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

It is very nice to get away from the city to spend some ours walking in the forest. The giant trees are beautiful and the walking paths are really nice. Make sure to be there early because it might be difficult to find a parking. Do not miss out Sausalito on the way back to San Francisco.

This was an interesting attraction in that I had never seen trees so large. These giant trees are hundreds of years old. The down side is that parking is extremely limited. Cars park on the side of the street and you may have to walk 1-2 miles to get to the park.

We just returned from a long weekend in San Francisco and the highlight for our family (including two college age boys) was spending Friday morning on a hiking tour with Tom Martell. Tom picked up our family at our hotel in Union Square and along with three other people, drove us to Muir Woods to experience the quiet beauty of... More

If you're an adventure traveller you'll find this very boring but for a city tourist as I was, visiting San Francisco, a day tour to the Muir Woods was a great get-away nature experience with fresh air and great scenery.

We loved the walk hated the crowds. Get there early and take either the beach path or the hill path. The main flat path is crowded with tourist, strollers and looks more like a mall than a nature walk. Parking is an issue and the walk from where you parked might be longer than the one you take in the... More

What a difference the tour guide can make. Aaron Taylor is the best guide we have come across. Our tour to Muir Woods was with the Gray Line tour, we were so lucky to get Aaron. He was so informative and friendly. He loved questions from the group and tried to explain what not to miss during our walk through... More

I was so excited to take this tour - I booked it six months in advance. Tom picks you up at your hotel and drives you over the Golden Gate Bridge in the fog to beautiful Muir Woods - early in the morning before the crowds arrive. Those trees are just incredible - the first part of tour is walking... More
