Muir Woods National Monument, San Francisco Reviews

  • Muir Woods is a beautiful setting in Northern California. One of the places where you can see the Giant Redwoods. The drive up is through some very windy roads that are very narrow at times. Makes for a great adventure. Parking lot is a small walk to entrance with plenty of bathrooms and some educational markers as you head to entrance. There is a nominal fee to enter. I was happily surprised to find out there was a special National Parks pass for the handicapped. That was a nice perk. There are marked out wooden pathways for you to walk on and was easy to assess with my cane and even saw a wheelchair bound person explore with ease. There was a very small concession area that didn't have a lot to offer and drinks were very expensive. The gift shop was crowded and had a little bit of everything. Most things were moderately priced. Some items were made out of fallen Redwoods trees. Unfortunately, they do have items that appear to be made from the trees but in reality are not and imported from China. Make sure you check all tags before you purchase. Cannot wait to go back and take my daughter.

  • Visited Muir Woods National Monument as part of the Dylan's Famous Tour of San Francisco. The park was beautiful and its quite crowded. The main objective to come here is to watch the amazing redwood trees which was absolutely tall and beautiful. As time is quite limited as we only have 1 hour, we only manage to walk the main trail which was wonderful. Muir Woods trails are easy to walk as its flat and if you like photography, there are much photo opportunity here. The weather at that time were good with temperature of around 15 C.

  • BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL & SERENE. This place is closest to the nature with Giant Red Wood Trees, well designed trails & some exotic flora & fauna around. You can actually feel here how the air is different & pure Vs. rest of the California. Carry your own water bottles & wear comfortable clothing. Spend some time meditating & you will feel refresh. While Yosemite takes almost 02 days to cover, you can easily cover this in 5-6 hours (to & fro) & spending couple of hours in Sausalito as you return. Amazing place! Muir Woods closes by 6pm - hence plan accordingly.

  • Beautiful trees, and plenty of trails besides the main one through the national monument. You could easily hike an entire day in this area. Trails are well maintained. I will say, the main trail through the monument is pretty busy, and takes away a bit of the calm and quiet that I love about hiking. The other tricky part is you need to reserve parking in advance, or do what we did and plan ahead to park further away and hike in. Just make sure to plan in advance.

  • Not to be missed! But you MUST get there early! We arrived at 7:58am for an 8am parking lot (yes, you need advanced parking reservations and they don’t include the $10 admission) and got a close parking spot and went right in. Highly recommend getting off the main trail and exploring more of the hillside trails. Fern Creek to Camp Eastwood is particularly nice and has several spots were you can cross a downed tree over the creek. By our 10am return to the main trail it was beginning to be crowded and much less of a peaceful, majestic area.
