A natural beauty, what a gift to all of us. Majestic redwoods with unbelievable dimensions and details. A must see of you have the chance. Could have stayed there all day and wonderfully quiet secluded area of nature.

We chose to stay on the easy trails and had the most wonderful experience. I visited with my 73 year old mother and daughter. This was a highlight of our trip. I felt as if I were visiting in a fairy world. Active duty military ID= free entry. The café' was quick, adequate and reasonably priced.

Natural beauty at its best, ethereal and lovely. You must see these trees! The cafe could use a but more of a variety in foods but its ok, it serves it purpose of feeding quickly and minimally.

My husband and I visited Muir Woods on a recent trip to San Francisco. The only negative about it was how curvy the roads were to get to it. Once there, the woods were peaceful, a great change from the hustle and bustle of the city. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful old trees and walking the trails. We were impressed... More

Great for hiking through the forest, great for nature spotting, and great for natural history. Turn up before 10:00am to get parking in the car park, or expect to walk a few miles to find a spot.

Lovely walking tour through beautiful redwood trees. Just a short drive from San Francisco. Get there early as parking fills up very fast! The fog had lifted when we were there so the sun was shining through the trees making for a delightful view!

Extranomical Tours was exceptional for this tour as we had a full 2 hours to view this wonderful place. We arrived before 9:00AM so missed most of then other tourists as we wandered through the forest to view the magnificent redwood trees. It was almost like having the entire forest to ourselves, making our visit a highlight of our stay... More

This was a very rushed trip - we had a few extra hours after our business meeting was over. But it was well worth the drive. Took us over the Golden Gate Bridge and up the mountain. We were able to cover the first 4 bridges and then climb up the mountain for about a mile and half. THen back... More

Nice trip to woods the walk was so scenic and got to cross the Golden Gate Bridge was a bonus. We got a small tour of Saulsilito which is a nice quaint town.
