Muir Woods has a rich and varied history, from its use by the Coast Miwok people, to its early days of tourism and the Mount Tamalpais Mill Valley Scenic Railway, to an era of conservation, to modern preservation. In each era, the forest has been affected by the actions of humans, for better or for worse. Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, this coastal redwood preserve features majestic redwoods and scenic hiking trails that draw more than 1.5 million visitors each year.

Trust me and the countless other reviewers on this point: get there early when the park opens and choose a weekday off season. You will have a few hours of near solitude to enjoy this treasure. If you ignore this advice, be prepared to deal...More

Truly a majestic place. Highly recommend this. Great for families. Eat before you go or bring a lunch as the food and drinks are extremely expensive.

I was very impressed with Muir Woods! Of course the 200 ft + trees are impressive but the 2 mile walking path was great! The US park service did a great job here. It’s simple walk and pretty much all fitness levels can handle it....More

This is the most peaceful and amazing natural wonder and you must see it. You can take a short hike or a much longer hike. There is a flat, less strenuous path that would not require climbing or you can climb high and see the...More
