"Muir Beach: Small is Beautiful!" Muir by Gwynethart

Muir Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 7 photos

Small, yet open and expansive...

Muir Woods gets many visitors, as it is known for the huge old redwood trees, but close by is the small southern Marin County "town" of Muir Beach. There is a small population of under 200 people who live there.

Would you like to see some movies of Muir Beach, California? I just made these with my little camera:

Rugged Beauty

This area is set around the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. There is even a Zen Buddhist meditation retreat called the Green Gulch Farm/Zen Center.

The wildlife here is plentiful: fox, deer, birds, coyote, salmon, and butterflies abound!
