  • Don't come here with a loud voice... Or chatter at all. This is a sacred land.
  • Want to get away from the tourists, but not willing to commit to an all day hike? Try the Ocean View > Lost > Fossil Creek > Main loop. ~2 hours, great sights, few people
  • Be on the lookout for the Steller's Jay and explore the beautiful Redwoods.
  • a walk among giants. start up the ocean view trail to the top and pick your return.
  • Get there early or parking will be beyond crazy.
  • Looking for something to do on a Lazy Sunday? Grab the nearest Zipcar and head to Muir Woods with your sweetheart.

  • 2 Tips for the Ocean View Trail: 1) estimate is 2.5 hours, but my wife and I did it in 1:10. 2) It's a lovely walk, but you're just hiking up to the road you drove to reach Muir's parking. Same view.
  • Purely amazing!!!! Go early to avoid the crowds.
  • I was here all afternoon but there isn't a gps signal so just now checking in.
  • Admire the big wood.
  • Only spent about half an hour here but was a really nice walk. Can get cold because of the large trees shading you from the sun.
  • Come here on a week day where you will fight less Louis Vuitton toting ladies for solitude.
  • If you are visiting with a tour, be mindful that it's only 2 hours. There are much more amazing sights/trails if you make it an all day affair.
  • Amazing redwood forest! Parking is packed on weekends and holidays. Plan to park on the road, almost half mile away if you go then!
  • Parking is very difficult. Lots fill up fast do get to the park early if you want to get a spot. Hiking trails leave from the visitors center. Take at least the mile loop for key views.
