Had a fantastic time with Tom. He picked us up at our hotel and we arrived at Muir Woods early enough to beat the heat and crowds. Covered several miles of walking and beautiful sites. Hit all the good photo spots as well.

It was a lovely walk through the woods and don't get me wrong, they are some big trees, but we were all expecting those humungous trees that you can drive a car through when they're hollowed out. Its a well kept path, for any level of outdoor enthusiast. It smells lovely. The gift shop is pricey but they have some... More

I love the concept of living green, like nature, and all that; but I couldnt help feel as I was walking along a path (still don't know which one it was since we did not pay $1 for map although we did glance at one quickly but that wasn't of any help) that there somehow was suppose to be something...

We did a tour with Tom Martell and had an amazing time! He picked us up at our hotel early in the morning and we got to the park before many other people. We were able to see the Muri Woods without crowds and he led us off the boardwalk to a trail with no other tours on it! There... More

We only had about 30 minutes at the park so just walked around and read the signs and enjoyed the beautiful, majestic trees. It was really neat to see the age of the trees and the different phases (fires, damage, restoration) they've been through. It's a wonderful area to walk and relax and enjoy nature.

Our friends wanted to stop here on our way to Napa. I thought it would be boring. Absolutely so unique and breathtaking! Well worth the time! You can make it as short as a half mile loop or as long as an entire afternoon of hiking on the off shoots of the path. Great for families with children too! Go!!

My father had told me I needed to see the Redwood trees. Muir Woods was fantastic. Seeing all the different ways the trees developed was amazing. Something for the entire family to see. This was one of the highlights of my trip!!

Actually my title is meant as kind of a joke. The trees are awesome and there are a lot of them to be sure.However, after a while it did get redundant. Unfortunately we did not go on the hikes but I have heard that they are well worth the effort. Being a "flatlander" (Saskatchewan, Canada) it was great to see... More

This is a great place to visit, but if you are afraid of HEIGHTS and very small paths this is not for you. Loved looking at the trees but when we went on one of the paths, it was very narrow, NO rail or anything. I looked down the whole time and was so scared when we finally made it... More

The redwood trees were so towering it was immense. The preserved area felt so serene and calm, I went in the morning and the damp chilly conditions really made the atmosphere that much more incredible. It was nice to see information signs throughout the walk giving tourists interesting background and history. The parking gets ludicrously busy by 10:00am so be... More
