Muir Woods

We will be spending some time in Monterey and will have a car while there. On our way to San Fran before we turn the car in that evening we want to go to Muir Woods. The website is a bit confusing. Is Muir Beach in the park? It says that the Muir Beach parking lot will be closed for the summer so where would we park? I also need an address to put in the gps I don't see that either. I'm not interested in spending a lot of time there , just a quick visit to see the trees so if anyone can tell me where to park , which trails are best I appreciate any help. thanks! I called the phone number on the website but I just keep getting recorded messages.

A good resource is parksconservancy.org/visit/…muir-beach.html where you'll note that the north end of the beach (behind some rocks) is clothing optional. Don't let it deter you as it is a beautiful beach. Just wanted to give you a heads up in case you're traveling with kids.

Do you know if the Muir Beach Lookout is open. I see the beach parking is closed just not sure if these are two different things as I have never been before. Thanks!

They are two different things. The Muir Beach Overlook is up on the cliffs. Great view. I believe the only parking lot closure is the one at beach level.
