It was nice to get out of the city and enjoy the natural beauty of Muir Woods. Very easy walking paths. Can spend as much time as you want since various paths circle back at what ever length/time you want to spend. Redwood are beautiful...More
Truly left us speechless. One of true natural wonders of our planet.
One word of advice -- make sure to buy parking online before you go. I didn't read up enough, and so didn't, and got there and found out that without it I couldn't...More
Visited on 9/24/2018 (Monday): Reserved a parking spot and purchased tickets online ahead of time so when we showed up they gave us a parking spot immediately and then when we went to the entrance we showed our tickets and we walked right in. Muir...More

Make sure to reserve a spot for your car. The day we visited the lot wasn't crowded so they let us park early, they almost turned us away. The walk is very peaceful. Bring a light jacket as the sun is blocked out for much...More
Our group rented a car then traveled to Muir Woods. If you get a car you need to reserve your parking ticket before you arrive. If you don’t the walk to get to the woods is 3-4 miles. To get this reservation just go to...More

Greetings Luke C.,
1-800-410-2419 is the phone number to call. This can be found on the Muir Woods web site. Takes a bit of digging to find it. Don't know why it isn't in the front. The person answering the phone can help you. Have a great visit.
I'm not sure what time the ticket booth opens. Yes, you could probably go in without paying. The problem is parking. The ONLY place there is to park belongs to the facility. And you MUST have a reservation. Good luck.
