This is one of my top picks for a day trip out of San Francisco- it's called the Nature Friends beer garden off of the Redwood Trail in Muir Woods, and it looks like an Austrian ski chalet nestled on the side of the hill. My husband and I are big hikers, and we love a good sweaty all-day trek,... More

Okay, so maybe I'm cynical. My husband had gone a couple of years prior and told me that I had to put Muir Woods on the top of my sightseeing list. So I found a couple of new friends from the hostel to go with me, and we made our way up there. After two busses to get to the... More

Muir woods is astonishing! We wanted to see the Redwoods, but didn't have time to drive the 2+ hrs. to the Redwood National Forest. Muir Woods is convenient to SanFrancisco and satisfied the desire to see the beautiful trees. We went on a weekday and so we found parking close by. There is a shuttle that will take you there...

This is simply one of the most amazing places in the United States. We try to come every time we're in the area because a walk through these trees is such a treat. Even the best photos of this place fall short in capturing the magnificence of this forest. Recent improvements to some of the walk ways insure that almost... More

Visiting Muir Woods National Monument was one of the highlights of our trip. The redwoods and forest are breathtaking...pictures don't do this place justice. We walked the trails leading to the Ocean View that go to the rim of the canyon...beautiful walk. This is not far over the Golden Gate Bridge from SF...I would say it is a "must see".

Haunting, quiet, hard to believe the age and size of the redwoods. A most memorable experience. Will Take you a few hours. Free shuttles are available from different locations. Great service if the park is busy

My first visit to Muir Woods was over 30 years ago, and this place is still amazing. It was a great counterpoint to Fisherman's Wharf and the other attractions around the Bay.

Muir Woods is a most special and serene place, with both wood planked walking paths as well as winding trails through the woods, as well as numerous seating areas. If you need a break from the hectic nature of today's fast paced world, or it you need to take a breath to think, or if you simply want to experience... More

We came toward the end of the day and were pretty exhausted. So glad we made it out to see this beautiful forest. The Redwoods are breathtaking. The woods are peaceful and calming. Worth the windy roads to get here.
