Muir Woods

We don't like organized tours. Would this option be possible. Leaving from SF on Route # 4 with Golden Gate Transit and getting off at Mill Valley Depot (Miller and Sunnyside). Would it then be possible to take a cab to Muir Woods ? How far is it ? Or are there any other suggestions ?

thanks, Suzanne

That's a long cab ride and the downside is how to get back? Cell service is extremely spotty (meaning nonexistent) at the Woods.

When you are travelling? There is a shuttle bus to the Woods from the Sausalito ferry on weekends until October 26.

Your other options are HOHO bus or tour buses that do Muir. I understand the dislike of organized tours but there are some that are done in small groups. For an excellent Muir experience, Tom's Tour comes highly recommended. http://muirwoodstour.com/

well cab will be more expensive than renting a car for the day and checking out that part of our Bay Area from Marin Headlands to Sausalito to Muir Woods to Stinson Beach or even going further, There is an excellent day trip outlined in the top questions that covers sonoma county and another redwood grove and given that you may spend half a day if you try the bus and cab route, you may want to spend the whole day without a tour and do what you want to do by car

Here is the day trip mentioned by Belomiser. It goes to the Sonoma Coast and then to Armstrong Grove Redwoods Nature Preserve and then through the Sonoma Valley wine country to the historic town of Sonoma. This is an easy day trip. Mileage and options are included if you want to customize it.
