Walking Among the Tallest Living Things on Earth
MILL VALLEY, CALIFORNIA – A federally protected National Monument since 1908, Muir Woods is a popular place to visit in the San Francisco area. Park visitors can hike the 6 miles of trails or select a 1/2 hour, 1 hour or 1/12 hour loop. Along the way, visitors pose for pictures with the old-growth coast redwood trees, the tallest living things in the world, and see other trees and shrubs.
The park is open 365 days a year, but beginning in early 2018, the National Park Service is implementing a parking and shuttle reservation system at Muir Woods. The parking reservation fee will be $8/vehicle, and the shuttle reservation fee will be $3/person. The purpose of the new system is to minimize safety risks, manage the visitation levels, allow visitors to plan their trip in advance and reduce overcrowding. However, visitors arriving by commercial carrier, on foot or bicycle will not be required to use the reservation system.
