Muir Woods National Monument
Muir Woods National Monument near Sausalito California
Just 12 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge on Highway 1 grows an ancient coast redwood forest named Muir Woods. Within this isolated forest, visitors from all over the world continue to marvel at 1000 year old giant redwood trees that tower 260 feet high. In 1908 President Theodore Roosevelt declared Muir Woods a national monument. The forest was named for conservationist John Muir.
Visitors can stroll along the forest floor on marked paths viewing interpretive displays in this magnificent, natural setting. Hiking trails wind through the forest, but no dogs, bicycles, picnics or camping are permitted. Bird watching, nature walks and interpretive programs are part of the activities within Muir Woods. The park is open from 8:00am to sunset, daily including holidays. The Muir Woods Café and Gift Shop are open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, September through May and from 9:00am to 6:00pm, June through August.

Summer months are the busiest and parking is challenging; vehicles over 35 feet long are prohibited. A free shuttle bus serves the park on weekends and holidays between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Summer visitors are encouraged to use the shuttle to avoid parking hassles and to spare the environment. Admission is $5 for adults; children 15 and under are free.
