Muir Woods - how busy on Christmas Day?

I know Muir Woods gets VERY busy during much of the year, but that the shuttle bus doesn't run in the winter. It appears that Muir Woods is open on Christmas Day, but does anyone know whether the place is very busy on that day? If so, how early in the day should I try to arrive to avoid a crowd?

Agree with belo. You won't be the only one with that idea.

Muir Woods is one of the few major attractions that is open on Christmas Day, so many, many people will be going if the weather is any good. Go early... before 9 am as noted.
