The Muir Woods National Monument is a must-see destination on any visit to the San Francisco Bay Area. Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the forest is just a short drive from the city, 12 miles (19 km) north across the Golden Gate Bridge, making it an easy day trip from San Francisco.

The protected nature reserve is home to one of the world's last remaining coastal redwood forests, made up of the tallest living things on earth. Walking among these giant trees is an incredible experience only found in Northern California and a small part of southern Oregon.

Insider's Tip: The site is not easily accessible via public transit, and parking is extremely limited. Plan to carpool and arrive early (between 8am and 9:30am) or late (one to two hours prior to closing) to secure a spot. Or, skip the hassle of figuring out transportation by booking a tour that includes transport from San Francisco — or even combines a trip to the woods with a visit to Sausalito, wine country, or Alcatraz.

Practical Info

To get to Muir Woods from San Francisco, drive north on Highway 101, exit at Highway 1, and continue north along Highway 1/Shoreline Highway. Then take Panoramic Highway, a right-hand fork. Continue about one mile (1.5 km) to Four Corners, where you'll turn left onto Muir Woods Road.
