Muir Woods National Monument in Marin County boasts of its old growth towering Redwood trees through which scenic trails meander to Bohemian Grove, Cathedral Grove, and Redwood Creek.

Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the Muir Woods National Monument has over 240 acres of Coast Redwoods.

Beautiful place with easy hikes! A good portion is wheelchair accessible too! Water stations throughout to refill bottles or backpacks. Helpful rangers in the gift shop and brochures with maps and check points along the way. For the avid hiker this may be a little too structured but coming from hiking 2 days in Zion a few days prior to this trip I may be a little biased ;) Still a great place to visit and hike and really you could just spend a few hours here an get some decent hikes in!
Awesome place for a hike! Great views, not many people and easy parking. When hiking, you can end up in stinson beach which has a great selection of restaurants and stores. You can also end up on the beach which is great for kids and playing in the water. Overall, this hike is fantastic and is great for beginners or advanced trail runners! Would definitely recommend.
PLAN AHEAD FOR PARKING. You need to reserve parking. If you park in overflow, you will have a little hike to get to the visitor center. Fascinating park! Easy walking trails for all ages. They have a junior ranger program as well.
All I can say is wow. I have finally found where I'm supposed to be. Absolutely amazing experience except for all the people who feel the need to walk around talking to each other at full volume. If you don't want to appreciate nature and would rather walk around talking maybe the mall is a better choice. The redwoods deserve some reverence as they are astounding
Feels like you're walking in history! The place feels so ancient. There are a number of brilliant trails around the area. We took the Canopy Trail and got a great view of the forest from above the treeline. The paths inside the monument are superbly maintained with tree-walks organized by park rangers at specific intervals. Don't forget to get a parking reservation before you decide to visit!
