different areas of the woods. We took a bus to the entry and it was very cheap so I would... More

The drive to Muir Woods is fairly stressful with narrow/windy roads. It seemed that everyone was taking their time. Once you get there, it is beautiful. My cell phone (I'm on Verizon) didn't work, so don't expect to have service in the park. I only had an hour and suggest you try and stay for longer. The employees were very... More

We enjoyed the walk around the limited part of the park . A lot of the trails were closed off for maintenance which was a shame . We did see some beautiful 1000 year old trees however , was definitely worth the trip . 7 dollar entry fee . Food is quite expensive as you'd expect .

Muir Woods is a magnificent walk through time. The redwood forests covered the Northern California coastal valleys before the 1800s. Muir Woods is one of the last uncut stands of redwoods. The visitor center offers trail information and you will also find easy to read signage throughout the park. The park is open 8 am until sunset year round. The... More

Great for a day trip. We took the Dipsea Trail and it was quite a hike. Mostly an uphill climb, you're better off wearing hiking shoes. Super quiet and super serene, it was just the perfect getaway. Beware of ticks. You can get a few on your clothing, so just make sure you dust your jackets when you're done.

This was our first trip to Muir Woods on a vacation to Oakland to visit family. Our son suggested this park and it was everything and more. If you are 65 or older, make sure you tell them this first at the ticket office, as they will offer you a lifetime pass to all national parks for a one time... More

This beautiful place will leave you spell bound with all of it's natural beauty. The trails are easy to navigate and plenty of educational signage to help you learn more about the park. I find this place to be very tranquil and peaceful.
