Situated at the base of Mount Tamalpais is the Muir Woods National Monument, a forest of old coast redwoods, one of the few remaining in California. The woods are named after John Muir, a naturalist and conservationist who fought for the creation of national parks. The Main Trail is paved and is very crowded especially on weekends; it features one of the tallest trees in the forest. If you follow one of the trails branching from the Main Trail you can leave the crowds behind and enjoy a nice hike. Muir Woods is accesible by car. There is no public transportation but you can find some tour companies that go there.
