Muir Woods National Forest
Discover the tallest trees on planet earth.
Stroll through the walking trails in tranquil Muir Woods to see California's coastal redwoods, the tallest living things on earth. Muir Woods is one of the last remaining stands of old-growth coastal redwood forest, sustained by temperate marine fog. You'll see redwoods that are over 800 years old, having grown from tiny seeds to heights of up to 258 feet (79 m).
Discover the world's most infamous prison.
Also known as 'The Rock', the federal prison once established on Alcatraz Island is synonymous with notorious bank robbers and murderers like Al Capone, 'Machine Gun' Kelly, and the 'Birdman of Alcatraz', Robert Stroud. Now empty, and managed by the National Park Service, you can hop on a ferry to visit Alcatraz for yourself. Once you arrive, you'll have hours to explore the infamous facility with a personal audioguide. Learn about the lives of prisoners and guards alike, inspect the cells, and take in magnificent views of surrounding San Francisco Bay.
