Muir Woods National Monument Things to Do: 16 reviews and 27 photos
We went to stay near here rather than staying in San Francisco. Although I have been to some of the other big tree parks as a child (including another Coastal Redwood park Big Basin), I hadn't been to Muir Woods. The park was named for John Muir - Upon learning of its dedication, Mr. Muir declared, "This is the best tree-lovers monument that could possibly be found in all the forests of the world."
Children under 15 are free. After we went to the visitor center, we took the self-guiding
nature trail. There is a 1/2 hour loop, a 1 hour loop, and a 1 1/2 hour loop as well as longer hikes on trails that extend into surrounding parks. All of these walks afford views of thousands of old-growth coast redwoods, the tallest living things in the world.
Address: Mill Valley
Directions: 11 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Take Highway 101 to the Highway 1/ Stinson Beach Exit. Follow the signs to Muir Woods. Roads to the park are steep and winding.
