"Visiting the woods" Top 5 Page for this destination Muir Woods National Monument Things to Do Tip by goingsolo


Muir Woods is a short and scenic drive from San Francisco. It is located a couple of miles north of the city on hwy 101. The road to the woods is steep and winding and goes up a portion of Mount Tamalpais.

If you're visiting San Francisco, you'll need a car to get here, unless you're willing to pay for an expensive taxi ride. An alternative is to take on of the half day tours. The drawback to this is that you are only allowed about an hour in the park. But, if you want to make a day of it, you can sign up for the morning tour and arrange to take the afternoon bus back. Most tour companies offer the tour twice a day and are willing to accommodate such requests.

Directions: 101 north to the Stinson Beach exit and follow the signs
