Wander among an ancient stand of the world's tallest trees in 550-acre Muir Woods. The 1-mile Main Trail Loop is a gentle walk alongside Redwood Creek to the 1000-year-old trees at Cathedral Grove; it returns via Bohemian Grove, where the tallest tree in the park stands 254ft high. The Dipsea Trail is a good 2-mile hike up to the top of aptly named Cardiac Hill. Come midweek to avoid crowds; otherwise arrive early morning or late afternoon.

No camping or picnicking is permitted. Because the parking lot is often full, ride the seasonal Muir Woods Shuttle . You can also walk down into Muir Woods by taking trails from the Panoramic Hwy, such as the Bootjack Trail from the Bootjack picnic area, or from Mt Tamalpais’ Pantoll Station campground, along the Ben Johnson Trail.
